Eberechi Eze has often left Queens Park Rangers fans divided with his performances this season but there is no doubting the potential of a man who is wearing the club’s famous number 10 shirt with pride.

It speaks volumes that Eze has started every one of QPR’s 26 Championship games in 2018/19 at the age of just 20 with his skill and ability to produce something out of nothing earning the admiration of manager Steve McClaren.

 

But, according to the Daily Star (8 January, page 47), QPR face a challenge holding on to their prized asset with Premier League club’s circling.

It is reported that London neighbours Crystal Palace are keen on signing the Greenwich-born England U20 international.

With funds tight at Loftus Road and QPR under a transfer embargo, it remains to be seen whether QPR will be forced to listen to offers, though McClaren will be desperate to keep Eze in West London as he plots a shock promotion challenge.
