Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal's interest in bringing Crystal Palace sensation Wilfried Zaha to the Premier League, claiming that the winger is amongst the targets being considered by the north London club.

Arsenal's apparent interest comes after Goal.com exclusively revealed that Manchester United were among the frontrunners for the 20-year-old's signature.

Zaha, who made his England debut in the recent friendly against Sweden, is rumoured to have been attracting the interest of a number of top flight sides in the wake of a string of stunning displays for Palace so far this season.

Wenger was also coy on the on-going situation regarding Theo Walcott's contract negotiations, claiming that there is "no new news" to speak of.
