Wilfried Zaha became one of the main interest of the media prior to the summer transfer market news. The main reason is because of the interest of Arsenal, and the rejection of his club owner, Crystal Palace who’s refuse Arsenal’s offer.
The recent news claims that Crystal Palace will reject The Gunners opening offer for Wilfried Zaha. The Eagles have made it clear that their attacker valued closer to 80 million pounds.
But on the other hands, Unai Emery is known to be a big fan of Wilfried Zaha, and in fact, Arsenal has lodged their first offer for the attacker on Monday. Their offer is believed to be around 40 million pounds, but that amount falls well short of Crystal Palace’s valuation, therefore The Gunners bid will be turned down. Furthermore, Crystal Palace has already sold Aaron Wan Bissaka to Manchester United, hence, they are keen on preserving Wilfried Zaha and unwilling to offload the player in the same window unless their asking price is met.
But on the other hand, Arsenal budget known to be only around 45 million pounds and it is believed that the Gunners need Crystal Palace to dramatically lower their price tag.
Arsenal Was Zaha’s Dream Club
Furthermore, online gambling website also heard that there are also reports that claims the talks about Wilfried Zaha become even more complicated with the fact that Manchester United will be due a portion of the Wilfried Zaha’s transfer after inserting a sell-on clause into the deal that saw the player join Crystal Palace in 2015.
Wilfried Zaha is believed to have told Crystal Palace he wants to join Arsenal. But the five-year contract he signed last summer has no release clause. After news about Arsenal’s offer broke in the media, the player’s brother, Judicael urged Crystal Palace to lower their demands. In an occasion, he stated that his brother will always hold Crystal Palace and their fans in the highest regard and all the support they have given means the world to him. But he admitted playing for Arsenal is his brother dream since forever. Therefore he hopes Crystal Palace will be able to see their way to agree on a deal with The Gunners that allows Wilfried Zaha to realize his dream of plays with the club he’s supported since his childhood.
