According to the latest odds released by the United Kingdom bookmakers (via Football.London), Arsenal are leading the chase for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha but will face competition from Tottenham Hotspur after their price was slashed from 10/1 into 5/2 following the player’s admission that he wants to leave Selhurst Park at the end of this campaign. In a recent interview (mentioned by Football.London), Zaha shed some light on his future and said, “For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable of, I have to aim to play at the very highest level, to win trophies.
“I’m blessed to have come this far in my playing career. But I feel like there is so much more I have to offer.
“I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that’s it. And I’ll do the rest.”
Zaha’s Rich Vein Of Form For The Eagles This Season
The Ivory Coast sensation has enjoyed another fruitful campaign with the Eagles after putting in a series of game-clinching displays for them during this season. He has been Roy Hodgson’s biggest weapon going forward so losing him this summer will be a bitter pill to swallow for the London team.
The 26-year-old has featured in 36 matches for the Selhurst-outfit this term, scoring ten goals while creating ten assists in all competitions. The former Manchester United winger has also earned nine international caps for Ivory Coast and has two goals for his nation.
What Will The Ivory Coast Goal-Getter Bring To North London?
Zaha boasts blistering pace and can make well-timed runs behind the opposition backline. He tends to be quite direct with his dribbles down the wide areas and can be quite devastating when left in 1v1 situations with his marker. However, the Abidjan born speedster needs to add more goals and assists to his game if he wants to succeed for an elite club at the highest level.
Zaha’s Addition: Wise Move For Pochettino?
The Ivory Coast international could be a massive coup for Spurs if they can orchestrate a deal to bring him to the new White Hart Lane in this offseason. He has all the makings to be a successful signing for the North London outfit in the long-run.
Hence, it could be a shrewd move for Tottenham as Zaha’s productivity in the final third might increase even more with better players operating around him in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team.
