Tottenham eye £25m+ swoop for PL star, will sell misfit duo to make room

Posted by

Tottenham will reportedly reignite their interest in Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this summer, but could sell two players to make it happen.

Spurs continue to lead the chasing pack in pursuit of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table as they look set to fall short in the title race again but continue to solidify their spot in the top four.

In order to make that next step up, Mauricio Pochettino will undoubtedly be scouring the transfer market this summer to bolster his squad, and it appears a familiar name is set to be on the agenda again.

According to Bleacher Report, Palace star Zaha is likely to be on their radar again this summer after Spurs had a £25m offer turned down in January.

However, it’s added that the bid was considered and so perhaps a slight increase could seal the deal and allow the Ivorian international to make the switch to White Hart Lane.

Tottenham are keen to make it happen, as the report adds that both Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela could be at risk of being sold in order to make space in the squad and raise further funds.

It simply hasn’t worked for Sissoko since his £30m move from Newcastle United last summer, and the French international will surely be available to buy at the end of the season and in all probability in a cut-price deal as his value would likely have dropped.

Meanwhile, after an impressive start to the campaign which saw him contribute two goals and seven assists in 14 games in all competitions, Lamela has been absent for much of the season with a troublesome hip injury and was ruled out for the rest of the year earlier this week. In turn, he could be at risk of being moved on now too as he enters the last year of his contract.

Zaha has scored five goals and provided eight assists for Palace this season, and the time may well be coming where he tests himself at a higher level and gives Pochettino a new dynamic in attack.
