According to the London Evening Standard Spurs look set to end their interest in Wilfried Zaha with Crystal Palace valuing the winger at an incredible £70million.
The article adds how the Tottenham hierarchy are determined to back Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer window this summer and Zaha is one of the high-profile targets they have been considering bringing in.
The Ivory Coast international enjoyed a superb season at Palace and was instrumental in keeping the Eagles in the Premier League and he fits Tottenham’s transfer remit of a young player who has more years at the top and, if need be, sell-on value.
Despite his status as an Ivory Coast international he he would still crucially count as a homegrown player in their Champions League squad next term due to coming through Palace’s academy.
The article adds however that Palace have no desire to sell their prized asset, though, and Standard Sport understands that they regard him in a similar bracket as Riyad Mahrez, who could soon be joining Manchester City from Leicester for £75m, and they planning to offer Zaha another new contract.
