Arsenal remain in the hunt for Wilfried Zaha but Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has warned the north Londoners they have not come “anywhere near” meeting his valuation.
The Gunners are believed to have submitted a £40m bid for the winger which was promptly rejected by the Eagles, who believe he is worth double that fee.
Meanwhile, Unai Emery remains confident of beating Spurs to St Etienne’s William Saliba in a £27m deal – but the young defender would be loaned back to France for a year.
Elsewhere in the top flight, Brendan Rodgers has fired a warning to Manchester United and Manchester City over Harry Maguire, saying the clock is ticking rapidly on any potential transfer.
Leicester City are believed to have already rejected two bids from United for England defender Maguire – one of £75m and one closer to £80m while City are admirers of the England defender but are wary of paying over the odds.
And while United are in the hunt for new players, they’re also fighting to keep hold of Paul Pogba who is being chased by real Madrid and Juventus this summer.
