Newcastle United are thought to be one of the teams seriously considering making more for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha. Wilfried Zaha has been a revelation for Crystal Palace this season and is currently one of the main reason for the club to be challenging for a play-off position. Even though the club are currently in the 14th position in the table, a look at the total point difference between them and the final play-off position reveal that they are not too far behind. Newcastle United’s interest in the player was first revealed in October, but it seems that they are very keen on stepping up their interest in the player.
Newcastle United have adopted a policy of signing the best young players both in England and France. It has been one of the main reasons for their revival after going down into the Championship a few seasons ago. They are currently in a great position to finish in the Europa league qualification places ahead of Liverpool, while they also remain in touch with the top four. Credit certainly has to go to Alan Pardew and his scouting staff, who seem to have made their next target as Wilfried Zaha. The 19-year-old is regarded as one of the best in prospects in world football.
There is certainly no doubt that Wilfried Zaha is an extremely promising talent, but Newcastle United need to hurry if they are to complete the signing. This is because Newcastle United are not the only team interested in securing the signing of Wilfried Zaha. Both Liverpool and Manchester United have shown interest in this youngster, who could cost anywhere up to £ 10 million. The prospect of immediate first team football at Newcastle United will certainly help Pardew persuade the youngster to sign for the Magpies.
