Roy opens up and announces £80 million rated Tottenham linked winger Zaha ‘has had his head turned’

Roy Hodgson admits wantaway Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha has had his head turned going into the new season.

Crystal Palace forward Zaha, 27, is regarded as one of the most creative and attacking wingers in the Premier League right now and has been linked with a big move away from the club for the last 12 months.

Zaha almost made the move to join a big club last summer, but his hefty price tag meant that no club wanted to pay £80 million to secure a transfer deal and he had to stay put.

But the winger has been back in the headlines over the past few weeks and Tottenham have been linked with a transfer move and boss Hodgson, preparing for today’s Premier League opener against Southampton, said on TalkSport: “There are a lot of things being said and a lot of people putting ideas into his head.

“So it’s not the easiest thing for him to come to terms with.

“The external influences are quite great and he has to battle a few demons there.

“But I must say I’m basing my opinion on what he is doing at the moment.

“His training and the matches he has played for us, there has been no problem at all.

“You’d have to speak to Wilf to find out the exact state of his psyche — but I’m not concerned.”

It is easy to see why Zaha has had his head turned by big clubs, but Palace sticking a massive price tag on his head means that he is not able to make that step up to a bigger club.

He is far too good to stay at Palace and deserves to be at a club like Tottenham, playing for big trophies and in a team that will be in the Champions League.

He would be another ideal signing for Mourinho.
