Manchester City have reportedly made their 15 million pound move for Crystal Palace sensation Wilfried Zaha.

The Premier League champions are offering 12 million pounds up front, plus another three million pounds in add-ons for the England new-boy, and will be having him to remain on loan at Selhurst Park until the summer.

City are determined to beat a host of other sides to land the prized signature of Zaha, who made his international debut against Sweden a week ago, in January, The Sun reports.

According to the paper, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are also in the hunt for the Ivory Coast-born player.

The total cost of Zaha's transfer could be 15 million pounds but boss Roberto Mancini believes the player should be able to complete the season with the Championship promotion-chasers, the paper said.

Palace have, meanwhile, made it clear they are not in a hurry to sell and want to keep the player as they bid to reach the top flight, the paper added. (ANI)
