Premier League giants Manchester United are closing in on their second signing of this summer following the news that Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka could undergo his medical at the club in the coming days.
According to Football Insider, Manchester United are keen to speed up the deal before they jet out for their preseason at Australia.
It was revealed that a medical for the young right-back could take place this week after Manchester United made a breakthrough in transfer talks.
Earlier reports had claimed that Manchester United have agreed on an initial fee of £42.5m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after weeks of negotiations between the Red Devils and Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils had earlier made two bids for the 21-year-old right-back before the third offer of £42.5m upfront was accepted by the South London club.
Manchester United have already made one signing after Daniel James joined the club from English Championship side Swansea City earlier this summer and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is on course to become the second signing of the summer.
Welsh international Daniel James signed for Manchester United in a deal reported to be around £18m.
The 21-year-old has been rewarded for a superb form for Welsh side Swansea City during the just concluded league campaign.
Crystal Palace Want Carl Jenkinson As Replacement For Aaron Wan-Bissaka
South London giants Crystal Palace are reportedly plotting a move for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson this summer.
According to the Daily Star, Crystal Palace want to sign the Arsenal right-back as a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
England junior international Wan-Bissaka made his breakthrough at Crystal Palace last season.
He made 35 appearances in the Premier League and the young defender was one of the best right-sided defenders in the top flight of English football.
His form for Crystal Palace earned the player a big money move to Manchester United this summer.
The Red Devils signed the 21-year-old in a £50m deal to make him the second summer signing at Old Trafford after Welsh international Daniel James.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the fifth most expensive player in the history of the club.
Only the quartet of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Angel Di Maria and Fred have been involved in more expensive transfers.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has already made his debut for Manchester United during the preseason tour of Australia.
He could be replaced at Crystal Palace by Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson who has just one year left on his contract with the Gunners.
The lifelong Arsenal supporter has been transfer-listed by Gunners boss Unai Emery.
Arsenal Target Demands Exit
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has told the club that he wants to leave the club this summer.
This is according to Sky Sports which claimed that the Eagles player wants to leave Selhurst Park when he returns from holiday.
Wilfried Zaha is presently on holiday after the rigors of a long and hard season for Crystal Palace.
The 26-year-old also represented the Ivorian national team this summer.
He was a key player for Ivory Coast who crashed out at the quarterfinal stage of the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.
Zaha wants to leave Crystal Palace this summer and he has already told senior club officials about his intentions.
His first choice is Arsenal whom he supported as a kid but the player still wants to move if he doesn’t get his dream transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners were rebuffed after they made a £40m bid for Zaha with Crystal Palace holding out for double of that amount.
Crystal Palace want £80m for Wilfried Zaha who signed a new contract at the club last summer.
In the last Premier League campaign, the Ivorian national team player scored ten goals and also added five assists.
Palace Reject Arsenal Swap Deal For Star Player
Premier League giants Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their quest to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this summer.
This is as a result of the latest Arsenal bid turned down by the South London club.
The Gunners’ latest bid of £40m plus three players was rejected by Crystal Palace who want straight cash of £80m.
The three players offered by Arsenal were Carl Jenkinson, Mohamed ElNeny and Calum Chambers.
The Arsenal bid of cash plus multiple players was revealed via the publication from the Daily Mail.

It was the second offer from Arsenal for Ivorian international star Zaha.
The Gunners had earlier made a first offer of £40m for the Crystal Palace winger.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is desperate to add a winger to his squad ahead of the new season billed to start in August.
Zaha is his top transfer target for that role but Crystal Palace have frustrated Unai Emery and Arsenal who have just £45m to spend on players this summer.
The Crystal Palace winger had his best season at Selhurst Park after he scored 10 goals in addition to five assists in the Premier League.
Arsenal have made just one signing this summer.
Palace Identify Chelsea Player As Replacement For Wan-Bissaka
Premier League club Crystal Palace are reportedly eyeing a summer move for highly rated Chelsea defender Reece James.
According to The Sun, Crystal Palace see the Chelsea youngster as the candidate to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has gone to Manchester United.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka became the second summer signing for Manchester United at the end of last month on the back of his breakthrough season for the Eagles.
The 21-year-old was rewarded with a big money move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils signed him in a deal said to be around £50m.
Crystal Palace want Reece James to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka at Selhurst Park but it is yet to be seen if Chelsea would be willing to let one of their best youngsters leave the club.
Chelsea have a transfer ban to worry about at the moment pending the hearing from the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
The Blues are most likely to hold on to Reece James until the two-window transfer ban handed out to them by FIFA has been sorted out.
Reece James, 19, had a successful loan spell at English Championship club Wigan Athletic last season and he ended up bagging the Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and the Goal of the Season Awards.
£80m Rated Star Requests AFCON Exit To Finalize Arsenal Transfer
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has reportedly asked to leave the Ivory Coast camp at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt for him to sort out his future at club level.
According to local media outlet AbidjanShow, Zaha wants to leave the tournament to finalize his much publicized move to Arsenal though Crystal Palace are still digging their heels with the club reluctant to sell the former Manchester United player.
Zaha and Ivory Coast have already qualified for the first knockout stage of the aforementioned AFCON tournament.
The Ivorian player came through the ranks at Crystal Palace and went on to make his debut for the first team at Selhurst Park.
His form secured a big money move to Manchester United for him in January 2013 only for him to experience an unsuccessful spell at the club.
Zaha was restricted to just four first team appearances at Manchester United before returning to Crystal Palace.
He has another opportunity to seal a move to one of the big boys again with Arsenal keen to sign him.
The Gunners have made an opening offer of £40m for Zaha but it’s a long way from the £80m asking price on the part of Crystal Palace.
Why Arsenal Could Still Sign Wilfried Zaha This Summer
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has responded to the serious transfer rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners want to sign Zaha this summer in their quest to add a winger to their playing squad between now and the rest of the season.
The man at the centre of the numerous transfer links to Arsenal, Zaha, is presently at the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt and he spoke to On Sports about the interest from the Gunners.
When asked about the much publicised Arsenal bid, Zaha didn’t say much before adding that we’ll see what the future holds.

- Arsenal Set To Make An Offer For Wilfried Zaha
The Gunners made an opening bid of £40m despite the fact that the North London giants have a £45m transfer budget to work with it this summer.
Wilfried Zaha has already told the club to negotiate his transfer with Arsenal but the Eagles are holding out for at least £80m which is two times the first offer made by the Gunners.
The Ivorian international is presently with his country in Egypt as they try to win a third AFCON title.
Zaha mentioned that his focus is solely on winning the ongoing AFCON despite the fuss on his Crystal Palace future at the moment.
Why Arsenal Will Consider Ryan Fraser Options For Wilfried Zaha
Europa League finalists Arsenal will most likely consider alternative options for top transfer target Wilfried Zaha according to the report from The Boot Room.
Ivorian international star Zaha plays his club football for South London club Crystal Palace.
Arsenal want to sign Zaha this summer but they have so far been rebuffed by Crystal Palace who are reluctant to lose their best player.
The Gunners made an opening offer of £40m for Wilfried Zaha only for it to be rejected by Crystal Palace who are holding out for £80m.
Wilfried Zaha scored 10 goals and also provided five assists for Crystal Palace last season in what turned out to be his most productive Premier League campaign.
He signed a new contract at Selhurst Park last summer to make him the highest earner in the history of the club at £130,000 on a weekly basis.
Arsenal need a winger like Zaha this summer and they might have to look elsewhere for other options if Crystal Palace fail to lower their asking price.
The Gunners have £45m transfer budget and they could offer players to Crystal Palace in a possible swap deal to get Zaha.
Arsenal will have to look at cheaper targets like Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) and Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco if Crystal Palace maintain their stance on Zaha.
Zaha Prefers Arsenal Move Ahead Of Man Utd
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha prefers a move to North London giants Arsenal ahead of a possible return to Manchester United.
This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media channel ESPN.
It was revealed that Zaha wants to stay in London rather than move to Manchester this summer.
Manchester United had earlier signed Zaha from Crystal Palace in 2013 for a fee believed to be around £15m, but the player didn’t enjoy the best of experiences at the Theatre of Dreams.
Zaha joined Manchester United in the summer of 2013 though his transfer was confirmed in January.
The Crystal Palace attacker was the last signing of the managerial era of club legend Sir Alex Ferguson.
The former Aberdeen manager won 11 Premier League titles to secure his status as a Manchester United legend.
Sir Alex Ferguson also won two Champions League titles as the Manchester United manager.
Zaha returned to Crystal Palace from Manchester United in 2015 in a £6m deal.
Since his return to the club, Zaha has established himself as the key player at Selhurst Park but he believes this summer is the right time for him to leave the club for a Champions League playing team.
Arsenal have already had a £40m bid rejected for him by Crystal Palace.
