The 23-year-old came through the ranks at Selhurst Park before being snapped up by Manchester United back in 2013 for £15 million, but the winger found first-team opportunities limited with the Red Devils.
He only re-signed for Palace on a permanent basis back in 2015, but it now looks like he could be a Spurs player before the transfer window slams shut on August 31.
According to Sky Sports, Zaha is keen on the chance to play Champions League football at White Hart Lane, with a fee of £15 million mentioned.
It’d be a big blow to Palace, who lost fellow winger Yannick Bolasie to Everton earlier this month, and have lost their opening two Premier League fixtures.
But do Spurs really need him? And why Palace entertain this bid in the first place?
The internet has been collectively scratching its head:
Zaha to Spurs is odd. Seems like Tottenham have forgotten they're a CL club…

Zaha going to Spurs is a strange one…. why would they want to sell someone as versatile as Son too? ?

Townsend is better than Zaha. It would be madness for Spurs to sign him after letting Townsend go.

What's most gutting is Spurs fans don't seem to even want Zaha. Palace fans would be broken to see him leave again. What's going on #cpfc ?!

Don't understand why Spurs would spend £15million on Zaha when Boufal was available for £21million

Palace to sell Zaha to Spurs!? What on earth is happening in Selhurst. 4 of our top players being sold. Suicide, 100% relegation ?
— FootballBestBets (@BestBetFootball) August 25, 2016
Zaha is a top ?. Spurs are top banter though. We could sign Lucas Perez's Mum and still be better than them cunts.

If Spurs legit want Zaha for £15M I dunno what to say tbh ?
— Rants N Bants (@DSRantsNBants) August 25, 2016
Spurs have not had any width for the last 2 seasons and now bid for Zaha. And if Palace who just signed Benteke agree…then I'm lost

Zaha to Spurs for £15m??? I'd rather keep Chadli, thanks
