Arsenal to include players in new offer for Crystal Palace attacker Zaha

Arsenal are prepared to include players in their offer for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

The London Evening Standard says the Gunners had an opening bid of £40million rejected by the Selhurst Park club with Palace valuing the 26-year-old at around £80m.

They are hopeful Zaha's desire to move could force down Palace's asking price but that alone is unlikely to be enough to secure an agreement.

Carl Jenkinson is available and could fill the right-back spot vacated by Aaron Wan-Bissaka's departure to Manchester United while Mohamed Elneny is also surplus to requirements.

Shkodran Mustafi is another player among several head coach Unai Emery is willing to part with but it remains to be seen whether Palace have any interest or the World Cup winner would be interested in moving to south London.
