Tottenham Hotspur are looking to finish the summer transfer window with some additional signings, particularly focusing on improving their midfield and attacking positions. The Lilywhites are understood to be interested in bringing Wilfried Zaha to White Hart Lane, but have been apparently been told by Crystal Palace that an offer of £25 million would be needed to have any chance of pushing the transfer through.
The 23-year-old returned to the Eagles from Manchester United two years ago, gradually becoming one of the better players at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace’s slow start to the season has seen Zaha keen to sign an improved contract to remain at the club, though their reluctance to open negotiations has caused questions to be raised concerning his future.
Tottenham decided to take advantage of the situation last week, testing the water with an initial £12 million bid. While the approach was quickly rejected, Zaha is eager to make the switch to Spurs, putting pressure on Palace to make a decision. The north London club have now had a second offer in the region of £18 million also snubbed, and are expected to have to increase their offer to around £25 million to convince Palace to sell.
