Pochettino’s Spurs ready to bring Wilfried Zaha to White Hart Lane

In an exclusive reported by Squawka, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Wilfried Zaha this January after having a bid rejected for the winger in August.

What’s the story?

Mauricio Pochettino is looking for more creativity in his attacking midfield and may have found the man ready to solve his problem.

Squawka report that Spurs are plotting a £25m move for Crystal Palace star Zaha, upping their offer from £21m in the summer.

Pochettino has continued to track Zaha’s progress closely according to the story and believes the former England international can inject some much needed danger into the final third.

Squawka reckons the feeling is mutual and that the winger wanted to join Spurs in the summer. It could only be a matter of time before he ends up at White Hart Lane.

Why Zaha?

Zaha is having an exceptional season at the Eagles, contributing 5 assists and 2 goals in his last 8 appearances in the Premier League.

That’s a devastating impact, especially for a team hovering just above the relegation zone.

Despite not making the impact he’d have liked at Manchester United, he seems well placed to finally make the next step in his career and play for one of England’s biggest clubs.

It would be a sad farewell from Selhurst Park. The winger has spent the vast majority of his career at the club and has made over 200 appearances. Could it finally be time to say goodbye to the club for good?
