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.

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.

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.

Spurs want Wilfried Zaha to move to North London .
Tottenham are ready to beat Manchester City to the signing of Wilfried Zaha this summer, reports the Telegraph. Zaha is of main interest to Manchester City but Spurs want to rival that in trying to tempt the Ivorian international away from Selhurst Park. The 25-year-old is the star man at Palace, his nine goals this season are the best return of his Premier League career. His form hasn’t gone unnoticed either, he won the April player of the month award after four goals which sealed safety for the South London club. Spurs are looking to improve their squad to fight on the league front as well as in the Champions League next season, and Zaha could be the missing piece for them. His trickery down the left would allow Son Heung-Min to be a permanent player up top. The Eagles would struggle to live without Zaha right now, they didn’t pick up a single point without him this season so any offer would have to be remarkable. Roy Hodgson is rumoured to be looking for a fee of around £50 million, to allow Palace to reinforce their squad with more talent.
