CRYSTAL Palace attacker Eberechi Eze is set to attract transfer attention again this summer – and reportedly has a £60million release clause in his contract. 

While Eze is focusing on Euro 2024 after being named in Gareth Southgate’s squad last week, clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur – who have previous interest in him – are considering moves again this summer. 

The Mail report that Eze’s contract includes a £60million release clause as well as £8million in add-ons. 

Eze has just finished a fine, albeit injury-affected, season scoring eleven goals and getting four assists in 27 Premier League games.  

Meanwhile, Eze came on as a 77th-minute substitute for Cole Palmer but couldn’t help England avoid slumping to a 1-0 defeat to Iceland at Wembley in their last game before the tournament in Germany. 

Palace defender Marc Guehi played the full game, while Dean Henderson and Adam Wharton were on the bench. 

England were booed off the pitch at the end of the game, after Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson scored the only goal in the twelfth minute. 

“I completely understand [the boos]. We didn’t play well enough to keep them excited within the game,” Southgate said. 

“We had some very, very good chances which normally would be finished which could have given a different complexion to the game and of course would have affected the confidence of the opponent.

“But that would have masked some flaws that were apparent tonight. From my perspective, I’ve learned a lot from the game.

“It does focus the mind that any sort of complacency that talent is going to get us this trophy and that we only have to stroll in…football is not like that.

“You’ve got to be spot on in every aspect of the game to win any game at this level and we were a long way short of that tonight and Iceland deserved their win.”
