Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman believes the Gunners don’t need to sign Wilfried Zaha, after the club had a £40 million offer rejected by Crystal Palace.

Unai Emery is keen to bring the Ivory Coast international to the Emirates, with Zaha wanting to move to the club he supported as a child.

Palace turned down Arsenal's initial offer, one which is believed to have angered the club and left the deal hanging in the balance.

Seaman would rather see Arsenal spend the money elsewhere, exclusively telling the Islington Gazette: "The thing is, if we get Zaha what happens then?

"I don't feel we need Zaha at the moment, it's not a position we need to strengthen.
