Cost of Arsenal’s maximum Wilfried Zaha bid revealed

Wilfried Zaha

The Gunners failed with an opening £40 million offer for the Ivory Coast international on Monday but have persisted with their interest.

Sky Sports News believes that Palace value the 26-year-old at £80 million and are resistant to sell after allowing Aaron Wan-Bissaka to join Manchester United in a £50 million deal this summer.

Reporter Kaveh Solhekol has claimed that an improved bid is yet to be made but the Gunners intend to submit a new offer.

Zaha scored 10 Premier League goals in 34 Premier League appearances for the Eagles last season.
