Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has appeared to address the rumours surrounding his future at the club with a cryptic post on his Instagram page.

The Ivory Coast international is believed to be keen on a move to Arsenal but the Gunners £40m valuation of the forward is considerably short of Palaces £80m asking price.

Zaha signalled his intention to leave the Eagles at the end of last season in order to play in the Champions League but hes willing to compromise with a move to Arsenal as he was a boyhood Gunner.

However, Unai Emery has been handed just £45m to spend this summer and Arsenals move for Zaha looks dead in the water unless they can offload a prised asset to raise funds.

Zaha therefore looks destined to be denied his move to north London and the forwards cryptically suggested his chances are over in his latest social media post.

Arsenal have not given up hope of signing the former Manchester United winger but their attempts to compensate for a smaller transfer fee by offering a string of players in exchange to Palace was rejected out of hand.

The Gunners were willing to part with Carl Jenksinon, Mohamed Elneny and Calum Chambers as well as paying a fee roughly in the region of £40m but Palace were not interested.

The Eagles raised £55m by selling Aaron Wan-Bissaka to United and are under no financial pressure to sell Zaha.
