Liverpool and Spurs keep tabs on Palace ace

Wilfried Zaha is a target for both Spurs and Liverpool, with Eagles boss Dougie Freedman claiming that the player will be sold when the time is right.

The youngster is seen as Palace’s next big asset, and looks set to follow in the footsteps of former team mate Victor Moses into the Premier League.

Zaha has drawn scouts from the Premier League for over a year now, and anyone at Molineux on Tuesday night would have witnessed a screamer from the England U21 star to further add proof of his talents.

Newcastle wanted the striker back in the summer, and more recently Wigan manager Roberto Martinez showed an interest in the 19 year old.

With plenty of attraction coming from the Premier League, Dougie Freedman accepts the reality that there will be a time when his star player will have to leave, with Liverpool and Spurs both signalling their intention prior to the January transfer window.

“When he is ready and when I think he’s ready to go to the right club, I will tap Wilfried on the shoulder and tell him I can’t help him any longer, Freedman told TalkSport.

“It’s a little bit different with my kids, the relationship has been there a long time. Wilfried can play at the top level if he continues going with his movement, he’s got wonderful technique and ability. His all round game is coming together.”
