Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly ended their interest in signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace due to the asking price for the second consecutive year.
The North London outfit want to back Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market this summer having made no signings in the last two transfer windows.
Spurs have been targetting Wilfried Zaha for a while and apparently have a decent chance as the 26-year-old exciting winger has expressed his desire to leave Selhurst Park and play for a club participating in the UEFA Champions League.
Regardless, Crystal Palace won’t let him leave on the cheap and have slapped a £100m valuation on him. Zaha still has a whopping 4 years left in his contract with Palace having signed an extension in August in a contract worth £130,000-a-week.
The deal came about after a couple of teams tried to sign him last summer. As at then, Tottenham were unwilling to meet the £70m valuation placed on the player’s head.
The North London club are still not ready to meet the recent valuation considering that their club record signing Davinson Sanchez was signed for £42m in 2017.
Regardless of Tottenham’s refusal to spend that much, Zaha will continue to attract major interest from other suitors after another impressive Premier League season with 10 goals and 5 assists.
