“Absolute handful”- Tottenham Hotspur fans told a move for African superstar seems ‘unrealistic’

Transfer News: Kevin Campbell believes a Tottenham Hotspur move for Wilfried Zaha is ‘unrealistic’

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes that a move for Crystal Palace and Ivory Coast forward Wilfried Zaha to Tottenham Hotspur is ‘unrealistic’.

Spurs explored a last-minute move for the 30-year-old this summer, according to The Athletic (subscription required). However, nothing came of such speculation.

Now, speaking to Football Insider, the former Gooner striker gave his opinion on how the former Manchester United winger would fit in manager Antonio Conte’s side should he make a move to north London.

“There’s going to be a lot of clubs looking at Zaha. But again, it’s a question of finding a way for him to fit into that Spurs side. He’s an absolute handful, and someone of that quality 100% deserves to start games at a top club.”

“Harry Kane is a definite starter, Son is a definite starter. Then you’ve got Richarlison who you signed for big money, you’ve also got Kulusevski. I think that speculation is unrealistic unless Conte can guarantee Zaha he will start most games.”

It is really an interesting opinion that Campbell has. Harry Kane could be considered undroppable, but the rest of the attackers are not definite starters.

Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski have all been rotated this season. But there are no quality substitutes in the team. Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil have not shown the same enthusiasm as the regular starters.

Recent injuries to Richarlison and Kulusevski have only highlighted that problem. A top-quality forward is needed who will not only help in adding depth but also provide tough competition to the regular players.

Zaha is a top-quality attacker and he has shown it over the years at Selhurst Park. The 30-year-old has six goals in 13 league appearances so far.

While the Ivorian will have to fight for his place at Spurs, he will have the chance to play in the UEFA Champions League. He has never played in the premier European competition, after all, and he doesn’t have a lot of years left at the top of the game.

More Tottenham News:

The forward sees his current contract expire next summer (transfermarkt). In all honesty, as good as Zaha is, it does seem unrealistic that he accepts a role where he doesn’t play regularly.
