The camp of Wilfried Zaha reportedly have doubts over whether Arsenal can sign the Crystal Palace winger during the summer window.
The Gunners have allegedly made the Ivory Coast international their number-one target, despite widespread claims regarding a limited transfer budget.
Arsenal are said to be ready to up their efforts to sign the 26-year-old, potentially by including at least one player in part-exchange.
However, according to Sky Sports News, those closest to Zaha do not expect to see him in an Arsenal shirt at the start of the new Premier League campaign.
The North London outfit have already made an offer in the region of £40m, half of the price tag which has been placed on the player.
