Pundit thinks Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will sign Premier League midfielder

Posted by

Tottenham hold genuine interest in the services of Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze.

The English midfielder was selected by Gareth Southgate to become a part of England’s squad for Euro 2024.

His fine performances for the Eagles have not gone unnoticed and some of the biggest Premier League clubs are interested in taking him away from Palace.

The Lilywhites are prepared to activate the £60 million release clause of the midfielder, who scored 11 goals in the Premier League last season.

Alan Hutton, a former Tottenham defender, claims that Daniel Levy is getting ready to shell out a big sum of money to recruit the England international.

Hutton, who spoke to Tottenham News, praised the Crystal Palace midfielder and backed the club to make a move for him this summer.

Hutton said:

“Yeah, I think so for someone who is so talented and at a good age.

“Normally when you get a little bit older, you get a little more restricted. You need to play in a certain type of formation, you need to be this sort of player and he just doesn’t look like that sort of guy.

“He just goes out and plays with a smile on his face, he plays with a lot of freedom and he’s got so much attacking quality. He can score goals, he can assist, these are the type of guys you need and he’s been rewarded for his good form by being picked for the England squad.

Tottenham have been backed to make a move for Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze.

“I think he could go and be a shining star so £60million is right. You look at some of the prices that are getting banded around now for players that aren’t as good, so I can understand that.

“If he’s going to be available for that price, I think Levy will spend it.”

Even though Eze extended his contract in November of last year, he could still be leaving Selhurst Park.

His current deal with the Premier League club runs until 2027.

Tottenham should not think twice to sign Eze

With teams interested in signing the midfielder, a good performance in the Euro this summer might make it even more harder for Palace to hold on to their prized asset.

Eze can not only provide goals from the midfield but also creativity and versatility considering he can play in a number of different positions.

He can add quality in the attacking third for Spurs and players like James Maddison and Son Heung-min will be delighted to form a partnership with him on the pitch.
