Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze on more than one occasion in the past year (Sun).
The 21-year-old broke into the QPR side back in 2017 and is now a key first-team star in the Championship for the club. The youngster has netted a career-best 11 goals in 34 games so far this season (Wikipedia).
Eze currently plays and trains alongside multiple Spurs players, as both Jack Clarke and Luke Amos are on loan at the London side, perhaps hinting at a positive relationship between the clubs.
The QPR Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, has now admitted that it will be hard to hold onto their star man for the long-term.
He revealed that the club had to fend off interest from clubs in the January transfer window, although he failed to name which were interested.
Ferdinand expects bids to come in for Eze in the summer and sees him playing for one of the top-six sides eventually.
He said (Football London): “It’s going to be very difficult. When you have a player of his quality doing well in your team nobody wants to see him go.
“I had to fend off a few offers in the January window and, I’m sure if he continues to play in the manner he is playing and adds a few more goals to his game, I’m expecting us to get offers in during the summer.
“I think if you look at his ability, I see him playing for one of the top six sides. I see him playing for England or he can play for Nigeria as well, so we’ll see him on the international scene because of his ability. He’s certainly got the ability to do that.
“There’s a few more bits and pieces to add to his game but those bits and pieces are going to come.#
“I’ve no danger in seeing those bits and pieces come. He’ll go all the way.”
