Tottenham have ended their interest in signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace, after the Eagles valued their prize possession at a whopping £100m.
Spurs have been long-standing admirers of the 26-year-old winger and feel as though he would fit into their system perfectly, however are not willing to break their club record transfer fee by signing him just months after moving into a brand new £1bn stadium.
Having not made a single transfer in two years, Tottenham are ready to support manager Mauricio Pochettino in this summer's window.
The north Londoners were reportedly prepared to offer Palace around £70m for Zaha's signature, but with the Eagles demanding £30m more, it has priced Spurs out of a deal and they have subsequently ended their interest in the Ivory Coast international.
Zaha still has four years left on his current contract at Selhurst Park - which is worth £130,000-a-week - so anyone wishing to prize him away from south London will have to be willing to part with a nine-figure sum.
Spurs are known for their strict transfer policy, with chairman Daniel Levy famously stringent when it comes to bringing in new signings. Defender Davinson Sanchez remains the club's most expensive signing, after he joined from Ajax for £42m back in 2017.
One player Tottenham are reportedly keen on bringing to north London, though, is out of favour Barcelona winger Malcom. The 22-year-old has struggled to nail down a starting spot at the Camp Nou since joining the club from Bordeaux last summer, with the Catalans ready to offload him for the right price.
Malcolm would cost Spurs around £60m, but it could be worth the gamble considering his age and the potential he has, regardless of how this season has panned out.
