Tottenham handed boost in pursuit of £20million-rated Championship attacker

Tottenham handed major transfer boost in chase for Eberechi Eze

With a number of players enjoying sub-par seasons, it is imperative that Tottenham bring about a change in system and personnel in the transfer window. One of the names doing the rounds is that of impressive Championship attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze.

According to The Sun (h/t Express), Spurs have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of the 21-year-old. Premier League rivals Crystal Palace and Sheffield United have dropped out of the race, giving us a clear run at the player.

Queens Park Rangers are said to be holding out for £20million. The price seems reasonable considering Eze has continued to build upon last season’s performances and cement his stature as a key component in the Hoops’ setup.

The youngster has made 39 appearances so far this season and has contributed to 12 goals and 8 assists. The midfielder can play in both the No. 10 and No. 8 roles and is capable of adding dynamism and drive to the Spurs midfield. Apart from being a good dribbler, Eze’s ability on the set-piece is also an added bonus.

Eze made his breakthrough at QPR under Ian Holloway and his impressive performances led to new manager Steve Mclaren not only featuring the player regularly but also handing him the No. 10 shirt. With Mourinho looking to rebuild Spurs, Eze is young and fits the profile of a hungry, quick and versatile attacker who can add an impetus from the midfield.

Tottenham have already made enquires to QPR about the availability of Eze, while our top scout Brian Carey has kept tabs on the player. The 21-year-old is seen as a replacement for the now-departed Christian Eriksen.

Once bitten, twice shy!

Strengthening our attack should be a key priority, especially with what happened this season. We failed to adequately replace Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente last summer.

With Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min both out injured, the onus has fallen on the likes of Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura. Although the duo tried their best, they are not natural strikers and looked like fish out of water.

It was two birds with one stone as not only did they struggle up front but their absence in their natural positions further weakened the team as a whole. The likes of Eze may be unproven at the highest level but as Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp have shown, with the right coaching, youngsters can go on to have a positive impact.

Tottenham should not be put off by Championship players. Liverpool signed Andrew Robertson from Hull City while Leicester City took a calculated gamble on James Maddison.

They have both gone on to become Premier League stars. Given time and perseverance, there is no reason why Eze cannot either.
