Zaha: “Emery said he wants to sign me to Arsenal. But they bought Pepe “

Wilfrid could have ended up in the Gunners’ camp.

The leader of “Crystal Palace” Wilfrid Zaha spoke about the failed transfer to London “Arsenal”. The Ivorian was actively wooed into Arsenal when Spanish coach Unai Emery was in charge of the Gunners.

“I had a conversation with the head coach of the club. Emery said, “We don’t have much work to do.” He said that he had seen my performances, that he knew about my ability to influence the course of matches at any time, and all that. He said, “Yes, we would like you to play for us.” “And I would like to go to you,” I answered him.

It was a pretty simple conversation, because I had already played against his Arsenal. The choice between me and Nicolas Pepe had to be made by the club, of course. And they bought Pepe “- said Zaha.
