Transfer: Crystal Palace to get shocking £60million bid for Zaha

Crystal Palace are facing a fresh fight to keep hold of Wilfried Zaha after Napoli entered the race for his signature, according to Sky Sports.

The Italian club have responded to losing out to Arsenal on Nicolas Pepe by turning their attention to Zaha.

The Gunners had previously identified Zaha as a transfer target but opted for Pepe, after seeing a bid for the Palace winger rejected.

Napoli had made Pepe their primary target, but Arsenal are now poised to complete a £72million deal to take the Lille forward to the Emirates.

This has prompted the Serie A club to explore other options.

And it is understood that Napoli are now willing to pay £60million to land Zaha.

Impressive!!!  The Super Eagles wins the Fight for 3rd Place

 

Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo netted the only goal as Nigeria ran away with a 1-0 win against Tunisia in the third-place match at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The 30-year-old forward, who is now the tournament’s top scorer with five goals, was gifted an easy tap-in following a Tunisian defensive mix-up at the Al Salam Stadium.

Jamilu Collins’ cross from the left was poorly parried by goalkeeper Moez Ben Cherifa against the legs of defender Yassine Meriah.

The defender tried to stop it from going over the line before Ighalo pounced to give Nigeria a third minute lead.
