Tottenham set for major transfer: Levy prepared to trigger Premier League star’s huge release clause – report

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham are strongly linked with a move for Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze.

According to journalist Matt Hughes writing for The Sun, Spurs are prepared to trigger Eze’s £60 million release clause, with an additional £8 million in potential add-ons, bringing the total to £68 million.

However, the Lilywhites face competition from Premier League champions Manchester City, who are also willing to meet the release clause.

Despite having three years left on his contract with Palace, which runs until June 2027, Eze has attracted interest from several top clubs, including Tottenham.

This potential deal would surpass Spurs’ previous record transfer fee of €62 million paid to Lyon for Tanguy Ndombele in 2019.

Eze showcased his talent last season, overcoming a month-long injury to score 11 goals and provide four assists in 27 league appearances.

In the final game of the season, he scored twice in a 5-0 victory over Aston Villa, making him Crystal Palace’s fourth-highest Premier League goalscorer.

His impressive performances earned him a spot in England’s final 26-man squad for the Euros, highlighting his potential impact. Eze has made three appearances in the competition so far, as England has progressed to the semi-finals.

Tottenham’s readiness to meet the 26-year-old winger’s release clause underscores their commitment to enhancing their squad with top-tier talent.

Spurs aim to secure Eze to their squad after having already boosted the squad with the additions of Archie Gray and Lucas Bergvall, signalling their ambitions for the upcoming season.
