Europa League finalists Arsenal have made a big bid for one of their top transfer targets this summer.
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has emerged as a top transfer target for the Gunners during this summer’s transfer window.
Arsenal want to sign a new winger this summer and Zaha has been identified by the North Londoners as the man for the job.
According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have made a first bid of £40m for Wilfried Zaha.
The Arsenal bid made on Monday is a long way from the £100m price tag slapped on the Ivorian international player by Crystal Palace.
The Eagles are reluctant to lose their best player this summer, having already seen a key player leave the club in the last 48 hours.
Young English right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka left Crystal Palace for Manchester United at the weekend after the two teams agreed on a £50m deal for the player including £5m in add-ons.
Wan-Bissaka was one of the best right-backs in the Premier League last season and he was rightly named the Crystal Palace Player of the Year.
On the part of Wilfried Zaha, the Crystal Palace winger has told the club to negotiate his transfer to Arsenal this summer.
