Redknapp urges Tottenham to sign Zaha

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp has urged Mauricio Pochettino’s side to move for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha this summer.

Zaha missed the early stages of the 2017-18 campaign with a knee problem, but has been in outstanding form for the Eagles since returning to action.

Indeed, the former Manchester United attacker has netted nine goals and registered five assists in 29 appearances for Palace this season.

Following Sunday’s clash with West Bromwich Albion, Zaha insisted that he had ‘no plans’ to leave Selhurst Park in this summer’s transfer window.

Tottenham and Manchester City are both believed to be preparing bids for the 25-year-old, however, and Redknapp has urged his former club to make a move ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Redknapp told the Daily Mail:

“Wilfried Zaha is a top-six manager’s dream – a game-changer who on his day is unplayable. This is not the raw talent who could not cut it at Manchester United.

“Zaha has gone up a level and is embracing being Palace’s main man. He is the best player outside the top six and although he said on Sunday that he wants to stay at Selhurst Park, he’s bound to attract interest.

“Tottenham, who have looked at him before, could be the ideal destination for him.”

Zaha, who has enjoyed his best ever season in terms of goals, only made four first-team appearances during his time at Man United between 2013 and 2015 before sealing a return to Palace.
