Tottenham Hotspur have ended their pursuit of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, according to the London Evening Standard.

Zaha has been linked with Spurs a number of times over the last couple of years with Mauricio Pochettino thought to be a big fan of the former Manchester United winger.

There has been some talk of Tottenham potentially reviving their interest in Zaha this summer, but those chances have been dashed if a recent report is to be believed.

The Standard claims Spurs are no longer interested in Zaha after learning Palace value him at £100 million.

Essentially, Tottenham would have to break their transfer record by around £60 million to have any chance of signing the 26-year-old.

Zaha has been in exceptional form for Palace this season, scoring 10 goals and providing 10 assists in 34 Premier League appearances.

He has been tipped to return to a top six club despite failing at Manchester United when he initially left Crystal Palace.

While Zaha would certainly add quality to Spurs’ attack, the Londoners are likely prioritising other positions such as central midfield and full-back.
