Arsenal agree £40m to sign Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha

Arsenal are reportedly in a two-way battle with rivals Tottenham for the signing of Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha.

The Sun claims that Zaha is valued at £80 million, which could be a problem for the Gunners as the club are running on a limited transfer budget. Daily Sun reports that Arsenal are keen on the trickster but only want to pay £40m for his services.

Zaha is considered as one of the best forwards outside the top six and has been the talisman for the Eagles since his return from Manchester United in 2015.

The 26-year-old is known for his bag of tricks and playmaking qualities from the flanks. Arsenal lacked a true winger this season with Alex Iwobi failing to impress when called upon.

Zaha would bring creativity and a genuine threat to the forward line alongside Lacazzette and Aubameyang.

One advantage that Tottenham currently have is that the Ivorian international is said to prefer a move to a club in the Champions League.

Arsenal have a good opportunity to make the Champions League as they face rivals Chelsea in the Europa League final.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is set to be given £45 million as transfer budget if the club does not qualify for the Champions League.

Zaha was impressive for Crystal Palace, as he netted 10 goals and provided 5 assists in the Premier League.
