Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha would prefer a move to Arsenal over Manchester United during this transfer window, a source has told ESPN FC.
Zaha, 26, has expressed his desire to leave Palace this summer in search of European football next season.
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.
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.
