Transfer News: Wilfried Zaha and Ismaila Sarr eyed by Tottenham Hotspur
Dean Jones via Football Terrace (h/t Express) talked about Tottenham considering a bid for Wilfried Zaha. According to Jones, the club are trying to recruit player who could give the club some versatility. He also suggests that Ismaila Sarr from Watford is another name considered by the club.
“I’ve heard Ismaila Sarr at Watford, Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace, both players that Tottenham are looking at.
However, he adds that the interest in only in the initial stage. Hence, the possibility of any of the above players mentioned signing is far from high.
“It hasn’t gone very far yet and maybe they won’t progress with that interest but the fact that those names are being put forward, they’re a different type of forward.”
Do Tottenham need another winger?
Spurs have already signed a wide player in the form of Bryan Gil. However, Erik Lamela has seen his way out of the club. It appears that managing director, Fabio Paratici could be on the hunt for more wide players.
The need could be due to the fact that Gareth Bale has returned to Real Madrid. Tottenham have had some problems on that part of the pitch. Lucas Moura has struggled for form and consistency. The case of Steven Bergwijn is the same.
Hence, there could be a case for Sarr or Wilfried Zaha. Zaha’s desire to leave Crystal Palace have been well broadcasted. The player has often been linked to bitter rivals Arsenal. However, Palace have always been determined to keep him.
