Spurs are going to have to fork out £70M if they are to secure a deal for Wilfried Zaha this summer, with the player himself desperate to leave Crystal Palace this summer.

The Ivorian international was a standout player for the Eagles last season as Roy Hodgson guided the club so an unlikely 11th-placed finish.

The same report also states that the winger has told the club that he is eager to leave this summer, and that his want to leave to down to his ambition to play for a bigger club than the Eagles.

Zaha has been a household name ever since he secured a move to Man United from Palace in the summer of 2012, a move that didn’t quite work out for the 25-year-old.

The wide-man struggled to hold down a first team place with the Red Devils during his stint at Old Trafford, with the player ending up back at Selhurst Park at the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

Since this return, Zaha has been in very good form, with the Ivorian managing to clock up 16 goals and 16 assists in his last 64 Premier League appearances.

The player’s fantastic ability to beat opponents and want to get forward at every given opportunity has seen him labelled as one of the most dangerous wingers in the league, and rightly so.

£70M for Zaha seems like a lot, however if Spurs are that desperate to land him, it surely seem like a reasonable price for the north London side as they look to build on the third place Premier League finish they managed last season.
