Tottenham backed to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer by former Crystal Palace owner

Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan, believes that Wilfried Zaha could be Tottenham bound this summer.

Zaha has reportedly been a target for Spurs for over two years, with the club previously seeing offers for the winger turned down by Crystal Palace (The Athletic).

The 27-year-old has been one of the most consistent wingers in the Premier League since returning to Selhurst Park following his short stint at Manchester United.

However, the Ivory Coast international has been priced out of a potential big move by Palace after putting pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Eagles back in 2018 (Sky Sports).

Speculation over Zaha’s future has unsurprisingly picked up again this summer, with Roy Hodgson admitting that the winger could leave the club before next season (Independent).

Jordan believes that Daniel Levy could be tempted into making an offer for Zaha this summer as the wide man is within Spurs’ price range.

Speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT, the former Palace chairman said: “I could see him (Zaha) going to Tottenham.

“It depends how Mourinho wants to set them up next year and what he wants to do with them.

“He wants to go. I could see him going to Tottenham. He is in the price category that Daniel [Levy] might be willing to spend.”

Zaha has arguably had his poorest season in a while and on the back of the pandemic, it is possible that Palace’s asking price might have come down. However, with the winger still having three years left to run on his five-year contract with the Eagles, one would presume, he could cost at least around £50m. That would likely put us out of the running for his signature unless we get a massive cash influx through selling Ndombele.
