Transfer target handed honest transfer verdict

Wilfried Zaha has been warned against moving to Chelsea, Arsenal or Tottenham once his deal at Crystal Palace expires in the summer. The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with an exit from Selhurst Park for some time now as he continues to impress for the Eagles.

Zaha, who sees his contract at Palace expire in 2023, has featured ten times for Patrick Vieira’s side in the Premier League this season, directly contributing towards six goals. His impressive displays have clawed the south London side into the top half of the table, furthering courting the interest of potential suitors.

As it stands, the Ivory Coast international will be eligible to begin pre-contract talks with foreign clubs in January should he opt against penning a new deal with Palace. But if Zaha were to hold out until June – when his tenure officially comes to an end – then a Premier League move would be on the cards.

“He will not want to go to a top-six club for the sake of it. He will want to play. Zaha is a high-quality player. The last thing he wants is to be a bit-part player. When you look at Newcastle, that could be an option. Look at the way they play with [Allan] Saint-Maximin and [Miguel] Almiron. I think he would fit into that system. He could have an impact there and play most weeks.”
