Tottenham are preparing a £40 million summer bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, according to the Mail.

Zaha is rated among the best players currently playing outside of the top six in the Premier League.

Spurs have reportedly held an interest for some time and have apparently already had two bids turned down for the 25-year-old.

The Mail believes Tottenham will test Palace’s resolve once again this summer with an offer in the region of £40 million.

However, the report claims Palace will likely reject the bid as they believe Zaha is worth far more.

Roy Hodgson’s side have lost every single Premier League game when Zaha has not featured this season, which demonstrates his importance to the side.

Mauricio Pochettino has often spoken about adding pace and trickery to his attack, and that was arguably accomplished in January with the signing of Lucas Moura from PSG.

That raises some questions: Do Spurs really need Zaha? Did the club sign Moura as an alternative or would the two play different roles at Tottenham?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see other top clubs move for Zaha given his recent form, so this story is sure to drag on through the summer.
