Alasdair Gold expects Tottenham Hotspur to move for Eberechi Eze next year

In an intriguing twist of the transfer saga, Alasdair Gold, the reliable Tottenham correspondent, has shed light on Tottenham Hotspur’s potential pursuit of Eberechi Eze, following Michael Olise’s decision to remain at Crystal Palace.

Gold’s insights suggest that Olise’s commitment to the Eagles could inadvertently benefit Spurs in their quest to secure the services of the talented attacking midfielder. Nonetheless, Gold emphasizes that a substantial sum will be required to tempt Eze away from the Selhurst Park nest.

The spotlight on Eze has intensified after his remarkable performances during the 2022-23 season for Crystal Palace. Such was his brilliance that the 25-year-old earned his debut for the England national team in June, a testament to his growing influence on the pitch.

With Eze demonstrating his readiness for a step up to a top-tier club, recent weeks have been abuzz with rumours linking him to Tottenham, a move that could reshape his career trajectory going forward.

The scenario took an unexpected turn, as Olise snubbed Chelsea’s advances in favour of a four-year extension with the Eagles. Gold’s viewpoint, expressed in a Football. London Q&A underscores that while Olise’s stay impacts Palace’s stance, the club’s determination not to lose both prized talents is evident.

Speaking about the situation, here is what Gold had to say about Eze to Tottenham

“From the aspect of Palace not wanting to lose both players, it affects that of course, but with Zaha also heading off this summer they’re going to ask for big money for Eze as one of their crown jewels if they’re willing to sell at all. Spurs love the player and he’s a CAA Base client – who represent many of their stars and Postecoglou – but there’s some talk of £70m plus being a starting point”

Gold draws a parallel with Richarlison’s acquisition, a player who thrived in a rotational role. While Eze’s signing would undoubtedly enhance the team, Gold suggests that Palace’s tenacity might pose a formidable challenge in the current transfer window.

Eze’s contract with Palace has a mere two years remaining, prompting speculation that next summer window presents a unique opportunity for Palace to command a substantial transfer fee. This is where Tottenham could pounce.
