Arsenal boss, Wenger is currently considering life without Chilean forward, Alexis Sanchez as he could depart in January.

Arsene Wenger has identified 25-year-old Crystal Palace forward, Wilfried Zaha as possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

According to The Sun UK, Zaha’s performances have alerted Arsene Wenger, who is now plotting a £35m move for the former Manchester United winger.

Zaha has maintained last year’s fine form despite the Eagles’ problems this term scoring twice so far this season — including the winner against Chelsea — to follow his tally of seven goals and nine assists in 2016-17.

Sanchez is tipped to join Manchester City either in January or when his contract expires next summer.

In other news, Paris Saint-Germain striker, Kylian Mbappe has said that his team-mate, Neymar is “human like everyone else” after the Brazilian was reduced to tears over the weekend by the controversy that has followed him since his arrival from Barcelona.

Mbappe believes that Neymar was just as susceptible to criticism as anyone else.

“It just simply proves that he’s human like everyone else. He’s like us, he has two arms, two legs, a heart, so he can be affected by the criticism he is subjected to,” Mbappe told French television channel TF1 on Sunday.

“From the outside he gives off a certain image, he doesn’t appear to be affected… But when you’re on the inside, he opens himself up to you, he shows he’s a normal person.

“He’s incredibly strong on the pitch that you think he’s just as strong off it, but away from it he remains a normal guy,” Mbappe said.

A tearful Neymar had pleaded with the media to stop the “false stories” about his alleged frosty relations with PSG coach, Unai Emery and fellow striker, Edinson Cavani following Brazil’s 3-1 international friendly win over Japan in Lille.
