Tottenham are leading the race to sign Wilfried Zaha after the winger turned down a new contract offer to stay at Crystal Palace, according to the Sun.

Zaha has been a long-term target for Spurs – he has been linked with a move across London a number of times over the last two years and Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a huge fan.

The 25-year-old has repeatedly voiced his commitment to Palace, claiming he is happy at Selhurst Park and isn’t interested in moving to another club.

But according to the Sun, Zaha has turned down Palace’s latest £120,000-a-week contract offer in a bid to secure a move away.

The winger apparently wants to test himself at a big club and is now being linked with Tottenham, Everton and Borussia Dortmund.

And the Sun’s report claims Spurs are leading the race to sign Zaha.

However, Palace will slap a £70 million price tag on their most prized asset, so Tottenham will have to smash their transfer record if they want to sign him.

The Sun’s story is certainly speculative, but it will be interesting to see if other outlets publish similar reports in the near future.



  1. Not worth anything like £70m so not going to happen.

    The transfer links to Spurs this summer have been bizarre:

    Bale, Modric all don’t fit Levy’s style and never going to happen
    Barrios, Plea, Shaqiri, Grealish, Gomes all totally underwhelming so God no
    Ndombele, Zaha, Grimaldo all over priced
    Rebic, Kovacic, Rabiot, Martial all rehashes of old rumours
