Rumoured Spurs target, Eberechi Eze, has revealed that he takes inspiration from how Spurs midfielder Dele Alli made the transition from League One to the Premier League and hit the ground running in the top flight.

Eze’s future has been subject to a lot of speculation over the past few months with reports installing Tottenham as the favourites to land the 21-year-old this summer (The Sun).

Despite the rumours linking Spurs to Eze dying down recently, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold insisted earlier this week that the QPR star still remains on Tottenham’s radar.

The attacking midfielder has now revealed that he would like to emulate the rise of Alli, as well as his England teammates Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling.

Speaking to The Beautiful Game Podcast (as relayed by Football.London), Eze said: “He’s (Dele) shown that it’s possible to go from lower league and fit right in and even become more than what people expected you to be.

“When you look at guys like that, just like Raheem [Sterling] and [Jadon] Sancho, you appreciate what they’ve done and you look at them and it’s a round of applause to you because they’ve actually done it.”

The skilful midfielder also opened up on his future ambitions and made no secret of the fact that he wants to win the biggest prizes in football.

He added: “I don’t really have a plan. I have goals and targets that I want to hit.

“I think It’s more about me applying myself every day and the belief I have in myself, the backing I have in myself I believe that I can reach the heights of football.

“I want to get to the Champions League, World Cup, I want to be playing all of this. Not just competing, but really winning the Champions League as that’s my aim.

“Wherever my talent or assets take me, that’s where it is. “I don’t want to put any limitations on myself.

“In terms of my ambitions I want to be at the top. I’m going to work as hard as I can and apply myself in any which way possible in order to reach there. I’m not going to stop until I get there.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Eze certainly sounds extremely ambitious and based on his words, it does look as though he will be pushing for a move this summer. However, based on how the reports linking us to the QPR star have died down over the last few weeks, I suspect that we are reconsidering our targets this summer due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe we will come to regret it if we allow Eze to be snapped by another Premier League club.
