Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a player who has drawn comparisons with Raheem Sterling (Sky Sports News) and, judging by how well he's begun this season - with stats to back it up - it's real food for thought for Spurs.
According to The Sun, Queens Park Rangers attacker Eberechi Eze has been on the radar of Spurs and Southampton, who are believed to be pondering a bid, and QPR could well be bracing themselves for offers when the January window opens.
The 21-year-old has been thriving for the Loftus Road side this term, already registering four goals and two assists in the Championship, and stats site WhoScored has given him four Man of the Match ratings from the 11 league fixtures played so far.
Eze has picked up a 7 or above from WhoScored in seven games, including notably the 3-0 defeat to Cardiff City, showing he's definitely a cut above even when the rest of the team isn't firing on all cylinders.
The latest stat which outlines just how much of a talent he is involves the number of completed dribbles in the Championship - and he's top of the pile:
"He goes past players easier than Raheem Sterling did," Marc Bircham told Sky Sports News last year. "Sterling would beat players with pace or do a trick or a chop - it's all dynamic movements, but Ebere Eze just glides past players."
Eze is contracted to QPR until the summer of 2021, having penned an extension with the Loftus Road side last year (R's website).
