Wilfried Zaha has been linked with a move to Tottenham for the last couple of years. The Ivorian, who has been widely acknowledged as one of the most talented players in the Premier League, recently revealed his desire to play Champions League football. (Daily Mail)

His current manger Roy Hodgson, however, has reiterated his intention to hang on the 26-year-old and insisted that Zaha is happy at Crystal Palace. (BBC)

In a segment for beIN SPORTS, Andy Gray, Tim Cahill, and former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson discussed if it is time for the tricky winger to leave the Eagles.

Former Sky Sports pundit Andy Gray insisted that the former Manchester United player will prove a success in a top-six club and that he is a much better player now than he was during his ill-fated stint with the Red Devils.

Watch the segment below:

Spurs Web take:

Given how well Zaha has played for Palace over the last few seasons, they will likely demand a substantial fee for the Ivorian international. While Zaha will no doubt be a valuable addition to the Spurs squad, the price-tag being discussed probably puts Tottenham out of the running.

Tottenham will be better off going for younger, up and coming players like Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen or Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, who represent better value for money, even though they are not quite the finished product.
