Roy Hodgson has admitted that his star man, Wilfried Zaha may have had his head turned by claiming that people are putting things in his head, claims the Sun.
The Ivorian winger is set to leave Selhurst Park this summer after telling Crystal Palace that he wants to try his luck at a bigger team.
He has been a subject of interest for some time now and Tottenham is one of the teams that have been linked with a move for him.
Spurs have had a busy summer transfer window, but more players are expected to join them after Mourinho admitted that he expects a striker to be signed for his team.
Zaha is one of the best wingers in the Premier League, however, his poor form for Palace last season affected the team’s overall showing.
Ahead of the new season, it seems that the winger is still not in the right frame of mind as he continues to be linked with a move to Spurs, and his manager knows it.
Boss Hodgson, preparing for today’s Premier League opener against Southampton, said: “There are a lot of things being said and a lot of people putting ideas into his head.
“So it’s not the easiest thing for him to come to terms with.
“The external influences are quite great and he has to battle a few demons there.
“But I must say I’m basing my opinion on what he is doing at the moment.
“His training and the matches he has played for us, there has been no problem at all.
“He might get frustrated that we aren’t having to turn down offers every day from top clubs. Because he thinks he has that ability to play there and I think so too.
“You’d have to speak to Wilf to find out the exact state of his psyche — but I’m not concerned.”
I am not sure that Zaha is the sort of signing that we need right now but if he is available cheap enough then it would not be a huge surprise if Daniel Levy made a move for the 27-year-old.
