Tottenham want Wilfried Zaha as Chelsea see bid rejected by Crystal Palace for in-demand winger

Chairman Daniel Levy has not given up on signing the Crystal Palace winger ahead of the transfer window closing next Thursday.

The Eagles believe they are in a strong position — and have turned down an offer from Chelsea of £30m cash plus Danny Drinkwater.

But Spurs would be prepared to offer a further £15m in add-ons, plus a massive sell-on clause.

Tottenham — who have yet to make a signing this summer — are also looking to offload fringe players such as Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura.

Spanish side Real Betis have already made an enquiry for winger Moura, who only signed from Paris Saint-Germain for £25m in January.

Spurs initially stepped back from chasing Zaha as they believed a deal would take a minimum of £70m, so moved on to Jack Grealish.

But with Aston Villa demanding £40m for a player still relatively unproven in the Premier League, Spurs are now once again looking at Zaha — who would be tempted to move to North London.

The Ivory Coast international, 25, has been determined to prove himself capable of playing for a top club ever since he flopped at Manchester United.

Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate, 28, is also looking to complete a £10m switch from West Ham.
