Tottenham Face Stiff Competition From Mega Rich German Side for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha

?Tottenham have reportedly been in pursuit of Crystal Palace’s winger Wilfried Zaha for many months now, having bids rejected for him in the summer. However, they now face very stiff competition from mega rich German side RB Leipzig.

The German side are owned by energy drink company Red Bull and have lots of money to their name, which is the reason for why other supporters in the Bundesliga dislike them as they feel they have bought their way to the top.

FC Augsburg v RB Leipzig - Bundesliga

RB Leipzig are most likely going to be in the Champions League next season and are looking to bulk up their squad with top quality players, with Zaha being on their list, according to the ?Daily Mirror.

The German outfit currently sit 2nd in the Bundesliga and are shock contenders for the title behind Bayern Munich. 

West Bromwich Albion v Crystal Palace - Premier League

Spurs had a reported £14m bid rejected for the 24-year-old in the summer and are likely to go back in for him again during the summer transfer window. 

They are going to need to up that bid though even more though this time, as with RB Leipzig interested Palace will most likely push for a higher price, and with the German side being mega rich they will have the funds to do it.

Tottenham Hotspur v Everton - Premier League

Zaha has scored five goals this season in the Premier League and has also got eight assists for the Eagles, which again would have pushed up his value and will make Spurs and RB Leipzig bid even more for him to get him to join their respective club.

The Ivorian is certainly in high demand and it is going to be a big bidding war between the clubs to see who comes out on top, and ultimately signs the pacey Palace winger.
