Hodgson hails Zaha's role in Palace's survival

  Hodgson hails Zaha's role in Palace's survival Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has lavished praise on Wilfried Zaha. The Eagles secured their Premier League safety recently and much of this was down to Zaha and his talismanic performances for the team. It has been a difficult campaign for Crystal Palace and one in which Zaha’s importance has only been reinforced. The Ivorian international is the club’s leading goalscorer this season and has been instrumental in Hodgson’s side. Zaha was recently crowned as Crystal Palace’s Player of the Year, as voted by the fans, meaning that the forward scooped the award for the third successive year. Speaking to Palace’s official club website, as cited in a report from Goal, Hodgson was quick to commend Zaha for his efforts in helping the club avoid the drop down to the Championship this term. “He’s shown how special he is for a long time now. This year, when we really needed players to step up to the plate and get us out of the situation we found ourselves in, and we’ve pulled off a great escape.” “Wilf has done exceptionally well and I fully understand why the fans have voted for him as the Player of the Year.” Palace face West Brom at Selhurst Park in their final Premier League game of the season this weekend and will be hoping to pip Newcastle United to a top-half finish.

Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are all keeping tabs on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mirror.

Zaha’s former club Manchester United seem to be the only top club not interested in signing the Ivorian star.

Spurs are most likely to make the first move on Zaha, as Manchester City’s first choice would be Riyad Mahrez, and Chelsea and Arsenal still need to resolve their manager situations.

Champions League finalists Liverpool could also be in with a shout but Palace will be looking for big money for one of the hottest properties in the league.

Ex-Eagles chaiman Simon Jordan thinks the Ivorian star could go for between £50m and £70m.

Liverpool consider summer move for Wilfried Zaha

  Liverpool consider summer move for Wilfried Zaha Liverpool are one of the sides keeping tabs on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha with a view to a possible summer move, according to the Daily Mirror. Zaha’s former club Manchester United seem to be the only top club not interested in signing the Ivorian star as Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal are also said to be considering making a bid for him.

Champions League finalists Liverpool could also be in with a shout but Palace will be looking for big money for one of the hottest properties in the league. Ex-Eagles chaiman Simon Jordan thinks the Ivorian star could go for between £50m and £70m. “I think Wilfried Zaha is a £50million to £70million player in this market place. If you put him in a side that has some real balance and poise about it, you’d only get more from him. I think £50m would be the lowest he should go for. I think he’ll go for nearer £70m.” The 25-year-old said last week that he can’t see himself leaving Palace this window but isn’t ruling out a return to one of the top six clubs at some point in the future.

Tottenham eyeing move for Zaha .
Mauricio Pochettino has made Wilfired Zaha one of his top priorities after signing a new Tottenham contract, reports the Mail Online. The Spurs boss signed a five-year deal worth around £8.5 million a year to stay with the club, and expects a considerable budget to help him take the club to the next level. The Argentine wants £100 million to guarantee trophies with Palace star Zaha, Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Fulham wonder kid Ryan Sessegnon on their wish list as Tottenham look for at least one big signing before they move to their new stadium. Zaha has had an impressive season. The 25-year-old has scored nine goals this season, the best return of his Premier League career. His form was noticed at the end of the season as he won April’s Premier League player of the month award after scoring four goals which sealed safety for the South London club. Pochettino sees Zaha as a player that can take Spurs to the next level. His trickery down the left would allow Son Heung-Min to be a permanent player up top. Palace, however, will be hoping to keep hold of their star man as they look to push on under Roy Hodgson next season.
