Tottenham Hotspur may have to look elsewhere in their pursuit for a winger after Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson claimed that Wilfried Zaha is “going nowhere for four years”.
Zaha has been linked with a move to Tottenham continually since the end of last season and rumours gathered momentum when the 25-year-old Ivory Coast international was apparently refusing to sign a new deal with the Premier League strugglers.
While we are crying out for natural width, we have been linked with a host of wingers including Bordeaux’s Malcom who is becoming the modern-day Leandro Damiao in terms of how frequent he is being tipped to join us.
Zaha would be a brilliant signing for us, he is proven Premier League quality, even though he suffered a blip in his career at Manchester United. However, the prospect of Levy spending upwards of £70million just isn’t going to happen.
Hodgson said: “What people seem to forget with Wilf is he has got a four-year contract.
“There is speculation every year around Messi and Ronaldo too. He is our player for the next four years and the club has got no interest or desire to sell him.”
