Tottenham should look away from Zaha now
Tottenham Hotspurs are believed to be interested in a summer move for Crystal Palace forward, Wilfried Zaha, but they have to look away from such move now having signed Lucas Moura from PSG in January.
According to reports from The Times, Spurs are considering a move for long-term target Zaha at the end of this season, who is currently on a £100,000-a-week deal at Selhurst Park.
The report confirmed that the 25-year-old could cost more than £50million to sign given the crucial role he plays for Palace.
The North London side have been recurrently linked with the Ivorian and Manager, Mauricio Pochettino who believes Zaha offers pace on the wings is a long-term admirer of the player.
Zaha has also proven his talent and brilliance beyond any doubt as he has repeatedly caused pains for Palace’s opponents.
However, the Ivory Coast international is injury prone and to pay nearly £50million would be an absurd deal for Spurs having landed Brazilian, Lucas Moura last month.
The pace and industry needed on the wings could have been solved in January as a result of Moura’s acquisition as the 25-year-old offers the club a wealth of experience from his time with the French giants aside his blistering speed.
Spurs already have players like Heung-Min Son, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli in the attacking positions and Moura will definitely be a fantastic addition to this amazing set-up.
It is very unlikely that Zaha could get ahead of these types of players in the pecking order and at a massive eight-figure transfer fee, the deal is simply worth looking away from.
And Moura who offer the magic that the team craves for on the wings and at an unbelievable price of only £23million, he is surely a prized asset for Spurs who is capable of ripping a lot of Premier League’s back-line apart.
