Arsenal's reported budget is widely reported to be only £40m - or £45m depending on which source you read - and the Daily Mirror recently claimed that the Gunners have offered Carl Jenkinson, Calum Chambers and Mohamed Elneny to Palace "in the hope it will act as a sweetener" in a deal for Zaha.
Arsenal value the fringe players at £40m, which would effectively double their offer for Palace's Ivory Coast star, 26.

Arsenal have already seen a £40m offer for Zaha, who is now on worldwide duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, knocked backed.

It has been suggested that the Emirates outfit were preparing a second offer, which would include cash and players.
Earlier this month, Zaha's brother Judicael said: "Wilfried will always hold Crystal Palace and their fans in the highest regard".
Palace paid just £6m when they bought him back in 2015 but agreed a sell-on clause which entitles United to 25 per cent of any future profit.More news: Virat Kohli reacts to criticism after Indias World Cup exit
Emery has been linked with a host of different players in the summer transfer window so far but Arsenal have only completed one summer signing. Wilfried Zaha is Crystal Palace's main star and the club feels that it has every right to put any asking price for their star man since he is still has four more years on his current deal with the Eagles.
