West Ham United reportedly could make a move to sign Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze this summer.
West Ham’s transfer business is finally kicking into gear, and the latest rumour is probably the most exciting one we have heard all summer long.
Hammers boss David Moyes has always been a huge fan of the 25-year-old Palace star. In fact he tried to sign him in the summer of 2020, but ended up with Said Benrahma instead.
And now it seems like the Scot could make a move for the attacking midfielder once again…
West Ham could try to sign Eberechi Eze this summer
The Independent reckon that if the Hammers fail to bring Jeremy Doku to the London Stadium, Moyes could target a dramatic move to sign Eze.
According to Palace fan-site Eagles Beak, the Eagles value Eze at around £70 million. However, I reckon that it might take £60 million to prise the 25-year-old away from Selhurst Park if we’re lucky.
And although that sounds like a lot of money, I would be all over it if there was even a slight possibility of bringing the former QPR man to the London Stadium. He is a truly elite footballer.
The Londoner bagged 10 goals and four assists in 38 Premier League games for Palace last season (Transfermarkt).
Eberechi Eze has incredible skill, is a real athlete, has the ability to win games single-handedly and would take West Ham’s play in the final third to another level all together.
I have to say though, it’s highly doubtful that the Hammers board will be paying £70 million for anybody this summer, and the Palace owners will certainly be resistant to letting Eze leave – especially to join a London rival.
