Wilfried Zaha Next Club Odds: West Ham Favourites
© PA

Wilfried Zaha could be on the move again this summer and the UK betting sites have drawn up a list of contenders to sign him.

Zaha left Crystal Palace when his contract expired last year, before signing for Turkish outfit Galatasaray. 

After an extraordinary 17-game winning streak, Okan Buruk’s side are on the verge of securing the Super Lig title. Zaha has made 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring 10 goals.

Yet his days in Istanbul could be numbered. Zaha is under contract until 2026.

But reports suggest the London-raised Ivory Coast international wants to return to England ahead of next season.

Where might Zaha end up if he does bid farewell to Galatasaray after just one season? We take a look at possible landing spots for the forward.

Tottenham Hotspur12/1

West Ham Lead Former Club Crystal Palace

West Ham have been linked with Zaha in recent weeks as they seek to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season. 

The Hammers are the favourites in this market as things stand, with football betting sites offering 5/4.

A stumbling block for both them and other suitors could be Zaha’s wages, but Galatasaray would be guaranteed to make a profit on a player they picked up for free 12 months ago.

Zaha has already had two spells at boyhood club Crystal Palace and a third should not be ruled out, especially if Michael Olise ends up departing this summer

However, Zaha may feel that returning to Selhurst Park so soon after leaving would represent a backwards step. Palace are nonetheless second-favourites at 6/4.

Aston Villa And Everton Seen As Candidates

Aston Villa will qualify for the Champions League if they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday, or if Tottenham Hotspur fail to defeat either Manchester City or Sheffield United. 

If they do get over the line, Unai Emery will need to add more strength in depth to his squad over the summer. Villa are listed at 3/1 to sign Zaha, who could slot in on the right, left or alongside Ollie Watkins up front.

Everton tried to sign the winger in the past and they may well renew their interest if he becomes available. 

However, the club is in a difficult financial position right now and that could limit their transfer dealings ahead of next term. Moreover, Zaha is not exactly a typical Sean Dyche forward.

Fulham Or Newcastle Could Make Move

Fulham have the option to extend Willian’s contract for another season, but the 35-year-old may end up departing this summer. That would leave the Cottagers in need of a new left-sided forward, the position that Zaha favours.

Fulham are listed at 4/1 to end up signing the former Crystal Palace man. 

Newcastle, who could be about to appoint Palace’s sporting director Dougie Freedman, would be an interesting choice at 6/1.

Zaha came to prominence under Freedman during the Scot’s time in the dugout at Selhurst Park. Newcastle may feel he can add something to a squad that looks set to compete in Europe again next season.

Saudi Pro League An Option With Leicester Outsiders

Zaha fulfilled his dream of playing Champions League football this season and he will want to have a second crack at the competition if he does leave Galatasaray. 

But if that is not an option, he could be tempted by the money available in the Saudi Pro League. Zaha is 8/1 on new betting sites to end up there.

Leicester City are priced at 10/1 to bring the 31-year-old to the King Power Stadium. However, the Foxes have been charged over alleged breach of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules. This could affect their transfer activity this summer.

Tottenham And Chelsea Seen As Long Shots By Bookies

Tottenham Hotspur are another club that previously attempted to sign Zaha and they are available at 12/1 to land him this summer. 

The Ivorian would probably be a back-up at Spurs, but he may well settle for that role given the size of the club.

Chelsea, however, is not seen as a probable destination for the wide man, as indicated by a price of 25/1 on betting apps

The Blues have made it their mission to sign up-and-coming talents, while they are pretty well stocked in attack as it is. It would be a huge surprise if Zaha ends up at Stamford Bridge.
