Arsenal ‘offer three players to Crystal Palace in Zaha deal’

Carl Jenkinson, Calum Chambers and Mohamed Elneny will all be offered to Crystal Palace by Arsenal in the hope it will act a sweetener in a deal for Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha recently expressed his desire to move on from Selhurst Park, and Arsenal are thought to be his first choice as he grew up a supporter of the club.

However, Palace have set an asking price of an eyewatering £80m for the 26-year-old winger.

This poses a problem as Arsenal are thought to have a transfer budget of just £45m this summer, and a £40m bid was quickly turned down by Palace.

However, manager Unai Emery is willing to let one of the aforementioned players leave Arsenal if it helps move the transfer of Zaha along.

Jenkinson may be of particular interest to Palace as they are searching for a replacement at right-back for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who joined Manchester United in a £50m deal earlier this week.

But even with one of the players included it looks highly likely that the Gunners will be some way off Palace’s valuation of Zaha.
