ARSENAL are willing to exchange TWO players for Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to a report.
Wan-Bissaka has been in superb form for Crystal Palace ever since he broke into the first team last season under Roy Hodgson.
Speculation about his future has been rife in recent months, with many believing that he would suit a top six club.
And according to The Sun, Arsenal are the first club willing to make a move for the Eagles star.
Palace reportedly want £40m for their 21-year-old, however The Sun are reporting that the Gunners are willing to throw in a couple of players to sweeten the deal.
Reiss Nelson, who is on loan at Hoffenheim in Germany, is one of them.
And the other could be Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who has featured 10 times in the Premier League this season.
Arsenal are incredibly keen on Wan-Bissaka, and see him as a long-term prospect that would fit right in at the Emirates.
They do, however, have money to worry about, as it was revealed by manager Unai Emery in January that the club didn’t have the cash to spend on permanent signings.
The only signing Emery made in transfer window was Denis Suarez, who came on loan from Barcelona on deadline day.
Arsenal are in the hunt for a right-back that can add a great deal of pace to their side, but is also reliable when defending.
Other Premier League clubs have Wan-Bissaka on their shortlists but they’re not willing to go the extra mile that Arsenal are.
The Gunners are still in contention for the top four this season, which should attract Wan-Bissaka if a bid comes in for him.
They’re also still in the Europa League, having narrowly come through their last 16 tie with Rennes, winning 4-3 on aggregate.
They face a tricky tie in the quarter-final, though, as they come up against Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli.
And with two different routes of qualification for next season’s Champions League, it’s pivotal Emery guides them there one way or another.
Arsenal don’t play a game now for two weeks, however, as their game this weekend was rescheduled due to opponents Wolves’ FA Cup exploits.
