Report: 26-year-old int'l keen to join Spurs…but Everton 'likeliest' destination – originally posted on Sportslens.com
According to reports from The Independent, Wilfried Zaha has told Crystal Palace that he wants to leave the club this summer.
Everton have had a £55 million bid rejected for the Ivory Coast international, but the Toffees are expected to make a move for him again this summer.
The report claims that Everton are the ‘likeliest destination’ for the 26-year-old winger.
Interestingly, Zaha wants a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer, and the player’s agent has been in contact with the north London club as they are trying to push a deal.
Zaha has been a key player for the Eagles in the past two seasons, but he believes the time is right now for him to move elsewhere and test himself at a higher level.
The former Manchester United winger is interested in joining Spurs who can offer him Champions League football this season, something that can attract him over making a move to Everton.
Spurs are fully aware of his situation but they have no intention to pay £70 million for him, especially when Pochettino is working on other targets.
Tottenham’s stance seems sensible given they are trying to broker a deal for a top class player like Pualo Dybala from Juventus.
