Tottenham Hotspur have emerged clear favourites to sign Queens Park Rangers England-born Nigerian £20million-rated midfielder Eberechi Eze, Completesports.com reports.
Tottenham Hotspur have been monitoring Eze,21, for some time, with former manager Mauricio Pochettino showing interest prior to his sacking in November.
And according to the Sun, current manager Jose Mourinho is now looking to strengthen his midfield in the upcoming summer transfer window and is likely to make a bid for Eze.
QPR’s high valuation of the creative midfielder is said to have put off Sheffield United and Crystal Palace who were also interested in signing him.
It is reported that Spurs may tempt QPR with a player swap package in order to land Eze’s signature.
Eze’s current deal with the Championship runs out in 2021 but a transfer to another London based club could see him leave in the upcoming window.
He has impressed at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium this season with 12 goals and eight assists in the second division.
