The Gunners have made a £40million approach to sign the Crystal Palace winger but the opening bid has been rejected by the south London club.
Palace are looking for £80million for their prized asset, but this figure prices the cash-strapped Gunners out of a deal for the former Manchester United forward.
Zaha, 26, is currently in action at the AFCON, and spoke to the media after his Ivory Coast side’s 4-1 victory over Namibia.
When asked about Arsenal‘s interest in him, after they made a £40million bid for his services, he replied: “I don’t know we’ll see in the future.”
The winger added: “I have no comment on it, the only thing that’s on my mind now is trying to win this cup. I’m fixated on is how far we go in the tournament.”
