Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has said that he is fully focussing on the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) when asked about Arsenal move.

The Ivorian has been linked with a move to Gunners, but the Eagles are demanding exorbitant money - wanting £80 million for the attacker.

If Arsenal wants to do business with Crystal Palace over Cote D'Ivoire forward Wilfried Zaha, the Eagles think they have a amusing way of showing it.

Wilfried Zaha refused to rule out a move to Arsenal when pressed over the potential transfer.

And do Arsenal really need Zaha when they have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, an outstanding striker when he decides to play.

The France worldwide told FourFourTwo: "A club like Arsenal has to be playing in the Champions League every season". We'll see in the future'.

Arsenal's ambitions have gone down in recent years, has it come to this- signing a 26 year old player who has proven experience but not proven goals?

It appears Unai Emery is now on the verge of wrapping-up his second signing of the summer as French outlet TF1 claim Saliba will join Arsenal for £27m with the two clubs putting the finishing touches on the deal.

Arsenal lost 4-1 to bitter rivals Chelsea FC in the Europa League final last season as Emery failed to win the competition for a fourth time.
