Tottenham have been linked with a move for Queens Park Rangers star Eberechi Eze for several months now (Sun).
The youngster has enjoyed a fantastic season in the Championship, with ten goals and eight assists to his name so far across all competitions (transfermarkt.com).
However, rumours regarding Tottenham’s move for Eze have died down over the past few weeks, while links with other names like Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Daily Mail) and Nabil Fekir (Don Balon) have hit the headlines up.
Could that indicate that Spurs’ interest in the 21-year-old has cooled down? Not according to Football.London’s Alasdair Gold.
The journalist insisted that Eze continues to be very much on Tottenham’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window.
However, he did insist that the Lilywhites do face some hurdles in getting a deal over the line as the QPR star will want to play regularly and Spurs are fairly well stocked in attacking midfield.
When asked if Eze was one of Tottenham’s targets this summer, Gold said: “He’s a very talented player and Tottenham have scouted him during the season.
“They also have a really good relationship with QPR and that will help with any potential negotiations. On top of that he’s a Base client and Spurs have good links with that agency.
“The main hurdles for me are that Tottenham are packed with attacking midfield options right now and there will be competition for Eze.
“The 21-year-old will want to continue playing regular first team football and it might be that Spurs would have to pay the money and then loan him straight out.
“Would that be something they could afford to do this year with all of the financial issues surrounding football and the huge gate receipt losses taken even with the season resuming.
“Spurs have to decide whether, like Steven Bergwijn, he’s too good a young player to pass up on or whether this year it’s just not doable.”

Based on various reports, it did seem as if we were nailed on to move for Eze before the COVID-19 crisis stuck. However, we are likely reevaluating our transfer targets this summer at the moment and are unlikely to make decisions until the financial impact of the crisis becomes clear.
