West Ham rival Crystal Palace for QPR whiz Eze

Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze is interesting West Ham United.

The London Evening Standard says the January arrivals of Jarrod Bowen, 23 and Tomas Soucek, 25, are the blueprint for the direction manager David Moyes wants to take in the transfer market; young talents with a point to prove in the Premier League, and Eze fits the bill perfectly. If he has played his last game for Rangers, the 22-year-old signed off in style with a spectacular goal, his 14th of the season, in the 2-2 draw with West Brom.

West Ham face competition from London rivals Crystal Palace for the forward, who started every game in the Championship for Mark Warburton.

It is understood QPR valued Eze at £20million but given the financial impact of Covid-19 on the transfer market and the club's need to sell, they are likely to accept a lower figure and will not stand in his way of fulfilling a dream move to the Premier League.
