A source has told ESPN FC that Arsenal have submitted a £40 million bid plus add-ons but Palace value Zaha at £70m.

The source added that Zaha would favour a summer move to his boyhood club Arsenal than a return to United because he wants to remain in London for family reasons.

Zaha endured a difficult spell at Old Trafford during the 2013-14 campaign before returning to Crystal Palace where he signed a new five-year contract last year.

United have already completed business with Palace this summer after signing full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka on a five-year deal.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes and Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff as he looks to bolster his midfield options.

Zaha is currently on international duty with the Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations where he scored in the 4-1 victory over Namibia on Monday.
