Eberechi Eze open to summer move amid Tottenham links

Eberechi Eze has been linked with a move away from Crystal Palace this summer, and the Englishman is now open to an exit.

According to Give Me Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are keen on Eberechi Eze, and they have been handed a boost in their pursuit of the England international. The Crystal Palace star is valued at £68 million, and it will be interesting to see if Tottenham are willing to spend that kind of money on him.

The North London club have set their sights on Eze amid their need for more creativity and technical ability in the final third, and the 25-year-old could transform them in the attack. However, the £68 million asking price will be a major problem. Tottenham will have to improve the other areas of their squad as well, and they cannot afford to overspend on the England international.

Eze is versatile enough to operate as a central attacking midfielder as well as a winger. He will add more quality and depth in the final third, and his arrival will allow Tottenham to rotate James Maddison more often. They were overly dependent on Maddison last season for goals and creativity from the central areas. He could share that creative burden with his compatriot.

The opportunity to play for Tottenham will be quite attractive for the Englishman, and it would be a step up in his career. He will look to compete for trophies with the North London club and play in the UEFA Champions League in the near future.

Eze asking price could be a problem for Tottenham

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to follow up on their interest with an official proposal to sign the player. It is fair to assume that they will not want to pay £68 million for the Crystal Palace star, and it remains to be seen whether the two clubs can negotiate a more reasonable price.

The Eagles are under no pressure to sell the player, and they are rightly demanding a premium for him. The Englishman is an indispensable asset for Crystal Palace, and replacing him will be a major challenge. It remains to be seen how the situation develops.
