Arsenal try new swap offer for Crystal Palace attacker Zaha

Arsenal have made a new offer for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

The Independent says Arsenal offered Palace £50million plus £10million in add-ons and Riess Nelson on loan for a season for Zaha.

But the south London club rejected the deal outright, as they are looking for a transfer fee of around £80million for the winger and want more cash up front.

The Gunners have made Zaha their top target this summer but Unai Emery has a real struggle on his hands trying to get the transfer over the line.

Arsenal do not have the same financial muscle as their top six rivals, and will get priced out of a move for Zaha unless they can convince Palace to accept less money up front.
