Wilfried Zaha is ‘easily good enough’ for Arsenal, according to Ian Wright.

The 24-year-old has bounced back from an early-season setback to lift Crystal Palace off the base of the English Premier League table.

The Eagles are unbeaten in their last seven games and are now 14th in the top-flight log, with their star man contributing four goals.

Wright said Roy Hodgson has his team set to play to the strength of the Cote d’Ivoire international, and he believes that Arsene Wenger’s side - not Tottenham who have been linked to the former Manchester United man - would be a good fit for his style.

“I believe Zaha is someone who loves it there,” Wright told Sky Sports.

“If he moved on, would they understand him with the way he plays?

“Would he fit in with someone else’s style in the way Palace has him play exactly the way he wants?

“Wilf has a decision to make. If he carries on playing like that, then teams will want him.

“I know Spurs linked and I think Arsenal been linked and they should be.

“Ability wise, he’s easily good enough for Arsenal.

“To play in a certain system is different as he’s a bit of a maverick.”
