Emery to ask Arsenal to break the bank for Zaha

Arsenal manager Unai Emery will ask the club’s management to do all they can to land Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

Emery saw Arsenal's transfer budget limited to just £45million following their crushing defeat by London rivals Chelsea in the Europa League final, which has meant a third season in a row without Champions League.

The Sun reports that the Spaniard will look to force Arsenal's board to release the funds needed to sign the £55m-rated Palace winger.

Palace will play hardball with any potential suitors for the 26-year-old Ivory Coast international, who is a boyhood Arsenal supporter.

Valuation

Zaha has seen his transfer valuation rocket after becoming one of the most feared forwards in the Premier League - scoring 10 goals and creating as many assists during last season's top-flight campaign.

Emery would also have to persuade Zaha to play Europa League football next season after revealing he wanted to play in Europe's elite competition in the future.

Emery and Arsenal have also shown heavy interest in Celtic's Kieran Tierney recently but had a £15m bid rejected for the Scottish left-back.

Celtic want at least £25m for the 22-year-old, whose deal at the club doesn't expire until 2023.
