Tottenham Hotspur would like to sign some attacking talent ahead of the 2024/25 season. Admittedly, their defence looked pretty frail at times last season but this won't be a priority, as Ange Postecoglou is aware of the long-term project taking place at the back. The forward line could do with a refresh, though.

Ideally, they would like to sign a central striker but Postecoglou would not turn his nose up at strengthening other positions. In fact, what they need is a free-roaming player who can contribute to the all-round buildup play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Therefore, it is no surprise that Tottenham are currently targeting Eberechi Eze. The Crystal Palace midfielder is wanted by Tottenham and the club even inquired about his services. Ange Postecoglou is big fan of Eberechi Eze and it's clear to see why.

According to a report from talkSPORT, Eberechi Eze is believed to have a release clause of around £60m in his Crystal Palace contract. Therefore, this is an option for Tottenham to consider, should they wish to skip the negotiation period.

However, given the fact that Tottenham have already inquired (and Daniel Levy's innate business mindset), it is easy to assume that Tottenham would like to secure themselves a lower fee for Eberechi Eze. Still, the report does state that Tottenham are open to the £60m release clause, if other avenues fail them.

The 25-year-old is a versatile player who can play anywhere in the midfield or out wide. In fact, it is difficult to tie him down to one position given the nature of his play. He likes to play in advanced positions, drifting between the lines and contributing to buildup play with his intricate passing ability and deft touches.

At times last season, Tottenham were frustrating to watch because they got themselves into promising attacking positions but lacked a player who could link up play. This wasn't helped by James Maddison dropping out of form halfway through the season. In Eze, Spurs would be signing a player who guarantees their attack a free-flowing nature.
