With only a number of days left before the setting in of the New Year, the world of football is set for a fascinating phase outside the playing turf. The English Premier League is all set to hog the limelight in the January transfer window as news and updates have flown in that promising youngster Wilfried Zaha might leave his current club and Tottenham Hotspur might be his new destination.
It has been quite a while that the news has come in that Tottenham Hotspur is in pursuit of the Ivory Coast – born winger. But chances have been very low all this that the possible transfer will take place. but with the new manager coming in it seems that the transfer might just become possible. This is because it has been reported that there has apparently been a rift between Zaha and his manager Sam Allardyce who has been brought in recently to replace former manager Alan Pardew.
Wilfried Zaha has been in sublime form this season for his club Crystal Palace which has seen him getting a call-up for the national side. But this has somewhat angered Sam Allardyce for previously he had promised his former manager Alan Pardew that he will not leave the club even if there is a national team call-up so that he can serve Crystal Palace find themselves in a better position before approaching the end of the season. But now that he has been selected in the national club and is about to ditch his club in order to play for his country, things are looking much sour than before. And this has been cited as the reason for Sam Allardyce getting angry with the winger.
Now Tottenham Hotspur has been in the hunt for quite some time. And with this new rift that has been reported to have developed between Wilfried Zaha and Sam Allardyce, the January transfer period might just see the Ivory Coast winger shifting his base out of Crystal Palace and go on to play for Tottenham Hotspur.
Besides these, there are also reports coming in from the English Premier League that the upcoming transfer period might see Manchester United selling Anthony Martial to Sevilla FC as he has failed to find enough first team chances to make a mark. Also former Manchester United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez has been reported to be making a comeback to the English Premier League but this time he has been linked to Chelsea. However, it remains to be seen whether this move turns to be real once we head into the January transfer period within a number of days.
