Crystal Palace are still battling for Eberechi Eze, and the latest update is one that highlights how much of a rollercoaster this possible transfer has been for fans of the South London side.
According to West London Sports, and reposted on Twitter by Palace Xtra, Queens Park Rangers have turned down another offer from Crystal Palace for Eze, however negotiations between the two clubs are continuing and at this stage it looks as though Eze will end up at Selhurst Park.
With Wilfried Zaha keen to leave, and Palace only scoring 31 goals in the division last season, a signing like Eze would be a great one as he scored 14 goals and provided eight assists for the R’s last season, per WhoScored. He has also managed on average 2.2 shots, 1.8 key passes and 2.3 successful dribbles per game.
It will frustrate a lot of fans of the club that another bid has been rejected for the 22 year-old, but the fact is that in the current situation they are still favourites to sign him, so hopefully they can get this deal done sooner rather than later.
Here is what fans said following the news:
