Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to snap up Crystal Palace wonderkid Wilfried Zaha as their scouting team step up their assignments on the player, according to the Daily Mirror.

Zaha has been in sublime form for the Eagles so far this season and it appears that despite Spurs being the main contenders for the England under-21’s signature, rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are also in the hunt for the pacey winger.

Palace set their asking price at a whopping £20million for their prized asset last week but it appears Spurs would be happy to pay an original £10million plus add ons for the hottest youngsters around.

The Daily Mirror also report that former Arsenal assistant manager, Pat Rice, has been to watch Zaha twice in recent weeks along with representatives from Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester City amongst others.

It seems Palace will struggle to receive their £20million target, however with the amount of competition for Zaha’s signature; they may not fall too far short. I know that every Eagles fan will simply say ‘He’s just too good for you!’

    If Dougie Freedman signs a new contract at Selhurst – Zaha will stay a Palace player come January.

      Well even if Dougie stays then Zaha will still go because his desire is to play in the premier league so as Palace aren’t in a serious contention for promotion he will be playing for spurs after January

    If Palace let Dougie go and sell Zaha whilst in the mix for promotion, it will just reiterate that Palace are always a selling club & not interested in going back into the top flight of football. We will freefall down the Championship if this happens.

    Why do people focus on the 20 million figure! Read between the lines…. HE’S NOT FOR SALE!! 20 mil, basically you have to offer a stupid amount to buy him.
