Crystal Palace forward, Wilfred Zaha is exactly the type of player Arsenal needs, Emmanuel Petit has said. He recently revealed that the Gunners should do everything possible to snap up the winger this summer.
According to him, Arsenal used to play with wingers and guys who could make a difference on the flank, and Zaha can definitely bring the good days back.
Petit added that Zaha has what it takes to take responsibility and show the required hunger to get Arsenal back to the top.
His words, “Wilfried Zaha has been repeatedly linked with Arsenal in recent years,”
“Arsenal used to play with wingers and guys who could make a difference on the flank, who would take responsibility and show the hunger and desire to get the victory – that was the Arsenal that I knew!”
“When I played for Arsenal in the late 90s, we had Marc Overmars, Sylvain Wiltord and Robert Pires – these players were so exciting to watch. Zaha is an unpredictable player, you don’t know what he’s going to do with the ball.”
“He’s got a strong character, and sometimes he needs to control of his emotions, but he’s exactly the kind of player Arsenal need. He’d get the fans excited and stimulate his own team-mates too.”
“For ages, Arsenal haven’t had a player who could dribble or make a difference with the ball at his feet. With Zaha, they would have somebody capable of taking responsibility and not scared to take on defenders.”
