Arsenal look to bolster their attacking options this summer as they look to secure the services of Wilfried Zaha.
Crystal Palace winger has announced his desire to leave the Eagles and play for a Champions League team for the upcoming season. This has seen Arsenal make the first move towards securing the services of the Ivory Coast man.
Since moving away from Manchester United permanently in 2015, Zaha has had a good time with Crystal Palace, netting 31 goals for the side. The current season has also seen him record 10 goals and 5 assists.
But currently with the market being inflated, Crystal Palace are demanding a fee around £80m. Sources say that Arsenal have launched an initial £40m bid and are awaiting the club’s reply.
There are very less chances that Arsenal will meet Crystal Palace’s estimated price and the North London club could involve players in the deal.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are ready to send Calum Chambers, Reiss Nelson and Carl Jenkinson down south in exchange for Zaha. But it looks to be seen whether the club first will secure the Champions League spot.
Losing to Chelsea in the Europa League finals at Baku will mean that Unai Emery will have to spend another season playing the same competition.
