Maddison’s backup or competition? Tottenham identify Eze as transfer target

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to add quality to their roster as they express potential interest in Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze, per Football Insider.

We have lived one story of Arsenal Academy rejecting becoming a Spurs legend in the modern Premier League era, and as they say, history repeats itself, and the Lilywhites have an opportunity to do so if they manage to bring Eberechi Eze to White Hart Lane this summer. 

Spurs have a keen need to bolster the attacking midfielder roster in the offseason as James Maddison has not been his start of the season self since his injury, which has hurt the offensive sequences for the North Londoners. Adding competition would be a wake-up call for the former Leicester City star and could also ensure the squad has a qualitative back-up if Maddison were to get injured yet again.

Will Levy splash the cash? Spurs face big decision for creative midfielder Eze

Any transfer for Eberechi Eze would not come easy, as alongside Tottenham, Manchester City are looking to sign him this summer. For any move to conclude, both clubs would need to meet the hefty asking price that the Eagles have set for the former Reading star. 

Crystal Palace are looking at a fee in excess of £60 million to sell their midfield star. It would be an intriguing prospect to see whether Daniel Levy agrees to pay such hefty bucks for the midfielder.

He would bring the creative edge that Tottenham have lacked at times and would ensure he added to the potential that the squad possesses. However, it is to be seen whether he prefers a move to North London over the prospect of joining Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
