Crystal Palace fans on Twitter want Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson to be part of any potential exchange deal that could see Wilfried Zaha move to the Emirates.
According to the BBC, the north London outfit want the Ivory Coast international and he wants to make the move to the Emirates to link up with Unai Emery, but money is a big issue.
The Gunners’ summer transfer budget is reported to be set at £45m, while the Eagles want up to £80m for their prized asset, although the BBC report they are reluctant to sell this summer having already seen Aaron Wan-Bissaka depart for Manchester United.

Something has got to give then, and The Sun reported last month that Arsenal could offer their capital rivals Calum Chambers, Carl Jenkinson or Reiss Nelson as part of a cash-plus-player deal – the Daily Star also reported on Saturday that a player could possibly be used as a makeweight.
Palace supporters on social media have been discussing potential deals they would be willing to accept, and a name that kept cropping up again and again was that of Nelson.
Are Crystal Palace right to slap a £100m valuation on Wilfried Zaha’s head? Check out the video below to see why they are…
The versatile 19-year-old winger hit eight goals in 31 appearances on loan at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last term, impressing as a result.
Of course, Roy Hodgson would likely be looking for a winger should Zaha go, and getting one in return would sort that issue – in the short term at least.
Eagles fans seem to agree, with one individual saying “I’d take £60m and Nelson”, while another said “£60m + Reiss Nelson might do the trick”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
£60m + Reiss Nelson might do the trick offering up a bang average player we don’t want or need don’t mean we give our most prized asset away. He may of said during an interview he was Arsenal as a kid but I’ve never seen in 40 odd years a player play with more passion for @CPFC

I would take 60 million, Riess Nelson and Nkeitiah from arsenal for Zaha. I thinks that a great deal.

I’d take £60m and Nelson ?

Hmm you’re right they’d have to offer us players to lower the price. I’d take £45m + Nelson & Bielik.

chambers + nelson + 45 for zaha

I’d only want Nelson, with a buyout that’s not ridiculously low. Chambers rejected us, so I wouldn’t go near him.

Arsenal have a budget of £45m so it’s unlikely to be true at all and I really don’t want to see Wilf leave, however should they offer us that £45m as well as Chambers and Nelson I would see that as a good offer to consider. Anyone have thoughts on that? https://t.co/4QMrYs5zL1

Nelson+Niles would be a better deal imo
