According to The Athletic (subscription needed), Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the services of Eberechi Eze. The Queens Park Rangers’ forward has made quite an impression with his performances in the Championship. As a result, Spurs, who are keen on adding some attacking reinforcements in January, are monitoring his progress.
Eze’s rise to prominence
A product of the Millwall youth academy, Eze joined QPR back in 2016 as a member of the reserve team. But, it wasn’t until the following year that he was promoted to the senior side, though he was immediately loaned out to Wycombe on a six-month loan deal that ended in January 2018.
Since then, Eze has become a vital member of QPR’s attacking department, though his productivity wasn’t great during the 2018/19 campaign, where he scored only four goals. This season, however, the attacking midfielder has upped his ante, having already netted nine goals while providing four assists in just 25 matches.
Eze’s performances in the final third have helped QPR stay out of the relegation scrap, with the attacker being involved in almost 25% of the club’s total tally of 38 league goals.
What can he bring to the table?
An attacking midfielder by trade, Eze is known for his quick feet that allow him to nestle through tight spaces. His short 1.73m circumference, meanwhile, helps him retain his balance, especially when taking on defenders at full pace. In that respect, his gameplay can be compared with Borussia Dortmund ace Raphael Guerreiro.
Moreover, Eze is quite lethal in front of goal and is capable of curling the ball into the back of the net. This is rather evident if we look at his scoring statistics this season.
Is Eze a viable target for Tottenham?
Eze will be well worth the gamble for Tottenham Hotspur. As mentioned earlier, the youngster has shown immense promise in the Championship within the past couple of years. And his technical prowess, coupled with his productivity in the final third could make him a valuable addition to Spurs’ attacking unit.
The Lilywhites have often appeared overreliant on the front trio of Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane in recent years. And with Christian Eriksen facing an uncertain future at the club, the addition of Eze could make sense.
The 21-year-old can not only cover for Dele Alli in the number nine role but could also be an indirect replacement for Eriksen, should the Dane leave the club in January. Moreover, his arrival in north London could add some much-needed competition for the likes of Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Ryan Sessegnon, thus forcing them to work harder to make themselves a first-team regular.
