SON ‘joke-taking’ LW, recruitment surges…transfer fee of 11.12 billion won

There’s a reason Son Heung-min and James Maddison chatted after the final whistle, despite being opposing strikers.

Son Heung-min’s English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur are close to finalizing their winger recruitment for next season. It’s not a big name, but a young, serviceable flanker is expected to arrive in North London.

According to Football Insider, Crystal Palace’s star striker Eberechi Eze is set to join Tottenham. Other Premier League rivals are also interested in the player, but Spurs are said to have gained the upper hand by making an early bid. The deal is being finalized. “Tottenham are stepping up their pursuit of Eberechi Eze,” the outlet said on April 24, “and sources say the 25-year-old winger’s family have been invited as special guests to the North London derby against Arsenal on Saturday.”

Tottenham Hotspur will host Arsenal in the North London Derby on April 22 at 10 p.m. in their home stadium, in a rivalry that extends beyond the Premier League. It’s a game neither team can afford to miss, with Arsenal’s first Premier League title in 20 years and Tottenham’s UEFA Champions League spot for next season on the line.

That’s why Spurs are going the extra mile by inviting Eze’s family to attend.

The reason Spurs care so much about Eze and his family is because of the competition. Manchester City, the team that won the European treble last season, is another club that wants him.

However, Eze doesn’t have a guaranteed starting spot at City and is now reportedly more attracted to a move to Tottenham.

“Tottenham have a decisive edge over City in the race to sign Eze,” Football Insider explained, “The player, who was born in Greenwich, London, is understood to favor a move to Spurs over the Premier League champions because of his family connections.” Spurs rivals Arsenal are also said to be interested in Eze, but not in a very deep way. The Gunners have some good wingers, such as Xherdan Shaqiri, so Eze could play as a backup.

Born in 1998, Eze, who will turn 26 in June, is in the process of choosing a team to enjoy the best years of his soccer career. Eze joined Crystal Palace in the 카지노 summer of 2020 for a fee of £20 million after spending four years in the senior team at Championship side QPR.

In his fourth season at Crystal Palace, he has scored 23 goals in 108 Premier League appearances. This season, he has scored eight goals in 23 Premier League games. Tottenham consider Eze to be the heir apparent to Son Heung-min, as well as competition for Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson.

With Tottenham almost certain to compete in the UEFA Club competitions next season, if not necessarily the Champions League, they need an all-weather second striker of Eze’s caliber to rotate.

Eze was the center of attention in the away game against Tottenham on February 2. Despite Eze’s opening goal, Crystal Palace conceded three goals in the next three minutes to lose 1-3.

The defeat could have dampened his spirits, but Ezekiel remained cheerful and chatted with Son Heung-min and Maddison, two of the opposing team’s top players. The British media took notice, observing that “it looks like Eze is on his way to Tottenham.”

Tottenham will pay Crystal Palace a staggering £65 million ($111.2 billion) for Eze’s transfer. That’s how much they value him.
