£50 million rated Tottenham Linked Zaha should ‘be allowed to leave for bigger club’ Palace told
Crystal Palace forward and Long-term Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha should be allowed to leave for a bigger club, according to the Mirror’s Darren Lewis.
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 £50 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 amid all the speculation, Lewis has claimed that Zaha should be allowed to leave for a bigger club.
The Ivorian has been involved in 60 Premier League goals (37 goals, 23 assists) while at Selhurst Park, 28 more than any other player for the club in the competition.
“He has carried the club at times on his back,” he told Super Sunday Matchday. “It is very easy for people to turn round and criticise players who say they want to move on.
“But he has, he has been a fantastic servant for Palace and if somebody is willing to pay the money, I do not really see any reason why he should not be allowed to go.”
The loss to Everton at the weekend showed that Tottenham are missing a player like Zaha in the side and if they want to pay the money for the winger, then they should make a move as he would be a very good signing for the club.
