Leeds United could be priced out of the bidding for Eberechi Eze, according to the Daily Mirror.

Leeds are keen on the Queens Park Rangers attacking midfielder, with transfer chief Victor Orta a big fan.

However, QPR are demanding £20 million for him – and that could be too much for Leeds to pay.

Andrea Radrizzani has already suggested that Leeds will break their transfer record this sumer, but the Whites want four permanent transfers.

With Ben White already proving expensive, bringing in Eze may just prove too much for the Whites in their first summer back at the top level.

However, Orta is keen to try and get a deal done, with Leeds said to be battling with West Ham United and Crystal Palace for his signature.

Eze would be an excellent addition to Leeds’ squad, as the 22-year-old looks to have all the tools required to excel at the top level.

The QPR man was one of the Championship’s star players last season, with his craft in the final third really making him stand out.

Eze scored 14 goals and claimed eight assists, with his manager Mark Warburton going on to call him a ‘very special player’ just two weeks ago in West London Sport.

Eze would surely thrive with the attacking licence offered to him in Bielsa’s set-up, if he was to join Leeds, but it remains to be seen whether the Whites can find a way to finance a deal.
