Crystal Palace have placed a £100m price tag on Wilfried Zaha to ward off interest from Arsenal, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Eagles are keen to keep hold of the Ivory Coast international and have increased his asking price in an attempt to try and force a transfer.

The same story says that Palace are keen to keep hold of Zaha after having sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United over the weekend.

According to the same article, Palace are aware that Arsenal have a limited transfer budget this summer, and they are hoping that their £100m asking price will prevent the Gunners from going after the striker.

The story says that Crystal Palace do not want to lose another one of their star players following Wan-Bissaka’s exit over the weekend.

Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer, but the Gunners are understood to be working with a limited transfer budget during the current window.

The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term and missed out on Champions League qualification after they lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final.
