Europa League finalists Arsenal are reportedly eyeing two alternatives in the event that the much publicised move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha collapses.

This is according to the publication from the stables of popular English news portal The Sun which claimed that the Gunners have identified both Malcom and Ryan Fraser as alternatives for the aforementioned Zaha.

Malcom plays his club football for Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona at the moment, while Ryan Fraser laces his boots for Premier League outfit Bournemouth.

Crystal Palace have slapped an asking price of £80m on Wilfried Zaha which is out of the price range of the Gunners.

Arsenal have a meager transfer budget of £45m as they try to spend money on new players.

The said transfer budget excludes the funds from the sale of players.

The Brazilian winger didn’t have the best of debut seasons at Barcelona following his controversial €41m move to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona snatched his transfer from under the noses of Italian capital club AS Roma.

Everton are also interested in a deal for the aforementioned Malcom.

On his part, Ryan Fraser had a very good season and it’s not strange that clubs want to sign him this summer.
