Oliver Glasner wants to block Crystal Palace exit for Eberechi Eze

Tottenham have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze as Oliver Glasner wants to block his exit.

According to a report from Fichajes, Tottenham are looking to reinforce their squad ahead of next season, and Ange Postecoglou has his eyes set on Eberechi Eze. The English international’s exceptional performances have resulted in a lot of interest in his services. Spurs are ready to put their foot on the accelerator to sign him, but they have a major stumbling block in their way.

Eze joined Crystal Palace back in the summer of 2020 from QPR, and he has not looked back since. He has established himself as one of the stars of the Eagles and contributed towards 17 goals (11 goals, 6 assists) in his 31 matches during the 2023/24 season.

The attacking midfielder’s impressive rise has resulted in a lot of interest. Tottenham are one of the clubs that seem to be quite serious about their pursuit of the 25-year-old’s services. They are all set to start negotiations with Crystal Palace for Eze in the coming weeks.

His consistent performances for the Eagles in the English top flight and his ability to feature on the flanks as well as a number ten is why Spurs are keen on signing him. Eze’s arrival will result in competition for James Maddison and it will also give them another option out wide.

Oliver Glasner wants to block Eze’s exit amidst interest from Spurs

Spurs have already held initial talks with the player’s representatives regarding a potential transfer. Tottenham had even invited his family to watch the North London derby, and they are now set to open talks with the Eagles.

While Spurs are quite serious about signing the 25-year-old, they are not going to find it easy to land him at the club. Oliver Glasner, who took charge of the Eagles towards the end of February, is keen on having Eze in his squad for his first full season at the club.

Glasner wants to block a potential exit, and Crystal Palace are unlikely to let him leave on the cheap. They have set a minimum asking price of £60 million for his services and have no intentions to negotiate a lower price. As a result, Spurs will have to meet their demands if they want the English sensation in their squad.
