Tottenham Hotspur are set to rekindle their interest in signing Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha in January. The north London club were keen on bringing the winger to White Hart Lane in the previous transfer window, only to be left disappointed after the Eagles rejected Spurs' approach in the summer.
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham will test Palace's resolve by making another approach for Zaha. He rejoined the club on a permanent deal in February 2015 following his disastrous spell at Manchester United.
Since then, the 24-year-old has been a key player for Palace. In the ongoing campaign, Zaha has managed three goals and has six assists to his name in 16 Premier League appearances. After the Eagles' disastrous campaign so far, Alan Pardew was shown the exit door and was replaced by Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park.
The former England manager is an admirer of Zaha and will be keen on retaining Palace's creative player beyond the January transfer window. Mauricio Pochettino is also an admirer of the ex-United man and rates him highly.
Tottenham signed Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou late in the previous transfer window. However, they have failed to impress at White Hart Lane and Son Heung-min is still attracting interest from Wolfsburg and Paris Saint-Germain.
Pochettino has set his sights on securing the services of Zaha, who can provide much needed support for Harry Kane in Tottenham's attack. The Argentine coach is happy with his current squad and labelled Zaha a "good player" when directly asked about his side's interest in Palace star.
"I don't want to speak about a player at another club. That was another rumour... But I like good players and he is a good player. But I don't like to start focusing on some names. Then you start a rumour," Pochettino said, as quoted by ESPN.
