Arsenal on Monday bid £40million for Crystal Palace winger, Wilfried Zaha, Sky Sports News reports.

Zaha has informed the club of his desire and urged them to reach an agreement with the Gunners who he supported as a boy.

Palace have already struck a deal worth over £50million with Manchester United for the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

And the South London side already insisted that only one of their academy products would be allowed to leave.

But Zaha remains determined to secure his own big-money switch from Selhurst Park too.

Palace have put a huge £80m price tag on the 26-year-old, which would put him out of Arsenal’s price range. The Gunners have a starting budget of around £45m, following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

That has left Zaha hoping that Palace chairman, Steve Parish, will lower the club’s demands to make his dream switch a reality.
