Crystal Palace want £80m for reported Arsenal target – report
Crystal Palace will want £80m to sell Wilfried Zaha in the summer transfer window, say reports
Crystal Palace will demand a transfer fee of around £80m to sell Wilfried Zaha in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the Eagles are reluctant to lose both Zaha and defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who looks set to join Manchester United, this summer.
Zaha has been touted as a target for Arsenal in the summer transfer window as Unai Emery sets about bolstering his attacking line-up ahead of next season.
However, the same story says that Crystal Palace ideally do not want to let both Zaha and Wan-Bissaka leave this summer.
The article says that Zaha himself has made it clear that he wants to leave Selhurst Park this summer – but Palace are prepared to hold out for a fee of as much as £80m.
Arsenal are yet to make any new signings this summer as Emery looks to add to his squad.
The Gunners do not have the lure of Champions League football at their disposal after they finished fifth in the Premier League and lost the Europa League final to Chelsea FC.
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
