Tottenham are tipped with a transfer which would break their current transfer record. The record is held by Tanguy Ndombele, however, Ange Postecoglou is eyeing a £68m player who would render that current transfer record as insignificant.

Tottenham must pay £68m for club record transfer from London rivals

According to a report from TEAMtalk, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to break their record by making Crystal Palace forward Eberechi Eze their most expensive signing in history. The English attacker will leave Selhurst Park this summer, as per an agreement between him and the club. It is believed that he could cost Tottenham a base fee of £60m, with a further £8m in add-ons.

Eze could provide the difference between Tottenham being a good team and a great team. Currently, they are on the precipice of greatness, but Ange Postecoglou must make the signings with his own blueprint to actually improve the squad and instil a winning mentality.

Playing for Crystal Palace since 2020, Eze has made 112 Premier League appearances, truly prospering and maturing into an excellent attacker. Now that he ages at 25 years old, it makes sense that Eze will seek a step up in his career, hence the agreement between him and Palace to leave in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Next season, Tottenham will play in the UEFA Europa League. This is not something Ange Postecoglou is entirely satisfied with since it looked like he could even win the title at the beginning of the season. This is what has let Spurs down the most this season, is inconsistency. That said, Eze has never played in European competition, so he will be excited by the prospect nevertheless.

Eberechi Eze has consistently reached double figures in terms of Premier League goals scored over the last two seasons. Since he arrived at Palace, he has steadily improved and turned into one of their best and most influential players. Therefore, he could continue to improve under the tutelage of the Aussie boss.
