Tottenham Hotspur could look to the Championship for one of their marquee signings this summer with fresh reports emerging this week.
According to GiveMeSport, Spurs have expressed an interest in Queens Park Rangers hotshot Eberechi Eze with the club’s recruitment team infatuated by him following an impressive 2019/20 season.
It’s also claimed that Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the 22-year-old, though a bid is yet to be made for him just yet.
Would Eze be an upgrade on Dele Alli?
Eze’s numbers have been borderline exceptional this campaign – in 40 league starts, he has provided 12 goals and eight assists whilst averaging 3.1 dribbles, 2.4 shots and 1.8 key passes per game – via WhoScored.
No player in Mourinho’s squad can really match these numbers, only Kane and Son have managed more shots.
Ex-Spurs legend Les Ferdinand is the director of football at Loftus Road and has handed the young star plenty of glowing endorsements over the course of the season.
Speaking on ‘The Beautiful Game Podcast‘ back in March, the former striker said: “If you look at his footballing ability I could put him down as one of the best I have seen in terms of what I have been fortunate to play with in my career. When I see some of the things he does on a football and how comfortable he is on a football, I put him up there as one of the best I have seen.”
Whilst his manager, Mark Warburton has also raved over his performances in recent times, claiming that “there are no limits for Eze” and that he’s a hugely talented player.
It remains to be seen what sort of fee the young England U21 international would command during what is sure to be a different summer transfer window.
