EBERECHI EZE is set to treble his current salary as Crystal Palace get set to offer the star a new contract.
The Eagles are keen to keep the midfielder in their long-term plans and are ready to put a mammoth release clause in the new contract.
It would be a huge boost for the Londoners who are working to tie down their biggest stars.
In recent months Michael Olise, Jordan Ayew and Sam Johnstone all put their names down to stay with the Eagles.
And now the 25-year-old is set to follow in their footsteps after rejecting several offers from other clubs during the summer.
One club in particular was Manchester City who had Eze under their radar with Pep Guardiola believed to be a big fan.
