Arsenal determined to beat Man Utd for Palace sensation Williams

Arsenal are preparing a £10 million bid for Crystal Palace midfielder Jonathan Williams. The People says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to win the race for the gifted midfielder in the summer - whether he helps the Eagles to reach the Premier League or not.

Williams has pushed his way into the Palace side this season and also made a major ­impression for Wales in the World Cup ­qualifiers.

The Gunners boss is determined to get the 19-year-old after losing out to Manchester United in the race for his team-mate Wilfried Zaha. United are also keen on Williams.

But Palace will be desperate to hang on to him if they go up. There is no love lost ­between Wenger and Palace boss Ian Holloway over the Zaha ­transfer saga and the Arsenal chief will not ­worry about stepping on the Palace boss's toes to get what he wants.

 Whose the better prospect? Williams or Zaha? Give us your shout below...
