If any team is planning to take Wilfried Zaha out of Crystal Palace this summer, it is not going to be easy for them.
According to the Daily Mail, the south London club will demand a staggering £80m fee for their star man.
And should one outfit be willing to pay that, then they will look to Jack Grealish and Ademola Lookman as potential replacements, the same outlet reports.
Struggling to break into Everton’s starting XI, a transfer to a side like Crystal Palace could be a good move.
And from the Eagles’ perspective, it is not hard to see why they would want the 21-year-old.
Quick and a capable dribbler, with his direct style of play, Lookman looks an ideal fit for the 4-4-2 formation Roy Hodgson often goes with.
The England U21 international alone, though, will not be enough to make up for the loss of Zaha.
Arriving with another creative attacker like Grealish would obviously lighten the blow but, if not, Crystal Palace could find themselves in big trouble next season.
For as good as Lookman is, asking the Everton man to instantly deliver and replicate Zaha’s impact might be a bit too much.
Considering his talent and potential, Lookman is certainly worth bringing in. But if the Eagles are going to be without their Ivorian talisman, then the ex-Charlton winger’s arrival has to come alongside another attacker and a goalscorer.
