According to a report from the Sun, West Ham are set for a battle with Tottenham, Chelsea and Leicester for Queens Park Rangers starlet Eberechi Eze in January, and it would be a real statement from the Hammers, if they win the race for the talented youngster’s signature.

The 21-year-old has been in fine form for Rangers this season. He has racked up seven goals and four assists in 19 Championship outings.

Eze is an attacking midfielder by trade. The youngster is powerfully built, has an eye for goal and is a superb passer of the football.

His game is built around pace, power and dynamism – three things that West Ham sometimes lack in the middle of the park.

 

The QPR starlet would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers. And beating the likes of Tottenham, Chelsea and Leicester to his signature would make it that little bit sweeter.

The Sun claims that Eze will cost around £20 million. And whilst that seems a lot for someone who is unproven in the Premier League, it could end up being an absolute steal.

The 21-year-old has the ability to go on and become one of the game’s very best. If he continues to develop, he will be some player.

And should West Ham win the race for his signature, they will be dealing a big blow to two of their fierce London rivals.
