Tottenham end interest in Zaha, while Arsenal prepare swap deal

Palace want £100m

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.

Arsenal preparing swap deal

Although Tottenham are no longer in for Zaha, he could still be heading to north London, with Arsenal reportedly tabling a swap deal which would see THREE Gunners players move in the opposite direction.

Arsenal are set to offer Calum Chambers, Carl Jenkinson and Reiss Nelson, alongside £40m to obtain Zaha's signature. All three players have seen chances at the Emirates limited in recent seasons, with Chambers and Nelson spending the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Fulham and Hoffenheim respectively.

Forgotten man Jenkinson remained put in north London but only made three league appearances throughout the whole season.

One stumbling block for Arsenal is that Zaha only wants a move to a club competing in the Champions League next season, which means that they'll have to beat Chelsea in next Wednesday's Europa League final (thus earning qualification to the UCL) to meet the 26-year-old's demands. If they don't, a deal looks unlikely.

With 10 goals and five assists to his name this season, Zaha won't be short of options during this summer's window; Liverpool are also thought to be interested in his services, so that could be another potential move.
