Sam Allardyce urges Arsenal to splash the cash to sign Wilfried Zaha

Former Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has said that Arsenal should splash a club-record fee and sign Wilfried Zaha this summer. The Gunners have held a keen interest in landing the Ivory Coast international but so far, they have failed with an opening bid of around £40m for the former Manchester United man.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Allardyce indicated that the current market situation has meant that clubs must spend more than usual on top talents. He added that Zaha will definitely be a success with the Gunners and the side should meet the Eagles £80m price tag, considering Manchester United could be prepared to pay something similar for defender Harry Maguire, who has lesser Premier League experience.
