Tottenham Ready To Try Again For Crystal Palace Star Wilfried Zaha, Amid Rival Interest

Tottenham are plotting a fresh summer move for Wilfried Zaha.

The north Londoners remain interested in Crystal Palace’s star forward and are confident of winning the battle for his signature and landing their man at the third attempt.

Spurs are lining up this latest push despite the January arrival of £25million Brazilian winger Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain.

They are set to face stiff competition though, with Chelsea poised to firm up their interest and join the hunt to sign Palace’s 25-year-old talisman.

Manchester City are also keen and have made enquiries about Zaha.

Beating London rivals Chelsea and champions elect City to Zaha would be a statement signing for Spurs ahead of their move into their new stadium next season.

Zaha is back onto the radar of the Premier League’s big boys after recapturing his best form since returning to Palace in February 2015 after a disappointing two years at Manchester United.

The Ivory Coast forward will cost in excess of £50m, although his current £100,000-per-week deal runs until 2022 and Palace are determined to hold on to him.

He will be key to the relegation-threatened south Londoners’ hopes of staying up.

They are just one point above the drop zone with 11 matches to go, have not won a league game without him since September 2016 and he remains up to a month away from a return to action.

Zaha is currently out with a knee injury but has stepped up his rehab by resuming running and gym work.
