Crystal Palace will not meet QPR’s valuation of attacker Eberechi Eze this summer, a report from The Sun has claimed.
Eze enjoyed an outstanding campaign in Mark Warburton’s side last season, scoring 14 goals and providing eight assists, as Rangers finished 13th in the Championship table.
Those performances from Eze have attracted plenty of attention in the attacker, although it seems some clubs may not value the 22-year-old quite as highly as Rangers do just yet.
According to the latest reports, Palace do not believe Eze is worth more than £10million as a lump fee upfront, which is around half of the £20million Rangers believe the attacker to be worth.
It is thought that the Eagles have already seen a bid of £8million plus addons rejected, with these latest discussions now seemingly reaching an impasse, with QPR reportedly telling Palace to only come back when they have what they feel is a serious offer in place.
West Ham are also said to be interested in a move for Eze, although it has been suggested that they will have to sell some of their current senior players, before they are in a position where they can afford their current transfer window targets.
You feel that this is good to see from QPR.
By holding their ground here, the club are showing that they will not be bullied into selling any player, meaning they should be in a good position to ultimately get a decent fee for Eze here.
However, they may have to be slightly careful not to take this too far, and risk pricing clubs out of a move for so long that they eventually risk losing Eze for nothing when his contract with the club expires. which would make it even harder to replace him.
