“I think Levy will…” – Pundit believes Tottenham chairman is ready to spend big on Premier League star

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on their long-pursued transfer target ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

Spurs have been heavily linked with Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze for several months, and the saga could finally conclude this summer.

According to former Tottenham defender Alan Hutton, Daniel Levy is preparing to make a significant investment to secure the services of the English international.

The Lilywhites are reportedly ready to invest £60 million to activate Eze’s release clause, potentially making him the club’s record signing.

Despite Eze extending his contract last November, which runs until the summer of 2027, he could still be on his way out of Selhurst Park.

Recently selected for England’s final 26-man squad for the Euros, Eze’s quality is evident, even with Gareth Southgate’s array of options.

Speaking to Tottenham News, Alan Hutton has expressed strong support for the club’s pursuit of Eze, praising the player’s versatility and attacking prowess.

The pundit highlighted the Englishman’s ability to score and assist, noting that his freedom and joy on the pitch set him apart from others who might be restricted by specific formations or roles.

Hutton also emphasized that Eze’s recent call-up to the England squad reflects his impressive form.

The former Scottish right-back said:

“Yeah, I think so for someone who is so talented and at a good age.

“Normally when you get a little bit older, you get a little more restricted. You need to play in a certain type of formation, you need to be this sort of player and he just doesn’t look like that sort of guy.

“He just goes out and plays with a smile on his face, he plays with a lot of freedom and he’s got so much attacking quality. He can score goals, he can assist, these are the type of guys you need and he’s been rewarded for his good form by being picked for the England squad.

“I think he could go and be a shining star so £60million is right. You look at some of the prices that are getting banded around now for players that aren’t as good, so I can understand that.

“If he’s going to be available for that price, I think Levy will spend it.”

Eze’s versatility, creativity and flair align perfectly with Ange Postecoglou’s vision for the team and his arrival could significantly enhance Spurs’ quality in the attacking third.
