According to a report from Football.London, Tottenham have very good links with Queens Park Rangers ace Eberechi Eze’s agency. And that might just be somewhat of a problem for West Ham.

The Sun claimed earlier this year that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to sign the 21-year-old QPR ace.
The same newspaper suggested that Spurs manager Jose Mourinho is a big fan of Eze.
Both West Ham and Tottenham will be keen to bolster their attacking midfield ranks this summer.
And the QPR starlet certainly seems like a real star of the future.
Eze 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).
Eze has averaged 36.3 passes per game, with a very impressive completion rate of 86.4% (Who Scored).
And the talented youngster could be picked up this summer for around £20 million (The Sun).
Les Ferdinand, who played for both West Ham and Tottenham during his long and successful career, is a huge fan of Eze.
The 53-year-old called the QPR starlet ‘one of the best young players he has ever seen’, when speaking on the The Beautiful Game Podcast.
It seems as though Spurs could be in the driving seat, however. Football.London suggests that Tottenham have close ties with Eze’s agency Base.
And that might just give the north London outfit the upper hand over West Ham.
The Hammers have been dealt a series of blows recently with some of their targets attracting interest from richer and bigger clubs.
But losing out on Eze to Tottenham would be a really hard one to stomach for the east London outfit.
