Newcastle United are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in Eberechi Eze ahead of the summer transfer window.
The attacking midfielder has established himself as one of the best players outside the top-flight with his performances for the R’s this season, with Eze scoring 12 goals and providing eight assists in this campaign. Unsurprisingly, such form has caught attention and boss Mark Warburton claimed recently that the 21-year-old could go on to play for any side in the Premier League.
Crystal Palace were keen on Eze in the previous window, whilst Tottenham have been linked with a £20m move for the youngster and the Chronicle have now confirmed that the Magpies are keeping tabs on Eze ahead of the window.
Of course, there is every possibility that the Tyneside outfit could be one of the biggest spenders in the country if their proposed takeover that will bring significant Saudi investment goes through, so such a fee won’t be a problem for Newcastle.
Is £20m fair for Eze?
No money is enough
We need more
That's a fair amount
No club will pay that
If the level of interest in Eze results in formal bids, QPR will have a real battle to keep hold of the player and their best chances may be by winning promotion to the Premier League. Even though Warburton’s men are in the bottom half of the table, they are only six points away from the play-off places with nine games remaining. Plus, they had built up some momentum prior to the enforced break, going on a six game unbeaten run in the league.
