Despite their largely inconsistent campaign so far, Queens Park Rangers still possess some of the Championship’s most impressive and consistent performers, with the likes of Jordan Hugill, Nahki Wells and Eberechi Eze having shone under Mark Warburton so far.
It is perhaps unsurprising that Eze’s strong showings have garnered interest from afar, with The Sun recently reporting that the 21-year-old is once again of interest to Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur ahead of a potential move for the forward in the January transfer window from the North London club.
The QPR faithful will be feeling wary over the prospect of losing one of their star performers, with the potential departure of the youngster sure to cause issues for Warburton’s side if he were to depart the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Eze, of course, has already netted seven goals this term and also laid on four assists for his teammates this campaign, and for that reason the R’s fans will be approaching this rumour with a level of realism, with it being a high possibility that the attacker could well depart for pastures new.
Fans will take solace in the fact that they would still have the attacking talents of Messrs Hugill and Wells to call upon, whilst Ilias Chair and Bright Osayi-Samuel will both offer the side a lot of creativity.
However, losing one of their star men halfway through the season would be a big blow for the Championship outfit as they seek to establish themselves as play-off contenders this term.
The pressure is currently heightened on Warburton after a poor run of results that has left the club in the lower reaches of the league table, meaning that the fans would surely become even more disgruntled if Eze’s sale was to be sanctioned by the club hierarchy in January.
Ultimately it remains to be seen if Spurs will make their interest more concrete, however, the QPR fans will surely be braced for the prospect of losing their star player in the coming months.
