ExWHUemployee has claimed on Twitter that West Ham want to sign Queens Park Rangers midfielder Eberechi Eze this summer.

The Hammers were linked with a move for the talented 21-year-old by The Sun earlier this year.
And Claret and Hugh backed up those claims a couple of days ago.
Eze is a wonderfully exciting young talent. And he would be a truly exceptional signing for West Ham.
He has been in absolutely incredible form for the west London outfit this season.
He has racked up 12 goals and eight assists in 37 Championship outings for QPR (Transfermarkt).
In those outings, the 21-year-old has averaged 2.4 shots, 1.9 key passes and three dribbles per game (Who Scored).
And ExWHUemployee has claimed that the rumours suggesting that West Ham want the young Englishman do indeed have legs:
Nope although we are keen on Eze. https://t.co/MjoGxnI3mk

David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to bring the Greenwich-born ace to the London Stadium, but it won’t be easy to prise him away from Loftus Road.
The Sun claims that Eze could cost around £20 million. But there have also been recent suggestions that QPR’s asking price could now be lower than that.
Even if West Ham do have to pay £20 million for the 21-year-old, however, it would be good value for them.
Eze has all of the attributes needed to go on and become one of the very best in the game.
And he is exactly the kind of player the Hammers should be targeting.
