Speaking to talkSPORT, ex-Premier League forward Tony Cascarino has shed light on ex-Spurs target Wilfried Zaha’s ‘worrying’ performances after failing to secure a move away in the summer transfer window – going on to claim that he looks ‘totally disinterested’.
Zaha, who has long been Palace’s star asset and who has consistently linked with a move away, including across London to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, was recently tipped to make that same switch by various figures in the media.
Indeed, ex-Eagles chairman Simon Jordan touted the Lilywhites as a perfect fit for Zaha, told talkSPORT, via the Evening Standard, that the financial impact of a worldwide global pandemic could lower his price tag.
Should Spurs have signed Zaha in the summer?
No, Bale was the much better coup
Kevin Phillips also backed up this notion to Football Insider last month, imploring the Ivorian to hold out for a Lilywhites move after Daniel Levy made an offer above £70 million to sign him in 2019.
After he failed to secure a summer switch to either Spurs or another Premier League top six side, Cascarino has shed light on his ‘worrying’ displays by hinting that he is ‘disinterested’ and no longer playing for a move.
“Zaha’s performance is worrying.”
“He seems totally disinterested.” 🤷♂️

The 27-year-old, who completed 4.3 dribbles per 90 on average over 2019/2020, fairly impressive numbers from one of the division’s most threatening wingers, faces at least another eight weeks at Selhurst Park before he is given the chance to seek another offer.
Manager Roy Hodgson relayed the club’s stance that he wasn’t available for a deadline day move, either, with the club refusing to entertain any late bids.
Whether or not Tottenham reignite their interest in January remains to be seen, but he does appear desperate to leave.
