Tottenham discover Eberechi Eze £20m price tag amid Jose Mourinho interest

Tottenham are looking at potential summer signings despite ongoing uncertainty over coronavirus fears.

Jose Mourinho’s men have struggled with injuries in recent weeks and crashed out of both the FA Cup and the Champions League, with qualification into the latter for next season looking increasingly unlikely.

Eberechi Eze has been a shining light at Loftus Road in recent months during a tricky period under Mark Warburton, and he could be on his way to the Premier League when the current Championship season reaches it’s conclusion.

Spurs are on the lookout for reinforcement as supporters start to feel frustrated, and top scout Brian Carey went to watch Eze last weekend.

The Sun have reported that a fee of £20m would be enough to convince QPR to part ways with the England Under-21 international midfielder, would is currently under contract until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Former Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha was on hand to praise his former team-mate earlier this month, suggesting that he has watch it takes to impress at Premier League level.

He told Love Sport Radio: "I played with him. He's a friend of mine.

“And obviously he plays for QPR, that was a big part of my career and I hope he stays but I also hope that he gets the opportunities to play at a high level and really test himself and see if he can be amongst that company.

"So if he's to leave, I think the fans will thank him for everything he's done.

“And I want to see what he's like playing in a different team, maybe in a bigger stadium, maybe bigger atmosphere, maybe some bigger games.”

Mourinho recently bemoaned his side’s lack of options after a string of recent injuries, with particular focus on his attack.

He said last month: “The situation is difficult. Nobody else in the Premier League or even in Europe is in such a difficult situation as we are in terms of injuries in specific positions.

“If you lose four right backs you play Oliver Skipp or Moussa Sissoko there.

"If you lose centre-backs you can play Eric Dier or Ben Davies there. But the specificity of the striker position makes it very difficult.

“You cannot say to Davinson Sanchez go play centre-forward. That's the way it is.

“We have to go into game with everything we have. It worries me a lot, the fact that the situation cannot be better. It can only get worse.”
