Tottenham might be enjoying a fine patch of form as they appear to be the best placed team to challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title but the club still is looking to make a couple of signings with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, once again linked with a move.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men are placed third in the Premier League and are nine points behind leaders Chelsea but they did beat the Blues recently and have one of the best defences in the league too.
The problem for Tottenham has been in the goal scoring department, well at least in having cover for the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane. The English duo have done the bulk of the scoring for the White Hart Lane club and Zaha is being touted as a possible player to help them out with this respect.
Pochettino wants to add players to his side as they look to bring in some silverware to the Lane. The team is still in the running for the FA Cup and Europa League and the extra games in the competitions could take a toll on the side.
The Sun has reported that the interest in signing Zaha is back and Crystal Palace would be willing to let their prized possession leave for £25m. The Eagles are desperate to avoid relegation and need to get as much as they can from the Ivory Coast international.
Zaha was earlier linked with a move to Tottenham at the start of the winter transfer window but the interest cooled down once the player went to take part in the African Cup of Nations.
Will Zaha help Tottenham out?
As stated earlier, goals are a requirement for Tottenham from their attackers and Zaha has only scored four goals all season, which certainly isn’t the best record to have. The former Manchester United player does have a number of assists to his name but it is a little strange seeing him linked once again with Spurs.
Zaha won’t really help the side score more goals and has been extremely inconsistent in his career. Spurs have wasted millions on many players who haven’t really performed since coming to the club under Pochettino.
And with the club financing a new stadium, the money paid on transfers has to be kept an eye on. There certainly are better options than Zaha and possibly, Pochettino would have to use more of the academy players in the upcoming months.
