According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur have pulled out of the race to sign Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.
And it would be fair to say that the Spurs fans agree with their club’s stance after learning of the huge sum that it would take to sign Zaha this summer.
Indeed, Palace are believed to have placed a £100m value on the Ivory Coast international.
The 26-year-old scored 10 times and registered 10 assists in 34 Premier League appearances for the Eagles during the 2018-19 campaign.
At his best, Zaha is a brilliant talent capable of causing absolute havoc.
However, £100m is a lot of money for a player who has not shown that he can influence matches at the highest level.
Tottenham supporters are, obviously, desperate to see their club spend big this summer, but many agree that paying out for Zaha is not good business.

Good. Pathetic price for a good but not brilliant footballer.

so pleased to hear we are dodging a bullet for a massive under-achiever. Spurs please forget about Zaha it’s getting boring

Good. Stinking attitude. Not worth £100m anyway.
