Former Super Eagles invitee and QPR midfield wizard Eberechi Eze, who has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace, has claimed that he dreams of playing football ‘at the highest level’.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the 21-year-old Eze started out at the academy of Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal, before having stints with Fulham, Reading and Millwall.
Eberechi Eze is one of the stars in the current QPR team
The attacking midfielder moved to QPR in 2016 and has become a regular member of the first-team after a brief loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers.
Till date, Eze has featured 103 times for QPR, scoring 18 goals and setting up 13 more. The forwrd has been in fine form in 2019/20, having bagged 12 goals and 8 assists in the EFL Championship.
This kind of form has put the youngster on the radars of Tottenham. The Sun reported that our scout Brian Carey was in attendance to watch Eze in action in QPR’s 3-1 win against Preston in March.
Eze’s performances have shown that he is a cut above the rest at QPR. And now the youngster has expressed his desire to play at the highest level.
“The most important thing is what I’m doing on the pitch and as long as I continue to focus on that, everything else will fall into place. I want to play at the highest level,” added Eze, who has been in scintillating form, the same cannot be said about QPR.
The former Premier League side find themselves well away from the playoff positions. And with just a year left on the 21-year-old’s contract, there is a distinct possibility that they could decide to cash in on him should a suitable offer come in because Eberechi Eze’s contract runs out in 2021.
Eze, for his part, did claim that he was enjoying life with the Championship outfit and is very happy at the club.
However, his desire to play at the highest level and QPR’s inability to provide that might work in our favour, should the club decide to make a move for the Nigerian-born midfielder this summer.
