Tottenham are keen on signing Evberechi Eze in the summer as a replacement for Dejan Kulusevski if the winger returns to Juventus.

According to Fichajes, Eberechi Eze has emerged as a summer target for Tottenham. The north London side are looking at the 24-year-old Premier League winger from Crystal Palace as a replacement for Dejan Kulusevski. The Swede could return to Juventus when his loan spell ends.

Tottenham fans will want the season to end now, as it has been a disastrous show for the north London side. Their defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend ended any chance of Champions League qualification, and they are in danger of finishing in Conference League spots.

That is not ideal for a team of their stature, who fought tooth and nail to finish in the top four this season. One key element of their performances has been the no-show from their most expensive signings, including Richarlison and Yves Bissouma.

Only Harry Kane has performed to everyone’s expectations, and Tottenham will look to make drastic changes in the summer. However, before they look for quality addition, there’s also the looming issue of Dejan Kulusevski. The Swedish attacker ends his loan agreement with Spurs. And there are doubts whether they will take up the buy option.

One of the clauses that made the option an obligation was Tottenham’s ability to qualify for the Champions League. With that out of the picture, the situation with Kulusevski has changed, although Spurs have remained keen to sign him permanently for a long time.

If they decide to let him return to Juventus, Tottenham may have to find a reliable replacement for the Swede. Eberechi Eze has emerged on their radar, with the Crystal Palace star a shining light for the Eagles this season.

After the weekend’s action, the 24-year-old winger is Palace’s top scorer and is looking to end the season strongly. However, with 2 years left on his deal, there’s a door slightly open for rivals to swoop in.

Eze has a reported value of under £30 million. But Palace could depend significantly more for the 24-year-old Premier League winger. Tottenham could consider making an offer as they might see the money as a major long-term investment in a brilliant talent. Moreover, he’s not the only Palace player they are keen on, with Marc Guehi also a big target.

If he became available, Eze would have several other clubs coming in with offers. Hence Tottenham may have to dig their heels to convince the player about the prospect of playing for them. However, if a Champions League-playing club come in, Spurs may find it difficult.

Tottenham are keeping their options open with other options like Allan Saint-Maximin and James Maddison. However, Eze is younger than those and may have a better future in the coming years. For now, there might only be a mild interest, although things could accelerate as we approach the opening of the transfer window.

    It’s ridiculous any talk of any signings, until we have a new manager in place what’s the point. All this talk is to deflect the attention away from Levy himself. Last home game of the season , anyone going to the game please do not buy anything in the ground or in the Spurs shop. Levy out demonstrators have been spreading the word, financially is the only way to get Levy and Lewis’ attention.
