West Ham have indicated they are interested in a potential deal to sign Ebere Eze from QPR.
Hammers boss David Moyes and his assistant Alan Irvine watched Rangers’ game against Millwall on Saturday.
Moyes is considering making a move to sign Eze, who scored in QPR’s 4-3 win – his 13th goal of the season.
Moyes has also been made aware of Ryan Manning’s potential availability this summer.
Manning scored too at the weekend and was outstanding in the second half of the game.
Rangers expect to receive firm bids for Eze this summer.
The 22-year-old has been linked with several Premier League clubs during the last year or so.
However, prior to West Ham’s the only solid interest in Eze has been from Crystal Palace.
That could change when the transfer window reopens, with the forward having established himself as one of the most exciting players outside the Premier League.
His current deal is due to expire next year but QPR hold an option to extend it by 12 months, meaning Eze is effectively under contract until 2022.
QPR waiting on Manning
The club recently triggered similar options to extend the contracts of Manning and Bright Osayi-Samuel until next year.
But Osayi-Samuel is expected to complete a move to Belgian outfit Club Brugge after rejecting offers of a longer-term deal.
And Manning’s representatives are keen for the Irishman to keep his options open in the hope that clubs might come in for him.
Manning has duly been linked with a host of Premier League sides, but so far there has been no sign of any concrete interest in him.
