Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Star threatens to quit club if they sign Wilfried Zaha in the ongoing summer transfer season.

Arsenal’s no.1 target this summer is Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha. They are keen to bring him at the Emirates Stadium. The former Manchester United winger is priced at £80million. However, that hasn’t stopped the Gunners’ from pursuing the Ivorian.

There is one player in the North London side though, who is fretting over the possibility of the new arrival. Nigerian Winger Alex Iwobi admitted that he will consider leaving Arsenal should they bring in Zaha.

Iwobi Speaks Up

“I am not one to chicken out. I have had it all over the years, being told I’m not good enough,” he told the Sun.

“So, whenever the chance comes, I always try and prove I should be starting. But it’s going to be difficult if Zaha comes. He will add more stress.

“I am up for the fight but the only time I would consider leaving is if I am not playing as much as I would like to.

“Obviously, my joy is to play football and not just sit out.

“If it comes to that I would have no choice but to leave. But I would always put up a fight to play — that is what I have done all my life.

“We have big stars already, so by adding another one I’ll just have to prove I can do better than them.”

26-year-old Wilfried Zaha is also reportedly looking forward to playing for Arsenal this season. Arsenal have seen one of their bids for the winger being knocked back. However, he still remains their no.1 target this season.
