Manchester City Weigh Up Move For Eze

Manchester City Weigh Up Move For Eze

Manchester City are considering late move for Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze before the transfer window closes, Manchester Evening News reports.

Palace are understood to value Eze at £70million and have already had success at fending off interest in their exciting players from big clubs this summer after Michael Olise signed a new deal amid interest from City and Chelsea.

It’s been an uncharacteristically chaotic final few weeks of the transfer window for City who have been left scrambling for options as they cope to deal with a growing injury crisis.

Treble winning coach Pep Guardiola named an inexperienced bench for Saturday’s win over Newcastle United and after the game admitted the club had some ‘big decisions’ to make in the transfer market.

One such decision was made swiftly afterwards as City agreed a fee with Rennes for the signing of winger Jeremy Doku to replace Riyad Mahrez.

The 21-year-old conducted his medical on Wednesday and is expected to be announced in time to be involved against Sheffield United this coming weekend.

Midfield has proven to be a problem as Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out for the rest of the year after undergoing hamstring surgery.

Also captain Ilkay Gundogan departed at the start of the summer and were keen to reinforce their midfield options beyond the signing of Mateo Kovacic before the Belgian was sidelined.

City failed in an attempt to sign Declan Rice before he joined Arsenal and then cooled their interest in West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta after the FA opened an investigation for potential betting rules breaches against him.

Manchester Evening News, quoting MEN Sport, Eze is one of the options City have admired and considered for a while and have now honed in on after De Bruyne’s injury and the issues with signing Paqueta.

    Hahahahaha….Eze for 70m quid……I dey laugh o.
    City should use a third of that amount to poach Iwobi from Everton instead (if his injury is not long-term) and come back to thank me later.

      Thumbs up Brotherman Dr Drey. Iwobi is far better than Eze. Lolzzz

      • oluwoleo 6 months ago

        Iwobi was here when we clamored for Eze to play for Nigeria…. Now Iwobi is better than EZE because he made a choice to be with England….Na wa for una o….Eyi aiye….

  • Iwobi better than Eze good Joke nice try not even close. Iwobi still has a lot to go to be on Eze’s level. Movement taking players on passing Range Eze is ahead of Iwobi. I used to say Eze would have been the ideal Okocha replacement buy NFF spends all its Resources tampering with The list plus petting Musa and Flying to Arabia to go and Convince Ighalo to Play for Super Eagles.

    Bad Belle people are hating because of their mumu NFF’s lack of proactivity lol.

    • If you say Eze’s recent form is better, I will agree but the word “Not even close” doesn’t exist in this matter.
      The last time I checked, in 38 games last season, Iwobi had 7 assists while Eze had just 4 but 10 to 2 goals in favor of Eze in which we can link that to Iwobi’s versatility. He played as a right back, Central midfielder, from both wings, even played as a defensive midfielder in some matches. Leave Iwobi in that offensive midfield role let’s see may be the comparison isn’t close.
      Assuming iwobi is from Cameroon or cote d ivoire you go know wats up.

  • @Sean I will agree with you Iwobi is Versitile as you explained. Don’t get me wrong I love Iwobi but when the main catalyst on this forum backing NFF up when they were not chasing Eze well come and start saying Manchester City should go for Iwobi instead of Eze. Lol.

    Eze was destined for greatness. Came up the ranks from league championship to now Man City chasing him for how much. Meanwhile Iwobi had his ass on the butter at Arsenal but blew it. That is to show you the difference in Mental strength and Ability of the two which leads me to my next point

    When it comes to Decision making Eze is miles ahead of iwobi and key passes too.plus Eze is a free kick specialist how many Free kicks have super Eagles scored in fact when last have SE scored from free kick lol

    If Iwobi was that good why did Pep not go for him instead. Make we rest the matter joor.

    Tell your tin god Eze to use his “Decision Making” and “Free Kicks” to amass as much class as Iwobi has amassed and then come back here for a proper discussion.

    “….If Iwobi was that good, why did Pep not go for him instead….” senselessness of the highest order.

    Odegaard is not that good because Pep didn’t go for him…..Bruno is not that good because Pep did not go for him….. Madison is not that good because Pep did not go for him, Reus, Veratti, Payet, Koopemniers, Perreira are all not that good because Pep hasnt gone for them…..LMAOooo. Anybody Pep does not go for is not that good. LMAOooo.

    Eze to Mancity = Joke of the Century…..!!!

    Once again, City should use a third of that 70m to poach Iwobi from Everton instead (if his injury is not long-term) and come back to thank me later.

    • You have just stated the obvious which many are shying away from. Additionally,if Iwobi had played against Ghana in the last World cup qualifiers, the story would have been different on account of his leadership quality and aura which could have scared the hell out of lousy Ghanaians !
