West Ham United remain in contention to sign Queens Park Rangers playmaker Eberechi Eze this summer, according to the Guardian.

The newspaper has reported on their website that QPR are holding out for £16million after rejecting an offer from Crystal Palace.

It is suggested that the Hammers also face competition from West Brom, with the Baggies having held informal talks recently.

The Guardian have reported that the Hammers could need to sell two of their marquee names in order to make permanent moves this summer though.

Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson are the two being linked with exits in this report, with the South American duo failing to impress this season.

Jarrod Bowen was the last player to arrive at the London Stadium from the Championship, and he has taken the spotlight from the likes of those two attackers in the six months he has played.

Anderson and Lanzini would surely bring in significantly more than £16million, meaning that the Irons could go on to bring in more than just Eze.

The 22-year-old has been superb for the struggling Hoops this season. According to WhoScored, Eze has been the third-best player in the Championship, behind Said Benrahma and Matheus Pereira.

Eze scored 14 goals and added eight assists, and the Hammers have been screaming out for a goalscoring option from midfield for years now.

Last season, only two midfielders scored five goals – Andriy Yarmolenko and Robert Snodgrass. Both of those aren’t expected to be massively involved next season, so bringing in Eze could be vital.
