If various reports are to be believed, Tottenham will be making moves for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this summer.
Spurs tried to sign Zaha last August but Palace refused to sell. Mauricio Pochettino instead opted for Moussa Sissoko, and we all know how that turned out.
If some Tottenham fans were sceptical about Zaha, his excellent performance in Palace’s 3-0 Premier League win over Arsenal on Monday evening will have convinced a few of his credentials.
The 24-year-old ran rings around the Gunners at times, and laid on precise assists for the first two goals, one of which was scored by former Spurs winger Andros Townsend.
Zaha may lack the quality of the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, but it’s hard not to think Tottenham would be even closer to Chelsea with the Ivory Coast international in the squad rather than Sissoko.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Zaha’s display against Arsenal.
Wilfried Zaha already assisting goals against Arsenal, how could anyone not want to see this guy in a Spurs shirt next year is beyond me. 🤔

Can see Zaha joining Spurs & having similar contribution to Lamela, but fans will like him b/c Lamela was meant to be Bale & Zaha was nobody

Zaha really matured at Palace. If Spurs can nab him for £25 million would be a great signing. Would put chances on a plate for Kane.

Past and future Spurs players tearing Arsenal apart here. Townsend and Zaha have been awesome tonight.

Thus seems like a good time to mention for the 80th time that I would love Zaha for Spurs

We really need to snap up Wilfried Zaha. He's been a spark for Palace this season & great tonight. Poch would take him to the next level.

Zaha is seriously needed at Spurs. Just imagine what Poch could do to him, absolute wonders that is.

Very good from Zaha tonight. Spurs may just be leverage in contract talks, but he'd bring something next season without doubt.

I want to see Zaha at Spurs next season. Pay whatever, he'd be unreal under Poch. Ross Barkley would be nice also, no idea over who tho.

Zaha. Future Spurs baller. Saw he was up against Mesut Ozil so it was only naturally for him to take the piss. pic.twitter.com/t0N3rudeg2
