Wilfried Zaha is one of England’s brightest prospects, and speculation surrounding the 20-year-old's future continues amid interest from several Premier League clubs, including the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

 

How good can Zaha be, though?

The pacey winger has been catching the eye of plenty of top-flight managers from a young age. It's clear he has the potential to be one of the best products England has produced in the modern-era.

 

Obviously, it's impossible to say how good he will be, but he has all the ingredients of a top, top player. Only time will tell, but with hype matching that of Theo Walcott’s move to Arsenal from Southampton as a 17-year-old boy, there will be pressure on Zaha to perform wherever he ends up.

A £20million price tag has been banded about in the press and for a 20-year-old, that's huge. With the Premier League's quota system in place regarding 'home-grown' players, young English talent comes at a premium - perhaps this justifies the hefty price tag?

Zaha is the type of player who likes to run at players using all his flair and trickery, dazzling the full-backs and getting in behind defenders. He will have to prove he can do this in the Pemier League on a regular basis if he is to be successful, all he needs now is the opportunity. 

Zaha can be as good as he wants to be. He's got the potential and all the right attributes to succeed in England's top-tier, but he has to keep his feet on the ground and work hard to reach a consistent level of performance. Will he fulfill his potential? Only time will tell.
