Wilfried Zaha’s supposed move to Arsenal faces new dilemma

11 July 2019

Arsenal's reported budget is widely reported to be only £40m - or £45m depending on which source you read - and the Daily Mirror recently claimed that the Gunners have offered Carl Jenkinson, Calum Chambers and Mohamed Elneny to Palace "in the hope it will act as a sweetener" in a deal for Zaha.

Arsenal value the fringe players at £40m, which would effectively double their offer for Palace's Ivory Coast star, 26.

According to the same story, the north London side have submitted bids for all three of their summer targets but are yet to get any deals over the line.

And The Sun claim Arsenal bosses will highlight to Crystal Palace that accepting the players-plus-cash proposal will see them having to hand over less money to United.

Arsenal have already seen a £40m offer for Zaha, who is now on worldwide duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, knocked backed.

The Emirate dwellers are eager to land the Ivorian global, but Palace £80m price tag may prove too costly for the Gunners.

It has been suggested that the Emirates outfit were preparing a second offer, which would include cash and players.

Earlier this month, Zaha's brother Judicael said: "Wilfried will always hold Crystal Palace and their fans in the highest regard".

Palace paid just £6m when they bought him back in 2015 but agreed a sell-on clause which entitles United to 25 per cent of any future profit.

Emery has been linked with a host of different players in the summer transfer window so far but Arsenal have only completed one summer signing. Wilfried Zaha is Crystal Palace's main star and the club feels that it has every right to put any asking price for their star man since he is still has four more years on his current deal with the Eagles.
