Tottenham ready to make £40million summer move for Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha.
Tottenham are set to go back to Crystal Palace with a £40million bid for Wilfried Zaha in the summer.
Roy Hodgson’s Palace will argue their 25-year-old winger is worth significantly more, particularly given the role he has played in their fight for survival. Palace have lost every league game they have played without Zaha this season — nine in total. But they moved out of the relegation zone when he returned from a knee injury in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Huddersfield, his first start since February 4.
Tottenham have chased Zaha for some time. They had their £12m bid rejected in the summer of 2016, an offer Palace chairman Steve Parish blasted as ‘ridiculous’. Spurs went back with another offer of £21m but that was also rejected.
Zaha’s contract lasts until 2022 and is worth around £100,000 a week.
