Crystal Palace attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze’s potential to sign a new contract at Selhurst Park would be an “unbelievably good moment” for the club, as transfer insider Dean Jones provides GIVEMESPORT with an internal claim on another coveted star.
Eagles manager Roy Hodgson will be delighted if the capital club can tie their top talents to long-term contracts before the winter transfer window opens.
Palace have established themselves as a comfortable mid-table side in the Premier League in recent years and hope to push themselves into the top half this term. The commitment of the south London outfit’s star players will help achieve that goal come the end of the season.
Palace set to die Eze down to new contract
Eze has established himself as a key player since his £20m arrival at Crystal Palace from Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers in 2020. Despite suffering a long-term injury which ruled him out for the majority of the 2021-22 campaign, the 25-year-old is now one of the Premier League’s most exciting attacking players.
Eze was integral to Palace’s turnaround in form upon Hodgson’s re-appointment at Selhurst Park last season, with the club sliding dangerously towards a relegation battle. The attacking midfielder’s impressive displays earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and he will now be targeting a spot on the plane to Germany for Euro 2024 next summer.

During the recent transfer window, treble holders Manchester City had considered making a play for Eze’s services after missing out on West Ham United midfielder Lucas Paqueta. The Eagles’ £70m price tag made the Sky Blues look elsewhere, who eventually signed Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Matheus Nunes.
This week, Hodgson suggested he was confident that Eze would sign a new contract with Palace, having opened talks over extending his deal in September. There’s a strong possibility that fresh terms could include a release clause, like current teammate Michael Olise’s contract, who turned down Chelsea during the summer before penning new terms in south London.
