Tottenham Hotspur have concrete interest on Eberechi Eze from Crystal Palace

His impressive stint with the Premier League club has drawn the attention of several top clubs.

Ange to find a replacement for Lo Celso

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou is currently preparing his squad ahead of the new season. The Aussie tactician needs to add some players to the midfield amidst the potential exits of Pierre-Emile-Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso.

The former Queens Park Rangers manager, Marc Bircham, has compared Eze’s performance with Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling in an old interview with Sky Sports.

“He goes past players easier than Raheem Sterling did. Sterling would beat players with pace or do a trick or a chop – it’s all dynamic movements, but Ebere Eze just glides past players.”

Bircham has claimed that the English midfielder can dribble past opponents from his early days, which makes him better than Sterling. Eze is also known for his pace and ball control in the midfield, and he has also been the key midfielder to control games for the Eagles. Eze,26 is currently in his prime form and it is the best time for the Spurs to bag the midfielder.

Premier League rivals Manchester City are also vying for the midfielder in the summer, anyway, Spurs are gearing up for the deal by triggering the £60m and they could complete the deal before the Champions enter.
