Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Eberechi Eze, who was linked to Tottenham in the summer, has commenced contract negotiations with Crystal Palace.
It was widely rumoured until the end of the summer transfer season that Spurs were considering Eze as a replacement for Brennan Johnson (The Independent), but the Welshman was eventually signed.
Tottenham were not the only club interested in the Palace star at the time, with The Daily Mail reporting last month that Manchester City were also interested.
According to the publication, the Eagles valued the England international at roughly £70 million at the time, but their resolve
would be challenged if they received a large offer because the player’s contract at Selhurst Park expires in 2025. Eze Romano has now resorted to social media to inform that Palace has already began working on a new deal for him.
The journalist reports that, following interest from clubs such as Manchester City over the summer, the Eagles hierarchy is now in talks with the player’s camp about a contract extension, with talks set to continue in the coming weeks.

Many clubs will be monitoring how these contract negotiations play out, as Palace are expected to listen to offers for Eze in January if they are unable to tie the 25-year-old down to a new contract.
