Bayern Munich have emerged as surprise contenders in the race to sign Arsenal target and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

According to a report from 90min, as cited on BT Sport, the German champions are ready to provide competition in the race to sign the player.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move to sign Zaha this summer, with the Ivorian international said to be Unai Emery’s priority in the current transfer window.

Any potential deal is going to be tough for Arsenal to complete, with Palace unwilling to lower their stance on their huge asking price, while Emery’s side are also working on a smaller transfer budget.

Bayern Munich are in the market for widemen this summer as they look to replace both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery – who both left the club at the end of last season.

The Bundesliga champions have been linked with the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Leroy Sane and Gareth Bale this summer, but Zaha may be considered as a cheaper option.


Which of the two clubs should Zaha join and why?
