Fulham keen on QPR star Eze

Fulham are interested in QPR star Ebere Eze.

The 22-year-old forward has been linked with several Premier League clubs.

However, until now the only concrete interest has come from Crystal Palace and West Ham.

But Fulham are ready to make a move for Eze following their return to the top flight.

Palace have been keen on Eze since 2018 and had an approach for him rejected by QPR in January.

More recently, a £12m bid from the Eagles was turned down.

West Ham have indicated that they are interested in Eze.

QPR: Jordan Hugill
QPR have been hoping to secure Jordan Hugill’s return to west London

Rangers have been hoping any deal with the Hammers would involve Jordan Hugill moving in part exchange.

Striker Hugill scored 15 goals for the R’s while on loan at Loftus Road last season.

There is every expectation that Eze will leave during the current transfer window, but QPR want at least £20m for him.

QPR’s search for a centre-back

Rangers remain keen to bring in at least one centre-back before the new season begins.

They want Rob Dickie but several clubs are also interested in the Oxford United defender.

Charlie Goode was identified as a possible option and an approach was made to Northampton, but he recently joined Brentford.

Meanwhile, Championship clubs have been made aware of the potential availability of Charlton’s Tom Lockyer.

A clause in the Welshman’s contract enables him to move on a free transfer following the Addicks’ relegation.
