Wilfried Zaha has hit out at the “sad and annoying” speculation surrounding him at present, with a big-money transfer to Arsenal continuing to be mooted.
The Crystal Palace winger finds himself at the centre of a long-running saga.
An approach from Emirates Stadium has been made, although the terms offered by the Gunners have fallen a long way short of the Eagles’ valuation.
That has sparked further rounds of gossip, with Palace said to be frustrated at the approach being taken by a Premier League rival to unsettle their star man.
Zaha is disappointed at the attention he is being given, especially as his focus is currently locked on events at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) with the Ivory Coast.
He has posted in a message on social media: “Whatever happened to speaking facts?
“It’s sad and annoying how anyone will just open their mouth and speak on things or situations they know absolutely nothing about.”
