West London Sport have claimed that Queens Park Rangers are interested in signing West Ham midfielder Josh Cullen this summer.

And that should be a big boost to the Hammers’ hopes of landing Eberechi Eze.

QPR were keen to sign Jordan Hugill, and were ready to include the striker in a part exchange deal for Eze (West London Sport).

The 28-year-old completed his move from West Ham to Norwich City yesterday, however, leaving many Hammers fans wondering why on earth we didn’t include the former Preston man in a potential deal to sign Hoops ace Eze.

West Ham fans believed that their hopes of signing the special 22-year-old were over after Hugill joined Norwich.

But there may just be a ray of light for the Hammers.

 

One last roll of the dice?

West London Sport last night claimed that QPR are looking at a potential move for West Ham midfielder Josh Cullen.

So there is surely still hope that we could resurrect a deal to sign Eze.

West London Sport claims that Crystal Palace and Fulham are currently the front-runners for the 22-year-old’s signature, however. So there is still a lot of work to be done.

But at least there is a way in which we could force ourselves back in the race. Cullen is a decent young player. But he’s 24 now. And it is highly doubtful that he will evolve into an elite Premier League player. The midfielder is more than capable of making a difference for a Championship club, however.

Let’s just hope our owners have their heads screwed on. There is a real chance here to gain an advantage over Fulham and Palace.

With our owners’ track record, however, none of us will be holding out too much hope.
