Bwin have eased the odds of Wilfried Zaha joining Arsenal as fears grow that the winger will be priced out of a move to Emirates Stadium by Crystal Palace.
Reports suggest the Gunners have offered £40million plus three potential players for the 26-year-old, but the Eagles would prefer a straight cash deal for double that amount.
Palace are under no pressure to sell, having already picked up £50million for Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United, especially as Zaha still has four years left on his current contract.
The latest Arsenal transfer news is that they are ready to start looking at alternatives and it is now 3/5 for Zaha to switch to his boyhood club this summer.
Arsenal have only brought in young Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli so far, although former midfielder Edu has returned as the club’s first technical director.
A statement said: “Edu will coordinate the work of our first-team coaching group, the academy and player scouting and recruitment in order to oversee the constant building up and efficient strengthening of our squad.”
It is believed that a deal for Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba is close to completion.
The 18-year-old Frenchman is expected to be loaned back to the Ligue 1 side for next season after signing for a reported £27million and is seen as a long-term prospect.
Meunier move anticipated
As for more established signings, the latest Arsenal transfer odds have PSG and Belgium full-back Thomas Meunier at 5/4 to join the Gunners.
The 27-year-old moved to the French outfit soon after Unai Emery and has picked up a couple of Ligue 1 titles.
However, he has failed to establish himself as an automatic starter and is tipped to move on before his contract expires next summer.
As for possible outgoings, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Evens to make a surprise switch to Manchester United following speculation over stalled contract talks.
Meanwhile, Fenerbahce have distanced themselves from a move for Mesut Ozil and insist they cannot afford to sign the Germany international.
A statement from the Turkish club read: “Under the current economic conditions, such a step is not possible for both parties.”
