Crystal Palace set new asking price for Arsenal to sign Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace are determined not to lose Wilfried Zaha this summer and have slapped a £100million price tag on his head as he continues to be linked with Arsenal. Since returning to Selhurst Park in 2015 following a dismal spell at Manchester United, Zaha has re-established himself as Palace’s key player and one of the stars of the Premier League.

 The Ivory Coast international has decided now is the time to move on, however, and is said to have pleaded with Palace to agree terms with Arsenal over a summer transfer. Zaha supported the Gunners as a child and wants to play under Unai Emery despite the face Arsenal will not compete in the Champions League next season after finishing fifth in the top-flight.

Palace are reluctant to lose another star player following the departure of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United, however, and have slapped a £100m price tag on Zaha. The Daily Mail say the Eagles are concerned about the backlack from manager Roy Hodgson and Palace fans if they sell their two star players during this summer transfer window.

 They now hope the £100m valuation will price Arsenal out of a move, with the Gunners only said to have around £45m to spend after missing out on Champions League qualification. Palace are now searching for a replacement for Wan-Bissaka and are said to be interested in signing Timothy Castagne from Atalanta.

After his move to Old Trafford was confirmed on Saturday, Wan-Bissaka sent a message to Crystal Palace and the club’s fans. ‘I can’t thank everyone at Crystal Palace enough,’ he tweeted. ‘I’ve been at the club for 11 years and grown up there so I will never forget my roots and the support I’ve had from fans, players, staff. ‘Thank you to everyone.’
