Information coming through from England is that Tottenham Hotspur are still hoping to lure Crystal Palace and Cote d'Ivoire striker Wilfried Zaha.

The Foxes are struggling in their 2016/17 EPL campaign and are touted as relegation candidates and that has prompted Spurs to chase the forward.

It was reported that Palace chairman Steve Parish described Spurs’ £12 million bid for his club’s young star last August as “ridiculous” as the Lily Whites made unsuccessful inquiries in January.

However, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a major fan of the 24-year-old and he is determined to land the Cote d'Ivoire international.


According to the Express website, Spurs are monitoring Zaha’s situation as well as Palace considering the South London club's struggle against relegation.

The website also reports that Pochettino will move for Zaha, who has been among Palace’s few bright sparks this season, whether his club survives relegation or stay in the Premier League.

On the other hand, Zaha is rated highly at Selhurst Park as the player declared himself for the Elephants squad ahead of the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.

The former England youth international signed a five-and-a-half year deal at Palace in 2015, but sources close to the former Manchester United striker believe that the European summer might be the time to move on.
