Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal’s interest in Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, but denied the club had made a bid for him.
Zaha is also interesting Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, as confirmed by Old Trafford chief executive David Gill on Wednesday, and the pair of clubs are the first to publicly announce an interest.
The Gunners manager denied knowing whether United would be serious contenders with Arsenal if they choose to move for the 20-year-old and also claimed that any number of clubs are accredited with interest in a player when he enquires about them.
“We are looking at him, but at the moment we have not made any bid for him," he told reporters.
"I don't know if Manchester United are in for him as well but anyway if you call any club for any player they will tell you Man United, Milan and Real Madrid are all well in for him.”
Zaha has been setting the Championship alight this season with some exhilarating displays for Palace as they chase promotion to the Premier League.
This season has also seen him receive his first call up to the England squad from manager Roy Hodgson.
Arsenal have struggled for consistency in the attacking department recently and a move for Zaha is more likely a move looking to the future, while Gunners fans may consider the Emirates Stadium outfit’s current deficiencies more pressing.
