Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight that the club are reportedly working on a stunning triple swoop this summer.
Spurs correspondent Marc Benamram, who is a reliable source of news about the club, reported on his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon that the north Londoners are in hot pursuit of Crystal Palace attacker Zaha and Fulham left winger Sessegnon.
Benamram claims that Tottenham are also looking to secure a “marquee signing” ahead of their move to the new White Hart Lane in August.

Spurs have been strongly linked with Ivory Coast international Zaha, 25, in recent years but he signed a new five-year deal last May and is likely to cost well in excess of £40million.
At 17, Sessegnon is eight years younger than Zaha but is a precocious talent and recently cleaned up at the Football League awards, securing the Championship player of the season award ahead of teammate Tom Cairney and Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.
Tottenham fans are satisfied that their club are reportedly working on signing such top-notch players, despite the prohibitive price tags they will come with, with the comments including “would be amazing” and “my ideal summer”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Not bad. Not bad at all. Who’s on the out list Marc?

This would be my ideal summer tbh Marc, would Rashford be classy marquee? Or we looking at griezmann or dybala ????

If we do get bale, we would have him as 2nd striker like Dele and have him play deeper. Pipe dream.

What constitutes a marquee signing? I dare say Mr Levy and the fans will differ on that

Any idea on who that marquee signing could be? Would definitely take Zaha and Sessegnon.

Mate, if we signed those 2 players, they would make a difference to our team and squad. Need to really push to get them. 30 mil each. Cash in in 3 squad players. 50 mil back.

Bale. Please. Would be the happiest day of my Spursy life ????????

Not sure how we can sign Zaha when his wages at Palace are more than any player earns at Spurs.

Those two would be amazing but if we get Zaha is there a need for bale?

I do think we should peruse both. Zaha is lighting and also got the scoring touch whilst sessegnon is capable at LB or LW. I wouldn’t mind this.
