Son Heung-min’s club, Tottenham, is about to experience an unexpected spark. Manchester City are preparing to make a move for one of their own. Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze is the subject of interest from both big clubs.
Eze is a 25-year-old attacking midfielder who scored 10 goals and provided four assists in the Premier League last season. Although his main position is in the midfield, he can also perform at a high level on the wing, making him a very versatile player. Eze has been a mainstay at Crystal Palace for the past three years, catching the eye of manager Gareth Southgate and recently earning his first England cap.
According to the British publication The Independent, City are facing competition from Tottenham for Eze’s signature.
City’s situation is complicated. Winger Riyad Mahrez left for Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli. The search is on for a new winger. The first player that came to mind was Rennes’ Jeremy Dokou. However, it looks like Manchester City are about to lose out to West Ham. City have reportedly finalized a personal agreement with Dokou, but Rennes are more interested in West Ham than City. The Hammers are flush with cash after selling Declan Rice to Arsenal for £150 million. They have made a bid for Dokou, but Rennes want at least £50 million for him.
In response, City gave up on Dokou and turned their attention to Eze. Kevin De Bruyne’s injury also had an impact. He’s out for the season, but Ezekiel can fill the void left by De Bruyne in the attacking midfield, making him even more appealing to City.
Initially, Tottenham had expressed interest in Ezekiel, but City came out of nowhere. It’s not just any other team, it’s the reigning champions, the club that players want to play for. This created a headache for Tottenham.
