Tottenham Told How Much QPR Star Eberechi Eze will Cost This Summer:
After securing a top six finish on the final day of the Premier League season attention now turns to the summer transfer window and building for the new campaign.
Jose Mourinho will be delighted that the club qualified for the Europa League, but we all know that he will have his sights set on the Champions League next term, and rightly so.
A top four finish has to be the objective next season and if Spurs are to do that then they’ll need to strengthen in the transfer market.
With funds likely to be limited, it’ll be essential for the club to sign players who have are high in potential as they look to turn promising prospects into top Premier League players.
Several hot prospects are being linked with top clubs this summer, but none more than Queens Park Rangers star Ebere Eze.
The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the EFL this term after scoring 14 goals and grabbing nine assists for the Hoops.
That has led to plenty of interest in the player from the likes of Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and West Ham United.
However it’s thought that Spurs would be leading the way to sign him.
That said, Eze will not come cheap.
Reports from The Sun have suggested that Jose Mourinho’s side will need to pay £20million to sign the attacking midfielder.
Leeds United are also said to be keen on bringing him to Elland Road, however the chance to link up with Jose Mourinho in his birth city of London could be hugely appealing.
GIVEMESPORT’S Phil Spencer says…
What a player Ebere Eze is.
After being released from Millwall as a teenager, it seemed that the midfielder’s dream of becoming a professional footballer might not happen.
But after being given a chance at Queens Park Rangers it seems that he’s tipped for the very top.
The 22-year-old has absolutely everything to be a top attacking player, and he’s fully deserving of a chance to challenge himself in the Premier League.
A move to Tottenham Hotspur would be a great platform to excel, however the only question mark is over how much of an opportunity he’d get in North London.
For me, I think he needs to move to a side such as Leeds United or Newcastle United where the team can be built around him.
He’s certainly capable of playing for a top six side, but will need the chance to learn and adapt before he can hit the ground running.
