Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all interested in signing Eberechi Eze from Crystal Palace this summer. The 25-year-old shined in the latter stages of the 2023/24 campaign, with nine goal contributions from 11 appearances, after enduring an injury-riddled opening.

As a result of his late-season form, England boss Gareth Southgate opted to include him in his final 26-man squad for the European championships. Even prior to that decision, Eze was attracting transfer interest from Spurs, though others were more focused on teammate Michael Olise.

However, as he has chosen to join Bayern Munich in Germany, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have all turned their attention to Eze. Though many teams are in the race, no bidding war looks set to play out as Eze has a release clause in his contract at Selhurst Park.

With all of that being said, football.london has rounded up all of the latest updates on Eze's future amid links to several Premier League clubs.

Arsenal 'pushing'

Arsenal are the team 'pushing the most' for Eze with their interest in the midfielder described as 'serious', according to journalist Simon Phillips' Substack.

The Gunners are looking at strengthening in midfield this summer with Eze now appearing to be a serious target, though they will likely have to fend off interest from several teams.

Tottenham advantage

Tottenham may have a clear advantage over their rivals in the transfer battle for Eze.

football.london understands Ange Postecoglou is a huge admirer of Eze and any potential talks could be completed smoothly as he is represented by Base, the agency who also represent Postecoglou, Son Heung-min, James Maddison and several others.

Chelsea decision

Like Arsenal and Tottenham, Chelsea have also been a Premier League club to establish themselves in the race to sign Eze.

The Blues have already welcomed Tosin Adarabioyo and are looking to sign a striker with several names of interest. According to journalist Simon Phillips' Substack, Chelsea like Eze but they are currently looking more at wingers as opposed to No.10s, which is what they consider Eze to be.
