Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has responded to speculation over the club's reported interest in Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The 20 year old has been heavily linked with moves to Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United in recent weeks after making his England debut against Sweden earlier this month.

And Wenger has confirmed that Zaha is on Arsenal's radar, but refused to add where the winger lies on their transfer list.

"We are looking at every player who could strengthen our squad," Wenger said candidly. "He's not more on the list than anybody else."

Zaha has four Championship goals in 17 starts this season for Palace with the club currently sustaining an early-season promotion push having been taken over by Ian Holloway following Dougie Freedman's move to Bolton Wanderers.

He was among six players to make their international debuts against Sweden, as Ryan Shawcross, Leon Osman, Raheem Sterling, Steven Caulker and Arsenal full back Carl Jenkinson were all handed their first caps by Roy Hodgson.

Arsenal travel to Everton in their next Premier League encounter looking improve on a lifeless performance against Aston Villa at the weekend, but Jenkinson wants to take the positives from the goalless draw at Villa Park.

"Villa played well but we need to try and nick a goal and need to try and pick up the three points in games like that," Jenkinson told Arsenal Player.

"We kept a clean sheet and that's important. We just need to go on a little run, a good unbeaten run.

"I think clean sheets are important. Nine times out of 10, if you keep a clean sheet, you go on to win the game. In the main, we haven't conceded a lot of goals this season. I think we're up there [as] one of the best, in terms of goals conceded.

"We go into every game to win it. On Saturday it wasn't meant to be but we've got a huge game against Everton. There's no hiding, we need to win that. It's a massive game for us. We're on a good little run now, but we need to pick up three points on Wednesday and I'm confident we'll do that."
