Wilfried Zaha says he's "too ambitious" to stay at Crystal Palace for the rest of his career.

Zaha has signed a five-year contract to become the highest paid player in the palace's history last summer, thus rejecting all sorts of suitors.

But the 26-year-old has suggested he is ready to leave Selhurst Park, with at least six clubs interested in hiring him.

"I'm too ambitious and not ambitious just to play in a club, but to win things at the club and with Ivory Coast," he told the Daily Mail.

"For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable, I have to seek to play at the highest level, to win trophies. I am blessed to have come so far in my playing career. But I feel there is so much more that I have to offer.

"I have to try out the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that's it. And I'll do the rest.

The article adds that Arsenal "is a big fan" of the striker, who "impressed" Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on loan in Cardiff in 2014. United could therefore re-signify a player who struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford. a year earlier.

Inter Milan and Dortmund would also be interested, while Chelsea and Tottenham were "interested" in Zaha earlier.

The Palace would want a fee "well above £ 50m" to separate its best player, but "there is a growing feeling behind the scenes" that "it's the right time" to sell it.
