Tottenham Want To Sign £30m Rated Former Manchester United Star – But Will Be Difficult To Land The Player

Published

on

Tottenham might be in the top four at the moment after their win over Watford but the London club needs reinforcements if they are to continue their charge for a top-four place and a late title push. Mauricio Pochettino did bring in a couple of attackers in the form of Moussa Sissoko and Vincent Janssen in the summer but the duo have been highly ineffective.

Last season they even had Erik Lamela doing extremely well for the side but the Argentine has been missing this season due to injury. Should players such as Dele Alli or Christian Eriksen pick up long-term injuries, Spurs’ top four dreams could come to a halt.

The Guardian reports that Tottenham are looking to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. The attacker had been linked with a move to Liverpool too but it now seems that the London club are interested in bringing him to White Hart Lane.

The deal might be done to bring him over in the winter window with a fee of around £30 million for the 24-year-old but there is a catch. Zaha would be leaving for a few weeks as he travels to play in the African Cup of Nations, something that no team wanting to sign him up would want.

No go for Zaha?

Zaha has been in incredible form for the Eagles this season. The Crystal Palace man has scored three goals and provided six assists this season and has been one of the bright spots for the now Sam Allardyce led side.

There even is the question if Allardyce wants to let go of a player that can not only change games but also keep the side in the division and it will be tough to negotiate with the former England manager.

Tottenham, for their part, needs to bring in quality and while Zaha might have a lot of attacking flair and ability, he is not the most consistent player out there in the world. The former England international might be having a great season at the moment but he does need to perform regularly at the top level if he is to justify that price tag and make the big money move.

We must remember that Zaha did have a poor time when he joined Manchester United and was sent back within a year of his transfer. The 24-year-old might have just one more big move left in him and he has to make it count.

Tottenham need to be sure about their signings and if Pochettino does splash the cash, the fans will expect his new player to hit the ground running from day one.
