CRYSTAL PALACE have no interest in taking any Arsenal player as part of any deal for Wilfried Zaha.
The Gunners are currently miles adrift of the Eagles’ £80million valuation of the 26-year-old Ivorian star.
But with Arsenal having just £45m to play with, they are thought to be mulling over a player-plus-cash deal for Zaha.
In fact, they’re said to have offered THREE players – Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson – to sweeten the deal.
Unai Emery’s side have seen a bid of £40m rejected by Crystal Palace already.
Having failed to sell any of their big-money stars, such as Mesut Ozil or Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Arsenal are struggling to find a way to sign their No1 target.
WHERE THERE’S A WIL…
According to Sky Sports, Crystal Palace have absolutely no interest in taking any Gunners players to help them out.
Zaha is a boyhood Arsenal fan and is thought to be leaning towards moving – should the Eagles allow.
The flying winger’s brother, Judicael, revealed the news of his Gunners fandom, saying: “Wilfried will always hold Crystal Palace and their fans in the highest regard and all the support they have given means the world to him.
“It’s my brother’s dream though is to play for Arsenal.
“Given all that Wilfried has given to Crystal Palace to help them remain a Premier League club, I hope Palace will be able to see their way to agreeing a deal with Arsenal that allows Wilfried to realise his dream of playing European football for the club he’s supported since childhood.”
And it would appear Zaha has got his wish of leaving Selhurst Park either way – after he was left out of the club’s away kit launch photoshoot.
The photoshoot is believed to have taken place recently, with Zaha away on international duty with Ivory Coast.
