Wilfried Zaha Set For A £50m Move To Man City

Wilfried Zaha is one of the best attacking players in the Premier League, and there is no surprise that Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are among the clubs linked with the Crystal Palace winger in the summer transfer window.

The veteran Englishman took over from the sacked Frank de Boer with the Eagles in a perilous position but will feel a keen sense of redemption after leading his boyhood club to a highly-creditable finishing place of 11th.

They will attempt to make a quick return from the Championship next term - having been relegated by Southampton's midweek win at Swansea City - and Moore, who will meet the board this coming week, has made a compelling case to be entrusted with that responsibility.

The first clear-cut chance of the game came 13 minutes into the second half when a well-worked free-kick saw Ruben Loftus-Cheek collect Zaha's low cross and force a good save from Foster.

The Eagles finally broke the deadlock in the 70th minute.

It was then Andros Townsend's turn to spurn an excellent opportunity to give Palace the lead, but he slipped and skewed his driven effort wide when put through by Zaha. With Van Aanholt's overlaps on the left repeatedly stretching West Brom, the left-back found time and space to cross towards Zaha, who tidily volleyed home.

The England worldwide shined when given his chance last Saturday against Stoke, as Palace confirmed their status in the Premier League for another season with an excellent comeback win, which relegated Stoke in the process.

There are no lingering doubts about the player's quality now, however, and his blistering run in April saw him pick up his very first Premier League Player of the Month.
