Reports today are suggesting that Wilfried Zaha wants a move to Spurs after Arsenal were put off by his price tag (Independent).

The Ivorian right-winger has been the main man at Crystal Palace since he joined from Manchester United in 2014.

Arsenal were in for Zaha and made him their top target in this window but have cooled their interest in him in recent weeks and now appear to be on the verge of signing Nicolas Pepe from Lille instead (Daily Star).

Meanwhile, Everton have denied making a second bid for Zaha, including £55m plus Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy. They have ended their interest in the player (Liverpool Echo).

Zaha would offer great depth for Spurs on the wing alongside Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son and is an exciting player.

However, it could be argued that Spurs need depth in other areas. After the sale of Keiron Trippier, Spurs have only Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters as proven right-backs and could do with a more solid option.

Spurs Web Opinion:

A move for Zaha would be odd as he is not a typical Levy signing. He would cost a lot and wouldn’t be value for money so I can’t see Spurs making an offer for him.

The wing is a position where we actually have good depth and we could sign players who would address more urgent areas of the squad. Because of this, I don’t think a move for Zaha would be a good idea.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. If you think Zaha only plays as a winger you have got problems. He is also a striker and could be an option if we don’t get Dybala. Come on man wake up!
