Wilfried Zaha is on Tottenham’s radar, according to Sky Sports.
Yes, there is another name to add to the list of players who have been linked to Spurs in the past recent weeks, maybe even days! Crystal Palace winger, Wilfried Zaha, has been the new focus for Daniel Levy. The 23-year-old has played 67 games for Palace in the English Premier League, scoring six goals and assisting seven. Not the best record for a winger you would link to the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, who depend on their midfielders to contribute with a variety of goals and assists to help out their talisman Harry Kane.
The fee for Zaha is reportedly around £15M, with The Guardian publishing a report that Crystal Palace has rejected the supposed bid made by Levy and the club. It is an interesting one as it would be surprising for Palace to sell another marquee player (after the departure of Yannick Bolasie to Everton for £30M), especially to a ‘London rival’ for a fee that could be deemed reasonable low. With the fairly inflated market currently, you would expect to see Palace demand a substantial amount more than the current offer, in which you would expect Levy to completely ignore or refuse to pay
However, even if Levy is to pay the fee Palace deem fit to sell Zaha for, you would have to question the point and ambition of the deal. The first question you would ask is whether Zaha would even get into the current squad, which I think he wouldn’t. And after recent reports of being interested in Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Çalhanoğlu, you might not be able to help that sense of disappointment.
