Those who think Zaha is all pace and nothing else can't have watched him properly this season. He has a lot of tricks in his bag and is great at working space for a cross or shot in tight areas just as much as having the pace and power to counter. Also got a fair bit of practice at centre forward too.
He outgrew Palace in all honesty this season. Seems he might have realised that. He matured and became their talisman, carrying them very often.
Even Pep rates him highly. Name dropped him in that post season MNF with Gary Neville.
I'd prefer Martial but Zaha would be a huge signing, and one 100% ready to go. Zaha would thrive alongside better quality players IMHO.
If he's competing with Son and Dele for a starting place I can see him turning his nose up. He allegedly threw his toys out of the pram with the wages we were offering last season so I doubt he undervalues himself. We won't pay 70m for Pulisic so don't think we'll get near what Palace would want.
