Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to back Mauricio Pochettino with the transfer window nearing to a close and make a move to sign Wilfried Zaha, according to The Standard.
The Crystal Palace winger is under contract until 2022 an earns around £100,000-a-week and is said to have recently rejected an improved offer due to him wanting to join a bigger club.
Zaha sent Tottenham fans into overdrive yesterday when he posted a cryptic message on Instagram and sparked rumours that he could be set to leave Crystal Palace.
However, Zaha is valued at around £70million by Palace and I would be amazed if Daniel Levy is prepared to spend that much money on a single player, given the club’s current financial position due to the £850million stadium development.
Zaha would provide another dimension to Tottenham’s attack, his ability to play as a natural winger along with his creativity would prove to be the perfect foil for Harry Kane.
Anthony Martial and Jack Grealish are two other players to have been regularly linked with a Spurs switch, however as things stand, we are still to make a summer signing.
