Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern that he cannot believe Wilfried Zaha is still at Crystal Palace.
Zaha has constantly been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, including in the lead up to the recent summer transfer window, with Goal previously reporting that both Tottenham and Everton were interested in the £40.5m-rated winger.
Nothing materialised, though, resulting in Zaha remaining at Palace, which has shocked Palmer.
Surprised that Zaha is still at Palace?
Speaking exclusively to TT after the Ivory Coast international’s excellent display against Tottenham, the ex-Leeds United player said:
“The one I cannot get my head around, the one I cannot get my head around. He’s only 28. Why has no big club taken Wilfried Zaha? I don’t get that. Something must be wrong somewhere.
“That boy’s got everything, that boy’s got everything. No disrespect to Crystal Palace, he should be playing at a top-five club.”
When you look at his performances, such as his recent one against Tottenham, Zaha certainly does look capable of playing for a team competing in Europe.
He caused Nuno Espirito Santo’s men so many problems, opening the scoring that day from the penalty spot before setting up Odsonne Edouard’s first goal for the club. Palace fans, though, will obviously not be complaining.
