Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has reportedly rejected a new £125,000-per-week contract to keep him at Selhurst Park, the Mirror report.

The new deal would’ve made Zaha Palace’s top earner, however, it is believed that the forward’s desire to play in the Champions League stopped him putting pen to paper over a new contract.

The 25-year-old played a key role in guiding the Eagles to safety last year, and the Premier League Player of the Month for April is closely being followed by Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as they prepare an offer for the Ivory Coast international.

Tottenham were linked with a move for Zaha in January, with Palace valuing their forward who found the back of the net nine times last season at around £60 million.

Zaha’s current £100,000-per-week Palace deal runs until the summer of 2022, so Tottenham will need to place a bid close to the Eagles’ valuation if they are to sign the forward this summer.
