West Ham United provide escape route for Manchester United ace

Wilfried ZahaManchester United fans are looking in the direction of our landlord here in the Football Transfer Tavern as he fills us in on the latest claim coming from the Daily Mail.

The publication seem to think that Wilfried Zaha is attracting interest from a fair few clubs and the 21-year-old is high on the wishlist of West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce, who will make a swoop for the winger should Manchester United allow him to leave.

The Hammers are desperate for some extra creativity up top and we certainly think that Zaha has something to prove ahead of the up and coming season and that motivation could be key should he make a move away from Old Trafford.

Zaha has struggled to establish himself at the club and barely featured for the Red Devils ahead of a loan switch to Cardiff City in January last season.

Given Louis van Gaal has claimed he only sees Zaha as an out and out forward in his 3-5-2 formation, not a winger – of which he already has four – things do not look so rosy for the England Under-21 international at Old Trafford.

West Ham fans. Would you consider taking Zaha or is another out and out forward the type of player you should be looking for this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
