Wilfried Zaha’s supposed move to Arsenal faces new dilemma

Wilfried Zaha’s supposed move to Arsenal faces new dilemma”

Zaha has been identified as Emery's primary target but we've struggling to agree terms for the Ivory Coast global having seen our opening £40m bid rejected by Palace as it fell well short of their valuation. The Gunners made a derisory bid of £40m last week that was swiftly rejected, with the Eagles wanting closer to the £100m mark.

Emery has been restricted to a tight transfer budget this summer, with just £45m available for the Spaniard to spend.

Arsenal will offer Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson in addition to the original £40m bid.

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

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha's prospects of joining Arsenal are diminishing by the day, with the player's representatives now doubting a deal can be done.

Chambers and Elneny have been linked with Palace in the past while Jenkinson would offer them a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back so fingers crossed they are open to this player plus cash deal as it would be an excellent piece of business if we could pull it off.

Palace stand to lose a brilliant forward player, so surely the Gunners should be offering someone who could replace the former Manchester United man at the very least.

"Wilfried will always hold Crystal Palace and their fans in the highest regard and all the support they have given means the world to him", he said.

A report has picked out three players that Arsenal will consider if they fail to land their number one target Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.

"I hope Palace will be able to see their way to agreeing a deal with Arsenal that allows Wilfried to realise his dream of playing European football for the club he's supported since childhood".
