Wilfred Zaha: England’s hottest perspective

Wilfred Zaha: England’s hottest perspective

Man Utd and Arsenal are rumored to be interested in signing Crystal Palace 20 year-old forward Wilfried Zaha. Last week Arsenal sent their scouts to watch £20 million-rated Zaha in action and seem to be the most serious contenders to sign the wonderkid in the January transfer window.

At first glance the performance of the striker seems not too efficient: he scored just 4 goals and made three assists in 17 appearances this season. Nevertheless the football analysts agree that Zaha has shown signs of impressive development and is definitely one to watch in the near future. His skills, composure in front of goal, and determination make him England’s hottest perspective.

Zaha himself is unlikely to avoid the pressure and seems to be ready for the challenges at highest level. While being interviewed by Daily Mail he revealed: “unless I’m looking at Ronaldo or Messi, I’d never look at someone else and think he’s better than me,” he said. “I think about the Premier League all the time, wondering when I’m going to come up against better defenders. I don’t think I’ve come up against a defender when I’ve thought ‘What can I do to get past this guy?’
