Duo again after the same target.
Liverpool and Tottenham have joined the growing list of Premier League clubs interested in Crystal Palace prodigy Wilfried Zaha.
The 19-year-old winger has already made over 80 appearances for Palace in the Championship, scoring 7 times, and starred as the Eagles reached the Carling Cup semi-final last season.
Zaha is also wanted by newly-promoted duo Reading and West Ham, while Everton have shown an interest in the Ivory Coast-born youngster.
Palace are reluctant to lose Zaha, who has represented England at youth level and is expected to be named in Staurt Pearce’s 18-man Great Britain Squad for the Olympics.
The south London club have issued several statements warning that Zaha is not for sale, with boss Dougie Freedman keen for him to continue his development at Selhurst Park for at least one more season.
However, it is thought that Zaha is itching for a move to the Premier League and believes he can emulate former Palace star Victor Moses, who is wanted by European Champions Chelsea.
Spurs and Liverpool are both ready to bid for the star. Ironically, the two clubs are also battling it out for Gylfi Sigurdsson and Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge and Zaha could well be a further point of contention between the Merseysiders and north Londoners this summer.
Liverpool are eyeing fresh creativity and pace in their midfield, while Spurs chairman Daniel Levy seems have gone back to a policy of pursuing promising youngsters, following the sacking of Harry Redknapp earlier this month.
