Arsenal lead Wan-Bissaka transfer race and are willing to offer £40m for Crystal Palace star


ARSENAL lead the chase for Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Gunners think the speedy and strong Wan-Bissaka, 21, would be the perfect fit for them.

Boss Unai Emery wants quick players and has found right-back to be a problem position at the Emirates.

Wan-Bissaka can tackle and also get forward — qualities Emery craves.

Arsenal would have to pay £40million or more and offer top wages but are not being deterred by that.

Everton were the first club to show an interest after Wan-Bissaka emerged as a first-team regular at Palace and they are still keen.

But staying in London may appeal to the Croydon-born prospect.

Manchester City have also been considering the young Eagle, but right-back is not a priority position for them.

Bayern Munich have been looking too, but Arsenal are front-runners.

Palace are checking on Chelsea prospect Reece James, 19, as a potential replacement. He is on loan at Wigan.
