Tottenham tipped to sign Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha on a free transfer
Gabriel Agbonlahor has backed Wilfried Zaha to join a top London-based club like Arsenal, Chelsea, or Tottenham Hotspur at the end of his Crystal Palace contract.
The Ivory Coast international has been a long-time presence at Selhurst Park, having scored 88 goals and providing 74 assists in 439 matches across competitions for the club. He has been linked to UEFA Champions League-playing clubs previously, but nothing ever materialised.
“Last night at the game I found out that his contract runs out next summer, he can go on a free transfer to a top club. I mean if you are an Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, you’re snapping him up on a three-year contract.”
Agbonlahor believes that the former Manchester United winger has the hunger to make it at a truly big club. He added:
“Because last night he was outstanding, even his hunger still. He has been playing in the Premier League for so long now…”
The ex-Aston Villa centre-forward’s comments come after Crystal Palace’s 2-1 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday night (October 18), where he scored the winning goal in the 70th minute of the game.
Zaha could seriously be a very good asset to possess. He has knowledge of the Premier League and is visibly taking responsibility on the pitch to make things happen for his team.
It is honestly a surprise that a player of his calibre has never played for a ‘bigger’ club than Palace, with all due respect to the Londoners. After all, he cannot play in the European competitions with them – unless things take a miraculous turn.

His incredible versatility means that Zaha can play anywhere across the frontline. If he doesn’t renew his deal at Palace, then the 29-year-old could be a man in-demand at the end of the season.
