Reports claim that Spurs have opened talks with Crystal Palace to sign Wilfried Zaha.
Zaha is said to be keen on the move and has asked to leave Palace. The 23-year old is rated at £15m.
It’s not yet known if Tottenham want this player as well as Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, or if they see Zaha as an alternative.
Fans have been split on social media as to whether Zaha would make a good signing. The England international flopped when he left Crystal Palace for Manchester United and swiftly returned to Selhurst Park on loan, before signing a permanent deal in February 2015.
Yet Zaha was unfortunate to be the last player to be signed by Alex Ferguson, just before the legendary Manchester United boss left the club. He never got to play for the manager who signed him and failed to impress Fergie’s replacement David Moyes.
It wasn’t so long ago that Zaha was rated as one of the most exciting young talents in the country. He’s young enough to still improve and under Mauricio Pochettino that’s a possibility, with the likes of Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele having been transformed by the Argentine.
So is Zaha worth a chance, or would history repeat himself if he stepped back up to the big time? Let us know in the comments section below.
