Wilfried Zaha is arguably the most wanted property in English football right now—or so the papers would have you believe. Crystal Palace's explosive starlet is being linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal.
This is one of those rumours that runs every time a transfer window appears. If neither team sign Zaha in January, you can bet he'll be linked to the same set of clubs during the summer.
Things have gotten silly, with sources reporting Zaha revealed Manchester United talks on Twitter, despite no suggestion of that happening (via The Independent).
Both Manchester United and Arsenal could use Zaha in the future. Right now, these teams can do without the player's talent. Ferguson's squad is soon to be bolstered by the return of Nani, who appears to have a final opportunity to prove himself (via The Guardian).
Arsene Wenger is also confident of luring Theo Walcott into a new deal. If the winger-turned-striker commits to an Emirates future (via BBC Sport), the manager can focus on signing more immediate reinforcements.
