According to reports in The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to move for long-term target Wilfried Zaha again this summer and are confident of signing the Crystal Palace winger, and Spurs fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
The Mirror says that the north London outfit are growing in confidence that they will get the 25-year-old at their third attempt of trying, although they could face stiff competition for his signature from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City.
The Times reports that Spurs are ready to bid £50m for the Ivory Coast international, who has scored four goals and provided a further two assists in 20 top flight outings for the Eagles this term, and who only signed a new long-term deal to stay at Selhurst Park last year.
Tottenham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one said “not good enough for us – he failed at Man U, he will fail again”, another labelled it as a “backwards step”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Backwards step …. anything to sell a paper !!

Where would Zaha fit? That move doesn't make any sense unless Sonny plans on leaving…

Said it before,will say it again. Not good enough for us-he failed at Man U,he will fail again. Palace is his level……

When we just got Lucas, and seem to have a good chance on Malcom? I find this very unlikely.

And his inconsistency? He's not exactly setting the @premierleague alight is he? He went to United and he flopped. Now compare that to Dele Alli who went from a lower league club to winning back to back PL young player of the year. Zaha is not even as good as @RyanSessegnon #COYS
