Tottenham Hotspur ‘eye £60m move’ for 25-year-old playmaker

Tottenham Hotspur could allegedly move for Crystal Palace attacker Eberechi Eze during this summer’s transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen to explore the possibility of signing Crystal Palace attacker Eberechi Eze during this summer’s transfer window.

Eze, 25, has been selected in the England squad for Euro 2024, with the playmaker being rewarded for his excellent form at club level during the 2023-24 campaign.

The Englishman scored 11 goals and registered six assists in 31 appearances in all competitions last season, with his Premier League record standing at 11 goals and four assists in 27 outings.

Eze has a contract with Palace until June 2027, but according to the Daily Mail, there is a release clause in his existing deal at Selhurst Park.

The report claims that the buy-out fee is worth a minimum £60m, with add-ons potentially taking the figure to £68m.

Tottenham ‘could move for Eze this summer’

Tottenham are allegedly huge admirers of the attacker, with the North London club giving serious consideration to making a move during the summer window.

However, it is understood that a number of other Premier League clubs are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Eze impressed during England’s 3-0 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday night, with his performance in the friendly believed to have convinced head coach Gareth Southgate to name him in the squad.

Palace face a huge battle to keep hold of the playmaker, particularly if he makes a strong impression for the Three Lions at Euro 2024.

The Eagles are also fighting to keep hold of Michael Olise amid suggestions of interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.

Would Eze be a good signing for Tottenham?

Eze finished the 2023-24 Premier League campaign in excellent form, scoring five times and registering two assists in his final six appearances.

The attacker managed two goals and one assist in Palace’s 5-0 success over Aston Villa on the final day, and it is not a surprise that he is in the England squad for Euro 2024.

It is unlikely that the Eagles will let Eze leave for under £60m, but he is the type of player that Spurs should be looking at, and that price might even turn out to be a bargain.

Capable of operating in a number of different attacking positions, Eze is one of the most exciting talents in the Premier League, and he is only going to get better in the coming years.

A move from Tottenham therefore makes complete sense, but it would not be a surprise if sides even more powerful than them joined the race over the next few weeks.
