Queens Park Rangers of England midfielder, Eberechi Eze is currently battling to settle a summer transfer dilemma and eventually make the right choice from among five English Premier League clubs; as the quintet of West Ham United, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion are all said to be equally interested in buying the dashing youngster, megasportsarena.com reports.
With Eze having thrilled to high heavens last season in the lower division English Championship, the hunt is on for the dreadlocks-wearing lad, who is also being courted by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Melvin Amaju Pinnick for a switch of international allegiance from England to star for the Super Eagles, but the process of making up his mind is not coming easy.
As it were, QPR value the 22-year-old Eze at around £20m, which puts a cloud of doubt over the possibility of West Ham making him the next Nigerian, after Victor Obinna Nsofor, Victor Moses and Angelo Obinze Ogbonna, to star for them, as The Hammers are unlikely to spend heavily this summer unless they are ready to sell some of their top players.
That leaves QPR’s recent rivals in the Championship, West Brom highly placed as the next most likely club to snatch Eze, who made his debut for The Rs in 2017 and has now cemented his place in the first team as one of Mark Warburton’s assets, having played in all 46 matches this season, during which he scored 14 goals and gave eight assists in helping The Hoops end up in 13th spot.
The Guardian, however, reports that West Ham’s coach, David Moyes is a long-standing admirer of Eze and could decide to break the bank to hook the enterprising lad, especially as he is not so happy with the form shown by his attacking options this season and would hope that the sales of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Albian Ajeti will increase his budget to buy new talent.
