The arsenal has "no chance" of signing Wilfried Zaha this summer, according to the former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison.

The ace of the Palace was heavily associated with a move from Selhurst Park this summer, after affirming its desire to play European football towards the end of last season.

He has since been linked with the Arsenal, with Zaha's brother describing a move to the Emirates Stadium as a "dream" switch for the Ivory Coast International, adding that he supported the Gunners when I was a boy.

However, Morrison says that with the Arsenal having a tight budget after missing the Champions League next season, he can't see Zaha joining the Gunners this summer.

Speaking to Talksport, Morrison said: "Which football team comes out and says they have only 45 million pounds to spend?

"In this day and age, £ 45 million won't give you much. If they sign (Kieran) Tierney, Celtic's left-back, but that deal should have been completed a long time ago, I don't know why it takes so long. , maybe they're trying to bargain.

"And then you got Wilfried Zaha, well, now I can guarantee that, knowing President Steve Parish, Wilfried Zaha will not go to Arsenal for that. This would not even buy his left foot!

"There is no chance, and I can not see the Arsenal involve a lot of players this year. I think it will be a fight, I think they will fight".

The future of Wilfried Zaha

The Arsenal received an offer of 40 million pounds for Zaha inadvertently rejected by Palace at the start of this summer, although it has been suggested that the Gunners could offer a number of marginal players to the Eagles as part of any agreement.

However, with Palace not under pressure to sell, and having already sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United during the summer transfer window, the Eagles are reluctant to part with their star-man.
