Arsenal transfer news: Crystal Palace prefer Wilfried Zaha joined Liverpool or Man City


Arsenal are said to be Zaha’s preferred destination if he was to leave Crystal Palace this summer.

The Gunners had a £40million bid rejected for the Ivory Coast international at the beginning of July.

However, Palace want at least double that and are under no pressure to sell after already bringing in £50m from the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is a huge fan of Zaha and has made the 26-year-old his priority target.

But Solhekol says Palace would be more willing to let Zaha go if it was to a club competing in the Champions League, like Liverpool or Manchester City.

Arsenal are set for a third season in the Europa League after missing out on Champions League qualification again last term.

“Wilfried Zaha is Unai Emery’s No 1 target ever since Emery watched him play for Palace at the Emirates Stadium when Arsenal lost 3-2 to Palace in April,” Solhekol said on the Transfer Talk podcast.

“We’ve been told that Emery is desperate to sign him.

“But of course it all comes down to making an offer that Crystal Palace are going to accept.

“I don’t think Crystal Palace are under any pressure to sell him.

“They are being very, very firm.

“They are saying ‘look, he’s our player, we would understand if he wanted to leave to go and play for a Champions League club, but Arsenal are not a Champions League club’.

“They wouldn’t stand in his way if Barcelona or Real Madrid or PSG or Manchester City or Liverpool were trying to sign him.

“But when it comes to Arsenal, they don’t feel that the attraction there is as much as it would be at a club that was in the Champions League.”
