With Tottenham selling winger Andros Townsend to Crystal Palace, there’s a space for a wide player on board the good ship Tottenham. And what better place to get one from than the club now awash with wingers: Crystal Palace!
Tottenham have bid in region of Â£15m to sign Wilfried Zaha, according to his agent. Zaha keen, CL football etc. #CPFC want to keep him #THFC

This brought inevitable comparisons with the winger Spurs were attempting to replace.
Townsend is better than Zaha. It would be madness for Spurs to sign him after letting Townsend go.

Andros Townsend not good enough for Spurs but Wilfried Zaha is? pic.twitter.com/znUawyCvvs

Is he even good enough for Mauricio Pochettino’s new-look Tottenham side?
Not sure Zaha would get into the Spurs team?

Some supporters saw the opportunity to try to offload some of their own teams’ players. It’s not a jumble sale, chaps!
Zaha to Spurs if palace need a winger they can have markovic for a cut price of 25m

The potential transfer was a bit much for some, who preferred to just let it be.
I don't understand the Spurs-Zaha thing so I think I'm gonna guess it's not really happening and only devote brain to it after it happens.

Whether or not the transfer goes through, let’s all bask in Zaha’s wonderful potential.
