Tottenham Hotspur have pulled out of the race to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha according to The Mirror.
The Ivory Coast international has just enjoyed a strong season, scoring nine goals and assisted three despite suffering with injuries at the start of the campaign.
Zaha has now been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park this summer, with Chelsea and Tottenham reportedly interested, but according to the latest report, Spurs have been put off by his £75million valuation, putting Chelsea in the driving seat.
Spurs are yet to make a signing this transfer window and fans are growing frustrated as their rivals are splashing the cash on top talent which will take them to the next level.

Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest revelations surrounding the potential Zaha transfer on social media and it’s clear to see they’re divided on whether he is worth Crystal Palace’s valuation.

Is Zaha worth £75m? No. But if Chelsea are willing to pay it you can’t blame Palace for asking. What’s news here? Do I blame Levy? Absolutely not. If Zaha wants Tottenham, he’ll make it happen, if not, it’s just money and we’ve lost nothing. Pochettino wants genuine commitment.

To Mr. Levy,
Yea it would be a great to buy a top striker for only 50m! BUT, not these days!! Even 75m for Zaha is a steal!! A top defender is 70m nowadays!
If u miss out on Zaha like u did on Willian!! u might be finished at Tottenham.

Been a great window, hasn’t it?

Zaha is not worth anything near 75million. You can’t blame levy for this ridiculous over valuation.

Makes me laugh that we value 75million for a defender in the last year of his contract – and seem surprised that Palace value there best player on a similar level

@SpursOfficial have withdrawn from every race to sign anyone. We won’t sign a single player before the season starts!!!
