Tottenham to launch new attacker bid after £12m offer rejected - report
By Harry Sykes
Tottenham have reignited their pursuit of Wilfried Zaha after having a £12million bid rejected last summer, according to a report.
The Sun claims Spurs, Inter Milan and German outfit RB Leipzig will launch bids to prise the wide attacker from Crystal Palace in the next transfer window.
It is said that White Hart Lane manager Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of Zaha and is ready to sanction another move after his side had an offer rejected last year.
There were reports that Tottenham would make another push for the 24-year-old in the January window but Palace were able to hold on to the player who has emerged as one of their star men.
Zaha scored a superbly taken goal in Palace’s 2-0 win at West Brom on Saturday to ease some of his side’s relegation concerns.

In total, he has scored five goals and supplied an eight impressive assists in 25 matches in all competitions, with his contribution to 13 goals all coming in 24 league fixtures.
Palace are likely to face a losing battle to hang on to Zaha if they are unable to maintain their top-flight status this season.
Sam Allardyce’s side have a tally of 25 points from 27 league matches, which leaves them three points clear of the drop zone.
