Kajumba noted City are viewing Zaha, said to be valued at around £40 million, as a possible alternative to Gunners forward Alexis Sanchez, who they came close to landing at the end of the summer transfer window.
The former Manchester United winger has been making steady progress over the past couple of campaigns, and at the moment he's playing the best football of his career. James Dutton of MailOnline can see why some elite teams have an eye on Zaha:
Crystal Palace have been languishing near the bottom of the Premier League table for much of the campaign, although their struggles have not been down to Zaha. The 25-year-old missed a portion of the season due to injury, leaving the Eagles looking toothless in the final third.
Since his return to full fitness, the forward has been sensational to watch and has helped Palace climb out of the relegation zone.
The winger is skilful, powerful and has blistering speed to get away from defenders. When he's on it, he can devastate defences, as he did for Palace in the 3-0 win over Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
FreshPressUK's Ste Hoare believes the winger would be ideal for City and represent value for money at the reported price:
The concern for any side landing Zaha would be that he struggled previously when he made the move to an illustrious club.
In 2013, the winger signed for United having shone for Palace in the second tier. There was excitement aplenty about what he could offer and some glimpses of unquestionable talent. However, he made just two Premier League appearances for the Red Devils before returning to Selhurst Park in 2014.
Bleacher Report's James McNicholas suggested the move came a little too early in Zaha's career, whereas now he appears ready for that step:
The chance to join a City side that is sweeping all before them would be tempting for any player. Guardiola is renowned for getting more out of attacking players, and if he were able to add more consistency to Zaha's game, the Ivorian would be a scary proposition for Premier League defences.
Still, Zaha would have some concerns about leaving Palace for Manchester for a second time, especially in midseason. Plus, given how important he is to their cause, the Eagles would surely resist any offer that came in January, especially when they remain involved in a relegation scrap.
