Crystal Palace to allow Wilfried Zaha leave for suitable price around £40m with Man United and Arsenal linked as possible destination for front-man.
Palace have told Wilfried Zaha that he can leave Selhurst Park if an acceptable offer comes in, which is thought to be around £40m, according to The Times.
Man United and Arsenal have been prime suitors of the Ivorian attacker, and can now make approach to land the player as Palace is willing to let him leave
The 27 years old had told his club to let him join Arsenal last season, but their asking price is way behind what Arsenal budgeted.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still wants to strengthen his attack, as he’s going for Sancho, but Dortmund is asking high for the 20 years old. They can turn to Zaha as his price is half of what Dortmund is asking for Sancho.
Mikel Arteta on the other side, signed the Ivorian Country Man, Nicolas Pepe, from Lille last season after Zaha was heavily linked with the Club.
Aubameyang seems not to be staying, as has not signed contract yet and Barca and Juventus have also been linked to him, Arsenal could get Zaha to strength their attack
Asked about Zaha’s future, Roy Hodgson told The Times: “That’s the 64,000 dollar question that one, always. Wilf has made it clear ever since I came to the club, really, that he would like to move on and find some pastures new”
“But of course he is a very valuable player and the club realises his value. Everything will depend on what sort of offers the club receives for him”
“Or maybe we satisfy his wishes and allow him to go after giving good service to the club for a period of time.
He continued: “Quite frankly I have no answer. . . it will be a matter of seeing what transpires. He is a top-quality player and it is a matter for Steve Parish. They will have to take any offers into consideration”
“I’m pretty certain that I will be consulted, but the final decision will be a club one.” Hodgson concluded.
