Ian Wright: Tottenham fans will want this £30m-rated attacker at their club next season
By Amir Mir
Ian Wright believes Tottenham fans will want Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha at the club next season.
The 24-year-old attacker has been a key figure behind his team’s turn of form in recent weeks, which has seen them edge closer to safety.
Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Zaha would be rated at £30million if Spurs were to come in for him in the summer.
Zaha has added consistency to his game during this campaign and Wright believes that would make him very dangerous for the north London club.
“Tottenham fans will want him there,” Wright told BT Sports Premier League Tonight Show, which aired on Saturday evening. “If he can get that consistency, he would be a major asset to Spurs.

Wright is then asked by presenter Jake Humphrey how much Zaha would cost Tottenham: “£30 odd million isn’t he,” he replied.
“If Zaha gets that consistency he would be phenomenal there.”
Over the course of the season, Zaha has played 32 Premier League matches, scoring six goals added with his 11 assists.
At this moment in time, there is no natural wide player performing on the right-hand side of attack for Spurs.
Erik Lamela is currently out injured and summer signing Moussa Sissoko has not lived up to expectations.
Playmaker Christian Eriksen has been utilised as a wide midfielder at times, but due to his quality, he can play in a number of positions.
In recent weeks, Zaha’s most impressive performances have come against league leaders Chelsea and Arsenal.
He scored and assisted at Stamford Bridge as Sam Allardyce’s team recorded a shock win away from home.
Zaha also provided two assists at home to strugglers Arsenal, who suffered a 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park.
In other Tottenham news, Frank Lampard believes this 23-year-old is a self-made talent.
