According to reports in The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a cash-plus-player bid for £60m-rated Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha, and Spurs fans have been quick to react with names of players they want instead.

The Mirror report that the north London outfit are willing to offer their neighbours from the capital Moussa Sissoko and money to try and bring the Ivory Coast international to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to add a new dimension to his attacking options.
However, they have also been linked with a whole host of other names this summer including Anthony Martial, Christian Pulisic and Malcom, and it seems as though they are among the names that would be preferred over a player that flopped when he made a big-money move to Manchester United previously.
Tottenham supporters, some of whom have reacted to a bizarre link with a prolific centre-forward, took to social media to give their thoughts on the latest transfer rumour, and while one said “I like Zaha but would prefer Pulisic or Martial”, another said “why get Zaha when you can get Malcom or Pulisic for cheaper”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I like Zaha but would prefer Pulisic or Martial
Grealish will be a good player for us if he knuckles down

Ikr that’s what I’m thinking, why get Zaha when you can get malcom or pulisic for cheaper

Buying Zaha when you could get Pulisic or Malcom for similar $ is crazy
— Zaddy Smith (@TheSillyman) July 19, 2018
Makes sense that. Let’s not pursue Malcom for £30m and let’s try and get Zaha from a pre rival who value him at at least £50m…

Same here . Not what we need really. With martial he has ability to play up top , not sure zaha does

Zaha is a decent player but from being linked with Martial to now getting Zaha is an L for Spurs.

Ok man it was just a question.
I’d rather we went in for Martial before Zaha to be honest aswell

If we’re gonna spend 60 mil on Zaha and 30 on Grealish why don’t we just buy Bale or Martial
