Stats suggest Zaha is a good fit for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur are once again finding themselves linked with the services of Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, with The Daily Express stating Mauricio Pochettino’s side are planning another swoop this summer following failure to secure a deal in the previous two transfer windows.

The 24-year-old, who flopped at Manchester United after making just two Premier League appearances in two-years, has got his career back-on-track since returning to Crystal Palace and should make a step-up this summer.

Whilst Spurs are blessed with impressive attacking options, the stats show Wilfried Zaha would be an ideal addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s side and a swoop should definitely be made.

With six assists and four goals this season, Zaha has been one of few bright sparks for a struggling Crystal Palace side but his most impressive contribution is the fact he’s completed a whopping 127 take-ons; a number only Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez can better.

Zaha would excel out-wide with Mauricio Pochettino’s side, creating a deadly attacking quintet alongside Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min, so Spurs should definitely push to complete a deal.
