BBC Pundit: This 24-year-old should not move to Tottenham this summer

The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see Wilfried Zaha join the club this summer…

However, it seems as though BBC pundit Garth Crooks thinks that the Crystal Palace winger would be far better served by a prolonged spell at Crystal Palace.

He said: “May I suggest that Zaha, having had a disappointing period at Manchester United, takes a pause before considering White Hart Lane.

“Another season at Crystal Palace under the tutelage of Allardyce may be more beneficial to his overall development”, he added.

It’s tough to disagree with Crooks here, with Allardyce clearly bringing the best out of Zaha so far this season. He was struggling somewhat until the ex-England boss came in – but he has since really turned a corner. Offering direct attacking flair and a goalscoring threat to boot, Zaha is arguably one the Premier League’s standout young talents.

Indeed, the thought of Tottenham signing the winger was not a particularly exciting one for the Lilywhites in the pub last season, but now – it certainly is. With summer signing Moussa Sissoko disappointing this year, could Zaha be a good replacement for Tottenham?
