Jamie Redknapp absolutely raved about reported West Ham target Eberechi Eze, when writing his weekly column for the Daily Mail, labelling the Queens Park Rangers starlet as a player with star quality.
The Hammers are allegedly keen to sign the attacking midfielder. The Sun claimed a couple of months ago that David Moyes wants to bring Eze to the London Stadium in the summer.
The Express claims that QPR will demand around £20 million for the youngster.
And that would surely represent excellent value for money for West Ham.
In 37 Championship appearances for QPR this season, Eze has racked up 12 goals and eight assists (Transfermarkt) – a remarkable return.
He boasts a very impressive pass completion rate of 86.4% in those games. The 21-year-old has also averaged 1.9 key passes and three dribbles per game during those outings (Who Scored).
And Redknapp spoke incredibly highly of the young star who West Ham Ham allegedly want, when writing his weekly column for the Daily Mail:
Watch out for Eberechi Eze, QPR’s 21-year-old attacking midfielder. The Championship club have done a tremendous job of nurturing him, and I suspect we’ll see him in the Premier League sooner rather than later. From what I hear, he has plenty of admirers already. Rightly so, too, because Eze clearly has that star quality. “
Eze will clearly be hot property in the summer. Especially if he continues to impress this season.
The 21-year-old really looks like he will be a star of the future.
And if West Ham do manage to sign him for around £20 million, it might just turn out to be an excellent addition for the east London outfit.
