Tottenham linked with a move for player that Arsenal could not get over the line but money could be an issue
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham and Arsenal have one of the biggest rivalries in English football and each team is constantly trying to do better than the other.

This also involves beating the other team to a signing a player that they have both targeted.

There have been a few players that both North London sides have wanted in the past and it seems that history is repeating itself.

A new report from GivemeSport citing a Journalist on Twitter, claims that Tottenham has become the latest team to show interest in Wilfried Zaha.

The winger is a long-term target of Arsenal and the Gunners just failed to land him last summer.

He hasn’t had the best of seasons in this campaign, but he remains a top-quality player.

His move to Spurs might, however, be made impossible due to finances.

Zaha is reportedly valued at £80m, according to Standard Sports and that might be too much for Spurs giving that they have lost a ton of money due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The report from Givemsport further claims that Arsenal and Tottenham are not the only teams looking to sign Zaha and adds that Newcastle is also a possible destination for the Ivorian.

Spurs will be hoping that they can make the Champions League at the end of this season because it would give them more money for transfers and make a huge signing a possibility if it could be done on terms.

If Sane is £54m with add ons, Zaha is worth £35-40m tops.

The days of £50mil+ for players are over (for now) unless bloody exceptional players.

Not convinced by Zaha, just seems to be something missing from his game. Much too expensive for us anyway. Sort of player that City buy and stick on their bench.

What’s missing is good players around him. He’d have that at spurs. I’ve always rated him.

I’d love to see Saint-Maximin (Newcastle), David Brooks(B’Mouth) or Adama Traore (Wolves), first two are more in reach than Traore of Wolves, but any one of these are better options than Zaha and should be cheaper.
