Tottenham emerging as clear favourites to land QPR’s Eberechi Eze – Sun

QPR standout

Eberechi Eze joined up with QPR’s under-23 side in 2016.

The now 21-year-old joined from Millwall’s under-18 side on a free transfer.

Eze was then loaned out to Wycombe Wanderers for the first half of the 2017/18 campaign, where he made 22 appearances, and scored five goals.

Since returning to QPR, Eze has made just over 100 appearances for the Championship outfit.

But it has mainly been this current season where the young Englishman has begun to showcase his talent.

In 37 league ties this term, Eze has scored 12 and also provided eight assists.

Tottenham favourites to sign Eberechi Eze

Eze’s current QPR deal is set to expire in the summer of 2021.

And it looks as though the England under-21 international could be on the move in the near future.

Tottenham are eyeing a move for QPR’s star man, with one of their scouts having watched Eze earlier this month as he scored one and assisted one vs Preston, according to the Sun.

The same report from the Sun claims that the capital giants are now emerging as clear favourites to sign Eze.

QPR are said to want around £20m for Eze, a price-tag which has already put off both Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, according to the Sun.

But, given the fact that Spurs perhaps aren’t overly desperate for an attacking midfielder at the moment, would they not be better served pursuing reinforcements in another position, such as a right-back or back-up centre-forward?

Daniel Levy has never really been known to splash the cash, and at £20m, Eze, who has no PL experience, may not be the smartest option for Spurs in the summer.
