AS claims the reigning world champions are interested in the former Nigeria youth international who has four years left on his contract.

Sadiq moved to Spain last October and he has been in fine goalscoring form with 15 goals in 29 matches as Almeria aim to return to La Liga.

The 24-year-old is said to have a release clause of €60 million on his contract, which could rise to €80m if Rojiblancos gain promotion to the top-flight.

Two years ago, the Gunners were keen on signing the Ivory Coast international but a £40m bid was reportedly rejected before the Emirates Stadium outfit moved to bring his compatriot Nicolas Pepe from Lille for £72m.

Crystal Palace are reportedly ready to cash in on the 28-year-old with his long-term deal set to expire in 2023.

Zaha has contributed nine goals and two assists in 22 Premier League matches so far for the Eagles who are placed 12th in the table.

Daka recently scored the fastest hat-trick in the Austrian top-flight which took his tally to 23 goals after 19 league appearances while his Senegalese counterpart has returned 14 goals in 29 Ligue 1 games.

Leipzig are second in the Bundesliga table but they are 31 goals behind leaders Bayern Munich.
