Wilfried Zaha has got Arsenal fans talking with a cryptic tweet amid speculation that he could be set for a move to the Emirates this summer.

Arsenal have had a bid of £40million rejected for Zaha, with Crystal Palace holding out for a fee of around £70m for the 26-year-old forward.

Unai Emery has a tight transfer budget following the Gunners failure to secure Champions League qualification, but they have not given up hope of signing Zaha just yet.

While Palace were reportedly left furious and incensed by the opening offer, Arsenal are already lining up their next move to lure Zaha from south to north London..

Its no secret that Zaha grew up supporting Arsenal and his brother, Judicael, has pleaded with Palace to let the attacker seal his dream transfer.

Whatever happened to speaking facts? the Ivory Coast international told his followers.

Its sad and annoying how anyone will just open their mouth and speak on things or situations they know absolutely nothing about.
