DESPERATE Arsenal are offering THREE players plus cash to lure Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.
The Gunners have already failed with an opening bid of £40million.
But now they will throw in Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson into the deal.
Arsenal value the fringe players at £40m, which would effectively double their offer for Palace’s Ivory Coast star, 26.
And they will point out that deal would reduce Manchester United’s cut of the Zaha cash.
Palace paid just £6m when they bought him back in 2015 but agreed a sell-on clause which entitles United to 25 per cent of any future profit.
Zaha wants to join Arsenal, the club he supported as a boy.
But he has not submitted a formal transfer request and still has four years left on the £130,000-a-week contract he signed last August.
Zaha's Ivory Coast face Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals on Thursday.
