Five of the Premier League top six all chasing Wilfried Zaha

  Five of the Premier League top six all chasing Wilfried Zaha Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are all keeping tabs on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mirror. Zaha’s former club Manchester United seem to be the only top club not interested in signing the Ivorian star. Spurs are most likely to make the first move on Zaha, as Manchester City’s first choice would be Riyad Mahrez, and Chelsea and Arsenal still need to resolve their manager situations. Champions League finalists Liverpool could also be in with a shout but Palace will be looking for big money for one of the hottest properties in the league. Ex-Eagles chaiman Simon Jordan thinks the Ivorian star could go for between £50m and £70m. “I think Wilfried Zaha is a £50million to £70million player in this market place. If you put him in a side that has some real balance and poise about it, you’d only get more from him. I think £50m would be the lowest he should go for. I think he’ll go for nearer £70m.” The 25-year-old said last week that he can’t see himself leaving Palace this window but isn’t ruling out a return to one of the top six clubs at some point in the future.

Pep may look to sign Palace forward Zaha after he kept his side up this season. City may face opposition from Spurs for the 25-year-old who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last signing at Old Trafford before his departure.

Pep said:

“I like Crystal Palace, Zaha and other players.”

Zaha however insists he is content at Selhurst Park, he said:

“I have no plans on leaving. I’m enjoying my football, you can see how much I’m enjoying it. This is my home and there’s no reason for me to leave.”

Spurs want Wilfried Zaha to move to North London .
Tottenham are ready to beat Manchester City to the signing of Wilfried Zaha this summer, reports the Telegraph. Zaha is of main interest to Manchester City but Spurs want to rival that in trying to tempt the Ivorian international away from Selhurst Park. The 25-year-old is the star man at Palace, his nine goals this season are the best return of his Premier League career. His form hasn’t gone unnoticed either, he won the April player of the month award after four goals which sealed safety for the South London club. Spurs are looking to improve their squad to fight on the league front as well as in the Champions League next season, and Zaha could be the missing piece for them. His trickery down the left would allow Son Heung-Min to be a permanent player up top. The Eagles would struggle to live without Zaha right now, they didn’t pick up a single point without him this season so any offer would have to be remarkable. Roy Hodgson is rumoured to be looking for a fee of around £50 million, to allow Palace to reinforce their squad with more talent.
