Arsenal should not spend their entire summer transfer budget on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, says former Gunners midfielder Ray Parlour.
Sky Sports News understands Arsenal have launched a £40m bid for the Ivory Coast international, with his brother Judicael revealing that it is Zaha's "dream" to sign for the Gunners.
Speaking at the launch of the club's home kit for the 2019/20 season, Parlour warned his former club against putting all their resources behind signing Zaha, despite his quality.
"He would be a good signing but it all depends on how much he is going to go for," he told Sky Sports News.
"It's reportedly [going to cost as much as] £100m - which is a lot of money. It's a lot of money to splash out on one player.
"You might look at other players and other [defensive] positions that need strengthening as well.
"Depending on the budget we have to wait and see what happens but he is certainly a very good player with a lot of quality."
