For most of the window, it appeared that Arsenal would be the most likely side to sign Wilfried Zaha this summer, but now the Crystal Palace winger is eyeing a move to their north London rivals.
Wilfried Zaha has informed Crystal Palace he wants to leave and is interested in a move to #thfc. His representatives have informed Spurs over the situation, but the north London club are not currently interested in the move.

The Independent report that Zaha would be open to a move to Tottenham this summer after a switch to Arsenal seems out of the question as the Gunners have all but signed Lille winger Nicolas Pepe for a club-record £72 million (per BBC Sport). However, the report indicates that Spurs are not interested in the Ivory Coast international, with Everton now the new favourites to sign the former Manchester United attacker.
As you would expect, Tottenham fans were eager to share their views on the latest report linking Zaha to Tottenham, with many supporters taking to Twitter. One fan even urged the club to put the money towards Gareth Bale instead, with the Wales international previously linked with a return to north London (via MARCA) prior to the collapse of his China move.
Here is what some fans had to say…
Lucas Moura > Zaha

I must be the only person reading this who thinks he is overrated and no worth £30m.
At best he makes the bench and can’t see £80m on bench. Rather spend that on bales wages

We can spend £80 somewhere else lol

We don’t want troublemakers, he doesn’t get how this works. He’s an Arsenal reject without even playing for them
