Wilfried Zaha’s hopes of a big-money move to Tottenham Hotspur have been hindered by his decision to pick Ivory Coast ahead of England. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino remains a fan of Crystal Palace forward Zaha, who the club failed with a bid for last summer, as the Argentine lines up his main transfer targets. But Pochettino faces a tough task to convince chairman Daniel Levy that Zaha is still worth paying big money for after his decision to play international football for Ivory Coast, which will see him go to the African Cup of Nations every two years. Tottenham would have to break their transfer record and make Zaha one of their best-paid players to land the 24-year-old, with Palace valuing him at over £30million and preparing a new contract offer worth £110,000-a-week. Zaha missed four weeks of this season while he was away on African Cup of Nations duty with Ivory Coast and that, together with the money involved, is an unappealing prospect to Spurs.
