Zaha's new agent trying to 'broker' Spurs transfer

Wilfried Zaha could be in line for a big-money move to Tottenham with new agent Pini Zahavi attempting to broker a transfer from Crystal Palace to the north London side.

The Ivory Coast international is once again said to be determined to leave Selhurst Park during the transfer window, with Zaha keen to join a club that is capable of challenging for silverware and playing Champions League football.

The 27-year-old informed the club of his desire to leave during the summer transfer window and there was plenty interest in the player from the likes of Spurs, Arsenal and Everton, though no club was prepared to pay the £80m fee being demanded by Roy Hodgson’s side.

Zaha has now linked up with a new agent in the form of Pini Zahavi as he bids to engineer an exit, and according to the Mirror, the ‘super-agent’ has begun talks regarding a potential move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is seeking reinforcements to bolster his injury-ravaged squad, though the cost of a deal for the winger may make a switch across the capital unfeasible at present. Chelsea were also understood to hold an interest in the player, though their preference is thought to be a move for Borussia Dortmund’s England international, Jadon Sancho, though they will likely have to wait until the summer for that.

Meanwhile, Sky Germany are reporting that Zahavi has also offered the player to Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga champions in the market for additions in wide areas following the departures of veteran duo Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben last summer.

The German giants had set their sights on a deal for Manchester City star Leroy Sane, though could be tempted to bring Zaha to the Allianz Arena should the deal work for all parties involved, Palace having reluctantly accepted they will have to consider serious offers for the wantaway player this month.
