Tottenham head betting in Wilfried Zaha next club tips
FootyOn experts give Wilfried Zaha next club tips and assess the state of the betting on his future.
Crystal Palace and Ivory Coast winger Zaha is a mercurial talent – there is no doubt about that.
Whether he stays at Selhurst Park beyond this summer seems to depend on Sam Allardyce staving off relegation, however.
The Eagles are just three points above the drop with eight Premier League games remaining.
Zaha made a high-profile move to Manchester United, but returned to Palace when things didn’t work out.
Recent exploits for club and country are a timely reminder of his ability, ahead of the transfer window reopening.
We assess the market on offer at BetVictor and give you Wilfried Zaha next club tips…
Spurs strong favourites
Tottenham are Chelsea’s closest current challenges as the Premier League title race reaches the run-in.
Should Spurs miss out on domestic honours again, some of Europe’s elite could poach their star players.
Dele Alli, for example, is one name being linked with moves away in tabloid gossip columns.
While Zaha isn’t a direct replacement for the England midfield ace, he has it in him to be no less explosive.
Mauricio Pochettino isn’t using orthodox wide players at the moment, though.
The width at White Hart Lane comes from wing backs not out-and-out wingers.
Nonetheless, Tottenham are strong 2/1 favourites to take Zaha across the capital this summer.
RB Leipzig an intriguing alternative
Bundesliga upstarts RB Leipzig look best of the rest behind Bayern Munich this season.
Founded and owned by energy drink giants Red Bull, they have already flexed their financial muscle.
Leipzig paid Nottingham Forest a reported £13,000,000 this past summer for Scotland wonderkid Oliver Burke.
Zaha would be an even bigger signing and this team, like Spurs, look set to offer Champions League football next season.
There is clear ambition in Leipzig to establish this club as a Bundesliga force.
Whether all this appeals to Zaha remains to be seen, as the team’s potential matches his own.
Chelsea could be contenders
Stamford Bridge has witnessed two undoubted Ivorian talents during the Blues’ most successful era.
Didier Drogba is worshipped by Chelsea fans because of goals in cup finals.
More versatile forward Salomon Kalou, meanwhile, didn’t quite get over to the same extent, but still gave good service.
If Eden Hazard were to leave the Bridge, then Antonio Conte would need a replacement.
Zaha is capable of giving the same impact as the Belgium star on his day.
Conte’s conversion of fellow Palace academy graduate Victor Moses to an effective wing back shows Selhurst stars can make it elsewhere.
Marseille may be best of rest
It’s often the way that Ligue 1 talents cross The Channel to play Premier League football, but Marseille have been loaning in English-based talents.
Although L’OM have buy options on Florian Thauvin and Clinton N’Jie, they will want to strengthen their squad if finishing in a European place this season.
Switching to the Mediterranean coast would cut a lot of travel time down for when Zaha reports for international duty.
At 12/1 to sign for them before September, Marseille represent an outside shout in the market.
