Eberechi Eze is the new number 10 in town at QPR, and some have said he is showing the talents that the great Rodney Marsh and Stan Bowles once did at Loftus Road.
He isn’t quite at that level, in reality, miles from it in fact, but to achieve said praise is testament to the ability of Ebere Eze.
Released by Millwall in 2016, the youngster struggled around a few trials – he was deemed to small by Arsenal before unsuccessful trials with other clubs in the London area.
Technical director Chris Ramsey saw something in Eze and signed him up, and no one has looked back since.
This season, QPR had a terrible start, but since then, have shown the form of play-off candidates.
Currently in 9th place, Steve McClaren has led QPR to a brilliant position and things are truly on the up for the R’s.
Eze has been crucial to that, and he could be said to be one of their best players this season.
With that, though, there will be inevitable interest from Premier League clubs this window, and if so, the price they will offer will surely tempt QPR to sell.
However, the hierarchy at Loftus Road should do all they can to keep hold of Eze, at least until summer.
If they sold him now, replacements would be tough to get, as not many clubs will be willing to part with their best players in January, so a loan for a player that isn’t getting much game time would be the realistic option.
Also, if Eze continues at QPR and carries on playing in the bane of form that he is, his price could surge.
The future is bright for Eze, with England youth call-ups incoming in 2019, so QPR should do all they can to keep on to their prize asset.
