LAZY FAN EXCLUSIVE: Spurs move for Zaha still possible

Speculation linking Spurs with Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is seemingly a staple of every single transfer window in recent years, but it is with good reason. Zaha is one of the most dynamic, dangerous and explosive wingers outside the Premier League’s exclusive Top Six and has proven that he deserves more than yet another relegation dogfight at Selhurst Park.

Lazy Fan Sports can exclusively report that Zaha is still well and truly on Tottenham’s radar but rather unsurprisingly it is Crystal Palace who provide the stumbling block to a potential deal for the Ivory Coast international.

Could this summer finally see Zaha make the move to Spurs

Spurs in for Zaha

It is believed that the Palace winger is available to move but Roy Hodgson is unwilling to let his star man leave for anything less than a hefty fee. This is the stumbling block which is causing Mauricio Pochettino to look elsewhere to strengthen his attacking options for Spurs’ first season in their new stadium.

Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn who plays his club football for PSV Eindhoven is believed to be their new frontrunner ahead of Zaha and will be available for a much cheaper price. However, the issue there is that Bergwijn has no experience outside of Dutch football and may very well struggle with the inevitable step up in quality. Zaha, however, has been excellent in the Premier League for Palace and is a much more reliable option should Spurs decide to fork out the extra cash needed to sign him.

Should Zaha’s fee prove too much, Spurs are expected to turn to Steven Bergwijn

The player himself is likely to be keen on the move having seen how the club, and Pochettino in particular, value their English stars and will be keen to prove his quality at the highest level after a failed big money move to Manchester United in 2013 saw him make just the four appearances.

After returning to Crystal Palace, Zaha has been in outstanding form and many pundits believe they would have been relegated last season had it not been for him. It seems almost inevitable that should the 25-year-old make the move to Tottenham, he will be a massive success.
