Alasdair Gold: Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze
According to Football. London journalist Alasdair Gold has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on talented Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze.
Eze’s narrative reads like a modern football fairy tale. Since his switch from Queens Park Rangers to Selhurst Park in 2020, his ascent has been nothing short of remarkable. True, his meteoric rise faced a few hurdles, with injury stints putting a brief dent in his trajectory during the 2021-22 season.
In the previous campaign, Eberechi Eze was an orchestra of elegance on the field, weaving his magic through Premier League defences. A total of 14 goal contributions – a culmination of 10 goals and four assists – underscored his impactful presence on the pitch.
Such a feat, particularly for young talent, speaks volumes about Eze’s ability to transcend challenges and deliver when it matters most. The story doesn’t end there, though. This summer, Eze’s journey took a triumphant detour as he earned a coveted England call-up.
The culmination of years of dedication and hard work, he clinched his first international cap in a resounding 4-0 triumph over Malta during the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers. Eze’s contract situation has come into sharper focus. With just two years left (Transfermarkt) on his deal at Selhurst Park, the spotlight on his future has intensified.
Delving into the intricacies, it’s hard to ignore the context in which this interest has emerged. Bryan Gil’s absence due to his recent groin surgery has left a vacancy that Eze’s versatility could fill seamlessly.
With Eze’s contract winding down, a tantalising prospect comes into play: Palace’s hand might be somewhat forced when it comes to the transfer fee. The ticking clock is a factor that Tottenham could potentially leverage to strike a favourable deal.
However, Eze will definitely have interest from elsewhere. Just not Tottenham. The English clubs will not let such a talented player escape their grasp and it remains to be seen who the competitors are.
