Eberechi Eze was linked with a move to Tottenham earlier this season but, going by recent reports, it does not appear as if the North Londoners are now at the front of the queue for the midfielder’s signature.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein claimed last week that Crystal Palace and West Ham United were the favourites to sign Eze this summer.
Meanwhile, Leeds United have reportedly stepped up their interest in the QPR star, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side said to have earmarked the 22-year-old as a target back in January if they were to get promoted to the Premier League.
The Sun now claims that Rangers accept that Eze has played his final game for the club and are ready to sell him this summer.
The report claims, however, that the Championship club are in no mood to sell him for a cheap price despite the coronavirus pandemic, given the amount of interest he is attracting.
Having seen Jarrod Bowen being bought by West Ham for £20m in January, it is said that they are expecting a similar fee for Eze.
Spurs Web Opinion
Many Spurs fans seem to be convinced that Eze is the real deal despite not having watched him play more than a handful of times. The 22-year-old looks really good in highlight reels but the jury is out on how effective he will be in the Premier League. Eze strikers me as someone that likes seeing a lot of the ball and tends to play the game at his own pace. I am not sure he will be a particularly good fit for our counter-attacking style of play.
