Wilfried Zaha would prefer a move to Arsenal ahead of Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

Website ESPN, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Arsenal have already failed with a £40m offer for the Ivory Coast winger in the current transfer window.

The same article states that the Crystal Palace forward is eager to remain in the English capital due to family reasons rather than return to Manchester.

According to the same story, Zaha isn’t interested in a potential move to Manchester United despite his former team-mate Aaron Wan-Bissaka completing a £50m switch to Old Trafford at the weekend.

ESPN go on to report that Manchester United are set to collect 25 per cent of Zaha’s potential transfer fee after the Ivorian returned to Palace from the Red Devils in 2015.

The former England Under-21 international struggled to make an impression at Manchester United under David Moyes before he secured his move back to Selhurst Park.

The story adds that Arsenal will need Palace to drop their £80m asking price significantly if they’re going to be able to sign Zaha before the start of the new season.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since the 2003-04 season, when Arsene Wenger’s side finished the campaign unbeaten.
