Tottenham tipped to land Premier League ace also linked with Arsenal
By Bruce Grove -

Former Crystal Palace Chairman, Simon Jordan has revealed that Wilfried Zaha might be on the move this summer and he also tipped Tottenham to sign him.

The Ivorian is one of the best wingers in the Premier League and he has always been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park.

Arsenal wanted to sign him last summer, but the Eagles were too hard to deal with and the Gunners moved for Nicolas Pepe instead.

They remain linked with a move for him, but Jordan reckons that he will do well if he moves to Tottenham.

“It hasn’t been a great season for Wilfried Zaha. Palace have a valuation for him which I think is based on his talent,” he told TalkSport via TeamTalk

“Some of the output he has given for Palace this season would not necessarily demand the same figure. If you could get £60m last year, you’re going to really struggle to get that now. His form hasn’t been what it was.

“He does want to go but I’m not entirely sure there’s a queue of clubs that will buy him. I think, as much as it galls me, Tottenham is a place that would do Wilfried well.”

Spurs have been busy making signings in this transfer window ahead of Jose Mourinho’s first full season at the club.

The Portuguese manager was appointed so that Spurs can end their wait for a trophy.

He would make good use of a talent like Zaha, but Spurs have a lot of attackers at the moment and it remains to be seen if they will have the cash to pursue a deal for him.

Under £60m now you say SImon
More chance of Balio Coolio coming back than him.

Gold says we have money for a Harry back up but it will not be The Wilf.

Another pipedream shattered just buy Malik and call it a day what would Zaha do to the team lets stick with what we have got how about a defender Spurs get your principles right.

He’d be a double handy player to have in our squad he would. Max% YES from me. You don’t want wilf running at ya. £60mil is a lot though. Anything under £40M then YES

We don’t have the cash and it doesn’t matter…he was supposed to be a big fish in a small pond and he was thoroughly underwhelming…NO THANK YOU!

We have Bergwijn and at less than half of what Palace wanted for him…anyone who says Zaha would be an upgrade on Steven is having a laugh.

With wingers wiping balls in I know who I’d want up there out of the two if/when Kane’s wounded. Wilfs a more versatile player. I’d have him in if the price was right.

If Kane is injured you’d want Zaha over Son? Wilfs hasn’t scored more than 10 in a season. Son is a proven goal scorer and cover for Kane. That reasoning doesn’t really add up, but it’s a mute point as we don’t have the money and if we did we’d buy better cover for Kane…not least an actual striker.

So you’d pay twice as much for Zaha to replace Bergy? For a guy who was garbage last year and would be Rose Mk II in terms of his attitude. If he cost 10-15 and had a better attitude I’d want him in the squad to show what he could do. But a 40-50 million replacement for Bergy doesn’t wash and isn’t what we need.

Good to have him but very unlikely with other positions needing urgent attention.

He can play up top man. Would be a very useful player.
