3 reasons why the likes of Arsenal and Spurs need to be targeting QPR ace

Eberechi Eze has played in all 28 of Queens Park Rangers’ Championship matches during the 2018-19 campaign.

The 20-year-old, who spent time with Arsenal during his youth career, joined QPR from Millwall in 2016 and has gone from strength to strength with the R’s.

Eze made his professional debut for QPR in January 2017 and scored twice in 17 appearances for the club during the 2017-18 season.

It has been a real breakthrough campaign for the Greenwich-born attacker and Premier League clubs are believed to be monitoring his performances.

With that in mind, we have taken a look at three reasons why the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur need to be targeting a move for the 5ft 8in ace.

His numbers are impressive

Eze has contributed four goals and four assists in the Championship this season. For a largely inexperienced attacking midfielder who does not turn 21 until the end of June, those are certainly impressive statistics.

Eze is never afraid to take the ball under pressure and is also more than prepared to try things that others perhaps would not.

The England Under-20 international also scored five times in 22 appearances during a loan spell at League Two side Wycombe Wanderers last season.

He is only going to get better

The fact that Eze has played every Championship match for QPR this season is an indication of what the R’s think about him.

That sort of exposure is only going to have a positive impact on the attacker and there is every reason to believe that he will continue to improve.

Millwall will certainly be kicking themselves that they did not fight harder to keep hold of the impressive youngster, who has a contract at Loftus Road until 2021.

His ability to play in a number of different positions

It would be fair to say that Eze has played a lot of his football – particularly since the start of October – as an attacking midfielder.

He is also capable of operating on the right and left of a front three, however, and has scored goals starting from all three of those positions this season.

Eze’s versatility will make him a very attractive proposition for Arsenal and Tottenham, who have already watched him this season, according to the London Evening Standard.
