Tottenham Hotspur are going all out to land Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and want the deal done in order to secure the 24 year old in the impending January Window.
The attacking Côte d’Ivoire midfielder is in his fourth season at Selhurst Park and it’s been far from plain sailing. In fact, that would be an accurate description of his entire career.
Zaha’s time at Palace has been dogged with injuries, here’s a summary: Knee Injury 12/08/17 12/10/17, Knock 21/05/17 30/05/17, Hamstring 22/09/16 28/09/16, Hamstring 24/04/16 19/05/16, Shoulder Injury 13/04/16 15/04/16, Ankle/Foot Injury 27/02/16 28/02/16.
Abidjan born ‘Big Wilf’ caught everyone’s eye during his first four season spell at Crystal Palace, where he was signed by Manchester United only to make just two Premier League appearances before being loaned out to Cardiff City.
It was then back to Palace.
Zaha has been linked on and off with variety of clubs over that past few seasons but the main stumbling block has always been an inflated valuation.
Gladys believes that Spurs have now struck a deal that works for both parties and both Poch and Levy want this wrapped up for the new year. Wilfried is itching to be a Lilywhite. Personal terms are agreed.
This is an opportunistic move for us, but once that sends a very bad message out the Eagles who have been flirting with relegation since the opening day of the season.
