Wilfried Zaha has once again informed Crystal Palace that he wants to leave the club this summer.

Arsenal failed miserably with a £45m for the winger who recently returned to London following Ivory Coast’s quarter-final exit.

Unfortunately, with Unai Emery strapped for cash this summer, it is not likely that Arsenal can stump up the £80m price-tag Palace have placed on Zaha.

And Arsenal’s transfer budget is depleted already with Gabriel Martinelli so far the only purchase for £6m.

Zaha, who has issued a transfer plea is scheduled to soon re-join the Eagles for pre-season training.

He scored 10 and assisted 5 in the Premier League last season, including scoring in Palace’s 3-2 win over Arsenal at the Emirates in April – a game in which he is said to have caught Emery’s eye and become his top target.

As a youngster in 2013, he left Palace for Manchester United, but failed to crack the first team and subsequently returned to Selhurst Park.
