Crystal Palace are ready to offer £15 million for QPR playmaker Eberechi Eze, according to Football Insider.
This comes after West Ham have reportedly gatecrashed the Eagles’ bid for Hull City star Jarrod Bowen meaning that Roy Hodgson’s side have turned their attentions elsewhere.
Eze has been in fantastic form this season and is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in English football in this current moment.
The attacking-midfielder has featured 29 times for the R’s this campaign and has managed to score ten times whilst also picking up six assists in the season.
The player’s contract is up in summer 2021, meaning that he has just one more campaign at the club after this season before QPR may have to let him go for nothing.
It will certainly be interesting to see QPR’s response to this offer and whether they allow the 21-year-old to leave to the Premier League.

This would be a stunning signing for Palace if they managed to pull this one off. He’s a player with great talent and a shedload of potential.
One thing that Eze has that a lot of players his age don’t is the ability to deliver end product time and time again which sets him apart from other young skilful midfielders in the league.
It will be interesting to see whether QPR would accept an offer from Palace for £15 million or whether they’d want to hold out for more.
It is clear that Crystal Palace have intentions for a new attacking midfielder, so the whole of the Championship must be wary.
