Wilfried Zaha has reignited speculation that he will leave Crystal Palace.

The Ivory Coast international was keen on a move away from Selhurst Park last summer after an impressive 2018-19 campaign, even handing in a transfer request late in the window.

Despite the request and strong interest from Arsenal, no deal materialised.

The 27-year-old has had a more modest season this time around, but has not given up hope on a possible switch.

When asked about a move by ex-England defender Rio Ferdinand on his FIVE YouTube channel, Zaha said:

“I’m 27, trophies is what it’s all about. If there’s opportunities for me to win trophies then 100 per cent.”

Zaha grew up not far from Selhurst Park, and although Crystal Palace is ‘his club’, in his youth he was an Arsenal fan.

The winger continued:

“I supported Arsenal so Thierry Henry was definitely someone I thought was unbelievable, I used to watch him constantly.

“I loved Arsenal and I idolised Henry.”

With Arsenal eventually opting to spend a club-record fee on Nicolas Pepe last summer – Zaha’s dream of a switch to North London may be fizzling out, however he has not been shy in expressing his desire to chase silverware.
