Eze’s Crystal Palace stint
Crystal Palace would sign Eze from QPR in August of 2020, for a fee which could reportedly rise to £20m.
Despite having zero top-flight experience under his belt before this campaign, Eze has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water.
The 22-year-old would instantly become a key figure for the Eagles, and has now featured in 34 of their league ties this season.
In said ties Eze would provide six assists and score four goals, including this brilliant strike vs Wolves:

The England under-21 international also brought some much-needed creativity and flair to a fairly old Crystal Palace side.
Crystal Palace suffer huge Eze blow
Now, though, Palace have been dealt a huge blow on the Eze front.
According to The Athletic, Eze has suffered a serious Achilles injury that could rule him out well into the 2021/22 campaign.
The injury is said to have been suffered in training on Tuesday ahead of Palace’s clash with Arsenal on Wednesday. The tie is of little importance in terms of result, but it will be Roy Hodgson’s final game in charge at Selhurst Park.
Eze is due to consult a specialist on Wednesday to ascertain the extent of the rupture.
