Much of Queens Park Rangers early season success has been thanks to the exploits of 21-year-old attacker Eberechi Eze, with the youngster having already racked up seven goals and four assists for the R’s so far.
Despite his side’s form going out off the rails in recent weeks, Eze has still managed to maintain a good level of consistency in his performances levels, with the forward netting a much needed penalty for his side against Derby County last weekend.
It is perhaps unsurprising that the attacker’s form has once again attracted interest in his services from afar, with The Sun reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are watching Eze closely ahead of a potential January transfer.

The impact of Eze’s potential departure could have a detrimental effect on the R’s chances of reaching the play-offs this season.
Here, we take a look at ONE winner and ONE loser of Tottenham securing a deal for Eberechi Eze in January….
One player who would certainly be the beneficiary of any deal to take Eze away from the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium is Ilias Chair, with the youngster having struggled to catch the attention of bigger clubs due to Eze’s fine form overshadowing his contribution.
With Eze leaving, Chair would be in a stronger position to demand a new contract and more of a key role within Mark Warburton’s squad.
One player who would certainly be downhearted by Eze’s departure would be Bright Osayi-Samuel, with the winger having struck up a good understanding with the star both on and off the pitch, Osayi-Samuel could in theory become unsettled at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium should his teammate depart.
It would be interesting to see whether the attacker would be willing to stay put if a host of star men left the club in the coming months, with Osayi-Samuel himself sure to be of interest to bigger outfits following his own bright start to the campaign.
