A significant advantage has been granted to Tottenham Hotspur in their attempt to acquire Crystal Palace player Eberechi Eze. The England international was expected to be pursued by Spurs and Manchester City, but according to The Athletic, the Premier League winners are not going to make an offer for the attacker.

For Spurs, who have often admired Eze, the news will be a pleasant relief. It looks increasingly likely that he will depart Selhurst Park during the summer after an incredible campaign. Palace is fighting for Eze to stay for at least one more season after losing Michael Olise to Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich

Tottenham, on the other hand, is eager to recruit the Englishman during the summer, and it appears that they have cleared the way after Man City apparently lost interest for the midfielder. Last summer, Manchester City gave signing Eze serious consideration, but a deal never went through. Since then, Palace has made futile attempts to get him to sign a new contract.

Eze is probably going to quit the team this summer. After the current European Championship in Germany, during which he completed three games for the Three Lions, his future will be determined. That hasn't stopped Spurs from increasing their pursuit in the midfielder. To accompany James Maddison, Ange Postecoglou's team is in dire need of another playmaker, and Eze could become a fantastic addition. 

How much will Tottenham Hotspur have to pay for Eberechi Eze?

Tottenham Hotspur will continue to push for the signing of Eze, who would be essential to assisting the team in closing the gap with the English Premier League's top players, even though competing in the UEFA Champions League is no longer an option.

Throughout the previous season, he scored 11 goals and provided four assists across 27 matches in the Premier League for Palace. He averaged 2.0 crucial passes per game and produced seven great opportunities. Tottenham has to give signing Eze first priority now that Manchester City is out of the picture. Although his £60 million release price could seem expensive, he might be the deciding factor Spurs need to reach their high goals.
