Crystal Palace are expected to open initial talks with star player Eberechi Eze over a new improved contract.
The 25-year-old’s current deal is set to expire in 2025 and Eagles chairman Steve Parish wants to tie down the attacking midfielder to a new long-term contract to financially stabilize one of his most valued assets.
Eberechi Eze set for new Crystal Palace deal
Eze has recently broken into the England national team set up under Gareth Southgate following a fantastic season for the Eagles last term.
Parish now wants Eze to follow in the footsteps of fellow Palace attacker Michael Olise in committing to his long-term future at the club.
According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Manchester City seriously considered a move for the playmaker this summer, particularly after the injury suffered to Kevin De Bruyne. The Cityzens ultimately opted to sign Matheus Nunes from Wolves instead.
