Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha has been compared to Brazil star Neymar as Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur continue their pursuit of the wing-wizard.

Zaha has been in impressive form during pre-season for Crystal Palace following an outstanding 2017-18 English Premier League season in which he directly contributed to 14 goals in 29 games.

The 25-year-old's form has attracted strong interest from the Eagles' London rivals and teammate Jonny Williams believes that his departure will leave a massive void.

“I just think he'll be such a big miss [if he left],” Williams told Express Sport.

“I don't think it's possible to replace him. I think the effects he has single-handedly on games, as I saw against Reading [in a pre-season fixture], he just takes it into his own hands with the responsibility to win games by himself.

"His ability is up there, it's the best I've seen and always has been. I think he's got that ability to go round people like they're not there and he just seems to enjoy it with all his tricks.

“He reminded me of Neymar against Reading to be honest. He's just a joy to watch and play alongside," he concluded.
