Manchester United are closing on Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini - but Roberto Martinez wants Wilfried Zaha on loan as part of the deal.
Martinez tried to sign Zaha during his time in charge of Wigan and has asked David Moyes if he can take the former Crystal Palace star on a temporary basis as part of the deal that takes Fellaini to Old Trafford.
According to the Mirror, Zaha moving is dependent on what business, if any, Manchester United make today, with the 11pm deadline looming large.
Moyes is reluctant to let the 20-year-old winger leave, though the player may be tempted by the lure of first-team football.
Manchester United signed Zaha for £15 million in January, but he is yet to play for the reigning champions this campaign, despite starting last month's Community Shield in pre-season.
Moyes has so far been frustrated in his attempts to bring in fresh faces ahead of tonight's transfer deadline, and will be keen to get a move for Fellaini over the line.
However, Everton's interest in Zaha could scupper a potential deal unless United improve their offer and meet the Merseyside club's demands.
