Tottenham in pole position to sign Zaha
Tottenham have ‘jumped ahead of other suitors’ in the race to sign Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Spurs linked…
Spurs have been linked with a move for the Ivorian in recent seasons, including this campaign, as the Ivorian’s contract slowly winds down.
Zaha will be available on a free deal this summer as things stand with no sign of fresh terms being penned at Selhurst Park, potentially alerting Antonio Conte‘s side to his availability.
Roma and Manchester United are other sides linked with a potential move, but according to a fresh claim, Spurs appear to be in pole position.
The Latest: Tottenham jump ahead in Zaha race…
As per London World, Spurs have now ‘jumped ahead of other suitors’ in the race for Zaha and it is believed the Lilywhites have been ‘in touch’ with his representatives.
The north Londoners are apparently ‘increasingly confident’ of signing the Premier League star as Spurs step up their interest.
The Verdict: Get it done…
The 30-year-old has been a revelation for Palace under Patrick Vieira this season with pundit Gabby Agbonlahor even claiming he would start ‘over’ Dejan Kulusevski at Spurs.
Called ‘unplayable’ by members of the media, Zaha has stood out as the Eagles’ best-performing attacker by average match rating this season (WhoScored).
The former Man United forward has six goals and two assists to his name, averaging a higher rate of attempts at goal and completed take-ons per 90 than any Palace player (WhoScored).
On a free deal, Zaha would be a steal for any club, especially Spurs.
