Tottenham Hotspur scout Chris Powell has told the Totally Football Show Podcast, that he could see Wilfried Zaha representing Mauricio Pochettino’s side, but a transfer next month could problematic.
And Powell believes that Spurs could face a fight with Arsenal to sign the talented wide-man, although he fears Pochettino’s side won’t be able to afford the Ivory Coast international.
“I can’t see him at the two Manchester City, I can’t see him at a Chelsea, I can’t see him at Liverpool. So it has to be Arsenal or Spurs,” Powell said.
“But I can’t see them paying £50m, £60m - so I can only see him staying [in January].”
Powell has been working as a scout for Spurs since November, so his comments suggesting that the Lilywhites could move for the Palace man are interesting.
Pochettino is believed to be a big fan of Zaha, who has been in sensational form for Palace this season.
Zaha has helped the Eagles move away from the drop zone, with his skill and power raising eyebrows.
At the moment Zaha’s value seems to be rising by the game, with the winger going from strength to strength.
