Everton should form world-class attack with Zaha

Crystal Palace sensation Wilfried Zaha would be the ideal striker at Everton if Marcel Brands can work his magic to snatch a Premier League rival’s star player again.

What’s the word?

Brands has not been afraid to splash out huge sums in the past to snap up another club’s top talent, having lured Richarlison out of Watford in the summer to link up with his former manager.

Under Marco Silva, the Brazilian has returned to the stellar form he began his English footballing career with, and the Portuguese manager could get the same out of Zaha.

It was believed in the summer that the Toffees had lined the Ivory Coast international up as a possible transfer target, with suggestions touted around that the Blues would sign off £60million for his services.

A similar figure would certainly be needed for the 26-year-old, who often has to carry the Eagles on his back, now given he earns a reported £120,000-a-week.

It was only against Leicester on December 15 that Crystal Palace managed their first win without Zaha since a 3-2 victory over Sunderland back in September 2016.

The perfect partner for Richarlison

Say the 5 foot 11 forward were to move to Goodison Park in January, he would be the ideal player to join Richarlison in attack.

The dynamic duo would blow the minds of opposing defenders with their pace and trickery, and have both proven to possess a lethal touch in front of goal when handed the right service.

Zaha’s arrival could also allow Silva to return Richarlison to his natural left-wing position, for the Eagles’ number 11 is much more of a natural striker than the Brazilian.

In a three-man attack, joined by Theo Walcott or Ademola Lookman on the right, Gylfi Sigurdsson would be spoiled for choice of who to pick out – something that will keep the opposition guessing all game long.

It is fair to say, Zaha may be the missing piece of the puzzle to European qualification.
