Aston Villa are among a list of Premier League clubs reportedly showing interest in Queens Park Rangers midfielder Eberechi Eze.
After a final day draw with West Ham United, Villa’s top-flight status has been secured and the focus will now be on manager Dean Smith to utilise the transfer market and potentially improve his squad options.
Finishing 17th in the Premier League table, the Claret and Blue outfit face a number of potential summer exits with club captain Jack Grealish linked with a departure, whilst the likes of John McGinn have also received interest from elsewhere.
Whilst Smith will be keen to keep hold of those two players, it has now been reported that he could be set to swoop for QPR’s Eze, who was in superb form over the course of the 2019/2020 season.
The 22-year-old London-born footballer featured in no less than 46 Championship games for Rangers, netting an impressive 14 goals and securing eight assists in the process.
That form has now seen the likes of Villa, joined by West Ham United, Crystal, Palace, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion with interest in the £20 million valued youngster.
Reacting via Twitter account @villareport, who shared the news of Villa’s reported interest in Eze, fans gave their opinion on a potential move for the youngster. One suggested that he would be an ideal replacement for Grealish – indeed he plays as an advanced midfielder or wide on the left, just as the current Villa captain does.
We need to make a move early

He looks good, there’s some great quality on the continent as well we should be looking at.
