Eberechi Eze, who plays for Queens Park Rangers, has been heavily linked with Crystal Palace over the last couple of weeks; and as speculation continues, many Eagles fans have been reacting to the latest update on the player.
According to Sky Sports, and tweeted out by Palace Xtra, the south London side are still negotiating with QPR over the transfer of Eze, and this is good news for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it shows that the club should hopefully go back in with another offer soon, and secondly because at the moment it seems that no other side has made official contact apart from Palace.
It is understandable to see why Palace, as well as fellow Premier League sides like West Ham and Newcastle, are interested in the player, 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.
For many supporters of the Eagles, though, they are concerned about the deal taking too long. This worry is emphasised due to the fact that Wilfried Zaha wants to leave and, if you take Jordan Ayew’s nine goals out of the squad, their next top scorer is Zaha with only four.
Hopefully someone with as much attacking influence like Eze can come in and help the club produce more than the 31 goals they scored in the Premier League last season.
Here is what these Palace fans said following the latest report on Eze:
