Youngster can choose between the Emirates and Old Trafford next month.
Arsenal and Manchester United are set to battle it out for Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 20-year-old winger is one of the hottest properties in English football at present and will reportedly have his pick of the two clubs in January.
Both the Red Devils and the Gunners are in need of a new right-winger, with Nani set to leave Old Trafford next summer and Theo Walcott’s future at Arsenal increasingly uncertain, as contract talks stagnate.
Zaha has emerged as one of the most promising young talents outside the Premier League in the past year and the youngster made his debut for England last month.
Palace boss Ian Holloway has insisted that the starlet will not be sold when the transfer window reopens but, realistically, the South London outfit will find it hard to keep hold of Zaha, with both Arsenal and United ready to offer around £12m to seal the deal.
Zaha has scored just 4 goals in 21 appearances in the Championship but has been Palace’s most creative player in a patch of fine form that has seen the Selhurst Park side rise to 3rd in the table under Holloway’s guidance.
