Transfer: Arsenal to offer players plus cash for Wilfred Zaha
Written by darling on July 11, 2019
Arsenal are refusing to give up on signing Wilfried Zaha and are preparing to launch a player-plus-cash bid, the UK Mirror reports.
The Gunners have already seen an opening £40m approach rejected, with Crystal Palace demanding £80m for the Ivory Coast star.
As they are unwilling to get near that figure, Arsenal are now discussing putting players into the deal with Calum Chambers, Carl Jenkinson and Mohamed Elneny all possible makeweights.
Zaha has already been pushing for the move to the Emirates, with his brother insisting publicly the winger wants to join Arsenal.
It has become clear that Zaha is ready to push for the move, but Arsenal’s opening approach has also strengthened Palace’s resolve that they will not sell.
