Newcastle United: Magpies show strong interest in QPR ace Eberechi Eze but face competition from Crystal Palace, West Brom and West Ham - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly showing strong interest in Queens Park Rangers ace Eberechi Eze, but face competition from Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United for his signature in the summer transfer window, according to The Beautiful Game Podcast.

As per the podcast, the Eagles had an opening bid rejected for the QPR man, and will bid again, as they apparently lead the chase.

The Hammers and the Baggies are still interested, but no formal offers have been made by those two teams, although the manager of WBA Slaven Bilic allegedly likes the player a lot.

However, the Magpies could still swoop in for his services, providing that they can pay the asking price.

Eze enjoyed a relatively impressive 2019/20 season in the EFL Championship, scoring 14 goals and making a further eight assists mainly from midfield having featured in all 46 games (via Transfermarkt).

The England Under-21 international also averaged more shots, key passes, crosses and long balls per league match than fellow attacking midfield players Allan Saint-Maximin, Christian Atsu and Miguel Almiron in the Premier League in the last campaign (per Whoscored).

Would Eze start for Newcastle?

Yes, there is a difference in the quality of the leagues, but Eze has shown that he could potentially make the step up to the top flight.

At just 22 years of age as well, he still arguably has a lot of potential and time to adapt to the demands of England’s highest division.

Who was the last club Rafa managed before Newcastle?

Nevertheless, Steve Bruce may need to act fast if he is to get his signature over the dotted the line given the competition that the Toon face.

Geordies, would Eze be a good signing? Comment below!
