West Ham using Hugill in race for QPR winger Eze

West Ham United boss David Moyes is stepping up his push for QPR winger Eberechi Eze.

The London Evening Standard says West Ham are set to offload striker Jordan Hugill this summer, with the Hammers happy to accept a fee of around £5m.

Hugill, signed from Preston during David Moyes' first spell at the club for a fee of around £8m, has never found his feet in the Premier League and spent last season on loan with QPR, one of the many Championship clubs interested in a permanent deal for the 28-year-old.

Relegated Norwich have also registered an interest, but with Rangers forward Eze one of Moyes' top targets this window, the Hammers are hopeful that involving Hugill in any deal with Mark Warburton's side could give them the edge ahead of Eze's other Premier League suitors.
