As Borussia Dortmund prepare to say farewell to Christian Pulisic, talk of a summer signing is already well underway. The need for another pacey attacker is clear, but many names are being linked with the German giants. One name being linked, especially in England, is that of Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha.
The electric Ivorian has been one of the best players in the Premier League for a couple of seasons now, let down only be a lack of numbers. His electric pace, willingness to run at opponents and eccentric skill on the ball makes him an excellent player to watch. For many Dortmund fans, he would be an excellent addition to an attacking force that is already one of the best in Europe.
The impressive form that he has shown for Crystal Palace will certainly draw many admirers, but we can expect to see some competition for the 26-year-old. Zaha, for his part, looks set to move on from Crystal Palace. After returning from a failed stint at Manchester United, a move back to a European giant has been on the cards given his electric performances for the Eagles.
However, it’s hard to know where he will go at this stage. Zaha has shown a willingness to move abroad in the past, but it’s easy to see large-scale English interest in him appearing in the near future. If Zaha does move to Dortmund, though, he’d make an excellent addition to an exciting front-line.
