Sky Sports pundit Clinton Morrison has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal 'would take' Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha

The former Birmingham City striker shared that he knows Zaha personally and warned that you wouldn't want to be in a one-on-one situation with the attacker if you are a defender. 

The 26-year-old will be preparing for his side's home clash against Premier League title-chasing Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, with Roy Hodgson looking to do the double over Pep Guardiola.


Speaking to Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports News (13/04/2019 at 12:45 pm), Morrison was adamant that London-based Zaha would get into Arsenal's team. 

"When he is in a one-on-one situation, you don't want to be against Wilf [Zaha]," Morrison told Sky Sports News. "And he believes in his own ability. I know him personally, he plays like he is in the playing ground. He plays like 'give me the ball, I'm going to make things happen'. He likes to entertain, do a trick and make the defender look silly. 

"I believe Arsenal or Tottenham would take him. I think he would get into Arsenal's team. I can't see Liverpool or Manchester City."

During the early part of his career, Zaha did play for Manchester United, but he was unable to prove his worth as he left Old Trafford without really making his mark. 

Since his return to Selhurst Park, he has gone from strength to strength and improved in many areas of his game, in particular, in the final third.
