Tottenham Hotspur are reported to have pulled out of the race to sign Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mirror.
The paper claims that Spurs have thrown in the towel after Crystal Palace told them that they must pay £75million in order to land the 25-year-old.
Daniel Levy’s reluctance to spend that sort of money on a proven Premier League player has opened the door for rivals Chelsea to try and tie up a deal.
Zaha is reported to have his heart set on a move away from Selhurst Park and has turned down an improved contract to better the £100,000-a-week he currently earns. The Ivory Coast international has four years to run on his existing deal, which is why Palace believe they can command such a high fee.
The transfer window continues to get worse for Spurs fans. We have no new signings to date, Alderweireld is set to join Man Utd by Monday and now we have bottled spending on Zaha.
Daniel Levy is not a popular man at present.
