Zaha to Dortmund – Does it make sense?

Share This Post

According to German media outlet Sport Bild, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are targeting a move for Crystal Palace superstar Wilfried Zaha. It is reported that he would be signed as a replacement for Chelsea bound winger Christian Pulisic.

The winger has been very impressive over the last few years at Palace, but his form this season has fluctuated. He’s registered just three goals and four assists so far this term.

If he was to make the move over to Germany, he would join up with fellow English-grown winger Jadon Sancho who has set Bundesliga alight since his move from Manchester City. It would mean we would likely see a Dortmund front three of Sancho, Reus and Zaha which is more than enough to make your mouth water.

Does Zaha to Dortmund really make sense?

For Zaha, yes it does. A move to a Champions League side surely has to be the goal for a player of his talent. When you consider that his current side are floating just above the relegation you would expect most players would jump at this opportunity.

However, Zaha has played for Palace for nearly his entire career, bar a two year period in Manchester. You’d think he would be loyal enough to the London club to stick around at least until the end of the season. After all they have done for him personally, he owes them that at the very least.

However, the move to Germany does make sense in the long term as we’re seeing a real upturn in English-grown players moving abroad. With Sancho paving the way, followed closely by Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson (loan to Hoffenheim), it seems there is success to be had for English-grown players in Germany.

From a Crystal Palace point of view, it makes absolutely no sense to sell your best player – not unless there’s big money involved. Steve Parish and Roy Hodgson will know that but if Dortmund, or another club, were to offer a significant amount of money, they would be hard pressed to say no.

TransferMarkt currently value the player at £31million but in today’s market, I can personally see any potential transfer fee being significantly higher. If Richarlison is worth £50million, then surely Zaha is worth somewhere around there too.

What do you think? Should Zaha go? Is he worth as much as Richarlison is? Have your say below.
