I’m hearing rumours circulating around the media and Twitter that Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha will become an Arsenal player next week.

The 20-year-old forward has been heavily linked with a move to The Emirates in January and will make the switch, with the England international being sent back to Selhurst Park on loan until the end of the season, according to reports.

So if reports are to be believed and Zaha will sign for The Gunners next week – if he hasn’t already – would you be happy with this acquisition?

A lot of people that I’ve spoken to believe the youngster would be an excellent signing for the club and although he looks a talent, from what I’ve seen, I just don’t see where he will fit in to the starting line-up.

If he has signed for Arsenal, or on the verge of doing it, then he must be coming in to replace Theo Walcott, who has yet to sign a new deal. This is the only possible reason for this signing.

He possesses great dribbling skills, pace and athleticism. But is he the man to strengthen our squad?

Let me know what you guys think of this. Would love to get your views on the Crystal Palace starlet.
