Are Tottenham targeting the next Raheem Sterling?

Tottenham Hotspur are following the progress of Queens Park Rangers star Eberechi Eze, according to the Evening Standard.

The talented 20-year-old midfielder has scored three and assisted three so far this season, and has reportedly turned the heads of a number of top Premier League clubs.

The move link with a move to Tottenham represents a huge business opportunity for the North London club, regardless of their long-term plans with the player.

Having recently signed a contract to keep him at the club until 2021, and carrying himself so well at such a young age, Eze will command a big fee if he is to be taken from QPR.

Nonetheless, it’s an opportunity Spurs can’t afford to miss.

With the investment of playing time, whatever valuation Tottenham meet to acquire his services will likely only increase in resale value, rapidly.

Former QPR assistant manager Marc Bircham paid Eze a fantastic compliment when he spoke to Sky Sports: “He goes past players easier than Raheem Sterling did. Sterling would beat players with pace or do a trick or a chop – it’s all dynamic movements, but Ebere Eze just glides past players.”

A player of Sterling’s potential amongst the ranks at Spurs would do the club no harm whatsoever.
Mauricio Pochettino has enjoyed success with youngsters throughout his time with Tottenham, not least shown by the improvement of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Not only does the Argentinian have the option of bolstering his squad with another stellar English talent, but Spurs are looking at a potential goldmine investment in the career potential of Eze.
