Palace Reject Arsenal Swap Deal For Star Player

Wilfried Zaha

Premier League giants Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their quest to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this summer.

This is as a result of the latest Arsenal bid turned down by the South London club.

The Gunners’ latest bid of £40m plus three players was rejected by Crystal Palace who want straight cash of £80m.

The three players offered by Arsenal were Carl Jenkinson, Mohamed ElNeny and Calum Chambers.

The Arsenal bid of cash plus multiple players was revealed via the publication from the Daily Mail.

It was the second offer from Arsenal for Ivorian international star Zaha.

The Gunners had earlier made a first offer of £40m for the Crystal Palace winger.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is desperate to add a winger to his squad ahead of the new season billed to start in August.

Zaha is his top transfer target for that role but Crystal Palace have frustrated Unai Emery and Arsenal who have just £45m to spend on players this summer.

The Crystal Palace winger had his best season at Selhurst Park after he scored 10 goals in addition to five assists in the Premier League.

Arsenal have made just one signing this summer.
