Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson claims that Arsenal have failed to “come anywhere near” the club’s valuation of Wilfried Zaha.
The Gunners have reportedly made Zaha one of their key targets for the summer transfer window but they look to be miles apart on their valuations of the player.
The Daily Mirror reported last Thursday that the Gunners ‘are refusing to give up on’ Zaha and are contemplating offering up to three players in part-exchange in their next offer, after their first bid invited fury at Selhurst Park.
The report added that Arsenal ‘will get nowhere near’ the £80m Palace are demanding for the winger and now Hodgson has confirmed that the Gunners are a long way off.
“I don’t think Arsenal have actually made a bid that has come anywhere near our valuation,” Hodgson told Sky Sports.
“I’m sure the player realises that if someone’s going to take him away from us, he’ll expect clubs to pay the market value. Until someone does that, there’s not much to discuss regarding Wilf.”
