Wilfried Zaha is being lined up to replace Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal.

Sanchez is expected to leave the club in January or next summer after failing to sign a new contract.

And Gunners boss Arsene Wenger could move for £35m-rated Zaha.

Palace’s star man signed a new five-year deal in the summer, and would be swapping a relegation battle for a Premier League title race if he moved to the Emirates.

The Sun reports the Eagles are determined to keep Zaha, who has scored two goals this season.

He has been playing as an emergency striker in the absence of the crocked Christian Benteke, but is likely to move out wide when the big Belgian returns against Everton on Saturday.

Former Manchester United winger Zaha has been tracked by Tottenham and Arsenal before, and his impressive early season form could see Palace fend off more suitors in January.
