Since Wilfried Zaha’s transfer request last season, some of the Crystal Palace fan base have had doubts in their mind over how long the Ivorian will stay for, and they have been reacting to the latest news which suggests Napoli are keen on the winger.
According to Area Napoli, the Italian side have been interested in Zaha in the past, and they are trying to see what his thoughts are on a possible move by contacting his ‘entourage’.
Due to recent events, the media outlet believes that Crystal Palace’s valuation has dropped to around £50 million, but Napoli might not look towards signing him if they manage to acquire Victor Osimhen.
Do you think it's best for Zaha to leave the club?
Although the winger has struggled this season when it comes to goal contributions as he has only managed four goals and three assists, per WhoScored, he still shows why some of Europe’s biggest teams are wanting to sign him as he manages 1.5 shots per game and completes 4.4 successful dribbles a game.
The dribbles stand out as they show how good he is at taking on defenders and this attacking threat is always a great thing to have in any team.
It seems many Palace fans believe that the time has come for him to move on. Some suggest the winger deserves a go at a bigger club, whereas others believe its best he parts ways as the funds they can get from him would benefit the squad which is currently on average the second oldest in the division, as they could use the transfer money to bring in a couple of players.
Here is what fans said following the news:
📰 Napoli have conducted an ‘exploratory survey’ with Wilfried Zaha’s entourage as they have already sought him out in the past.
Napoli believe his valuation has dropped to €50m due to Covid-19, although, they may not pursue him if they sign Victor Osimhen.
