Wilfried Zaha

Manchester United attack appeared to have returned to top shape after scoring three goals against Partizan Belgrade during the last Europa League fixture but it remains to be seen if they can keep the tempo against Astana

Whether they maintain their newfound attacking prowess or not, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to add one or two attackers to his squad in January and he is being linked with Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha.

Zaha, 26, joined the Red Devils in 2013 under Alex Ferguson but he had a forgettable spell at Old Trafford as he couldn’t force his way into Louis Van Gaal’s side.

The Ivorian eventually returned back to the Selhurst Park Stadium where he has become one of the best wingers in the country’s top-flight league.

The Red Devils are reportedly set to have the player at Old Trafford for the second time but they will need to release at least £70m for his services next summer.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are also set to reignite interest in the former England youth international when the next summer window opens.

The Gunners were heavily linked with zaha’s services prior to the start of the campaign but the Eagles successfully blocked every deal — including Everton’s offer — from materializing despite Zaha’s obvious desire to join the Gunners.
