QPR director of football, Les Ferdinand, has lavished praise towards Eberechi Eze, claiming that the youngster is one of the most talented players he has ever seen.

Spurs have been named as favourites to land Eze in the summer transfer market (the Sun), with the attacker enjoying a fine season in the Championship.

His trickery and skill have left many defenders mesmerised while he has also shown that he has the end product by notching up twelve goals and eight assists so far this season (transfermarkt).

Eze’s performances in the Championship this season have seen many people stand up and take notice. The Rangers academy graduate is said to be valued around £20 million by the Championship club.

Ferdinand insisted that there are very few players he has come across in his career that possess the ability on the ball that Eze does.

Speaking to The Beautiful Game Podcast, the former Spurs striker said: “If you look at his (Eze’s) footballing ability I could put him down as one of the best I have seen in terms of what I have been fortunate to play with in my career.

“When I see some of the things he does on a football and how comfortable he is on a football, I put him up there as one of the best I have seen.

“Whether he fulfils his potential to be one of the best I have worked with time will tell but in terms of his ability with the ball certainly he is one of the best I have seen.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I really hope we pay the reported £20 million and get the deal completed early instead of trying to bring his price down. I believe it will be a huge blunder if we do end up missing out on Eze as his value could potentially double or triple in the coming year or two.
