David Webb has suggested to The National that Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha would be a good signing for Tottenham Hotspur or Everton.

Webb, former Head of Football Operations at Huddersfield Town who also worked as a scout at Tottenham, discovered Zaha when he was 13 years of age, as reported by The National.

Described as a ‘recruitment expert’ by talkSPORT in July 2020, Webb believes that time has come for the Ivory Coast international to leave Palace.

Webb has also suggested that the former Manchester United winger would make Spurs or Everton stronger.

Webb told The National: “I think this would be the best time for him to go. He has been a fantastic servant to Palace and has been their talisman but if he wants to have a chance to play European football, or challenge for some sort of trophy, potentially he will need to move now.”

Webb added: “Tottenham and Everton would be the two in England. He could add to Tottenham. Wilf can play as one of the wide players as he does at Palace or out of position as a No 9.

“They could use that as an alternative attacking threat because certainly they missed that when Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son were out. Everton definitely need to strengthen in those areas.”

Too expensive for Tottenham Hotspur or Everton?

Tottenham and Everton are big and ambitious clubs who could do with an experienced and quality player such as Zaha in their respective teams.

The former United winger would bring pace, tricks and goals to Spurs or the Toffees, but the problem is that the 27-year-old could be too expensive for the two clubs.

According to a report in The Daily Star earlier this month, Palace want as much as £50 million as transfer fee for Zaha.

Meanwhile, reported Everton target Tosin Adarabioyo has stated on Twitter that he is ready for the new season.

According to The Sunday Mirror (print edition, page 65, August 9, 2020), Everton are considering a move for the 22-year-old Manchester City central defender in the summer transfer window.
