Arsenal are unlikely to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer because Crystal Palace are determined not to sell the Ivorian winger to their London rivals, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Palace board are livid about Arsenal’s attempts to unsettle the Ivory Coast international in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Arsenal’s opening bid of £40m has been swiftly rejected by the Eagles but the Gunners are being tipped to return with a better offer.

According to the same story, Palace are very unhappy with Arsenal’s approach to the transfer and the Selhurt Park outfit aren’t prepared to do a deal with the Gunners.

The Daily Mirror go on to add that Palace aren’t under any financial pressure to sell Zaha following Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s switch to Manchester United last week.

The report states that Arsenal could include Carl Jenkinson, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Shkodran Mustafi or Alex Iwobi as part exchange for Zaha this summer.

Arsenal lost 4-1 to bitter rivals Chelsea FC in the Europa League final last term to miss out on the chance to play in the Champions League next season.

The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table behind Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur.
