Fulham are preparing an offer for QPR midfielder Ebere Eze, according to reports this morning.

The Whites are ready to enter the race to land the 22 year-old, who scored fourteen goals in 46 league appearances for Mark Warburton’s side last season, which is currently led by Crystal Palace and West Ham. Palace are longstanding admirers of the England under-21 international having had an approach turned down in January but had a £12m offer rejected earlier this month.

West Ham are also keen to take the talented midfielder to the London Stadium, having watched him several times at the end of last season. QPR are looking for suitors to match their £20m valuation – or for West Ham to construct a deal that would see Jordan Hugill, who scored fifteen goals on loan for Rangers last term, move to Loftus Road on a permanent basis.

Fulham’s interest could prompt a serious bidding war for Eze, whose current contract with QPR expires a year’s time, although the club have an option to trigger a twelve-month extension at that point. He has scored 20 goals in 112 senior appearances since breaking into the Rangers first team in 2017 and is widely regarded as one of the most exciting talents in the Championship.
