According to a recent report by Chronicle Live, Premier League outfit Newcastle United are said to be monitoring the progress of Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze. The former Arsenal youth academy member has been excellent in the Championship all through the campaign, and his exploits are said to have attracted the likes of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and David Moyes’ West Ham United towards his services as well.

The report goes on to suggest that QPR’s Eberechi Eze would tick a lot of boxes for Newcastle United and that he is among a crop of promising English players who are currently being watched by the Magpies’ scouts. Even with all the uncertainty surrounding the Tyneside club’s impending financial takeover, they are said to have identified Eze as a player who can make an impact in the Premier League. They are reportedly working on their current list of targets with no sort of indication as to whether the potential new owners are looking to bring in a similar profile of players.

How Has Eberechi Eze Made A Name For Himself?

The QPR ace ended up graduating from the Millwall academy, despite bouncing around a variety of clubs during his younger days as a player. Formerly a member of the Arsenal, Fulham and Reading youth systems, it wasn’t until the switch to Millwall in 2014 that Eze made a name for himself in the English game. The transfer to QPR in the summer of 2016 is arguably the switch that has defined the attacker’s career, and the loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers has undoubtedly helped in his development process as well.

How Well Has Eberechi Eze Done At QPR This Season?

The Englishman began the campaign in blistering fashion, and at no point did he ever look like dropping off the pace that he initially set. Eze, to his massive credit, started in every single Championship fixture this season and was only prematurely substituted on five separate occasions all through the campaign.

With 37 league starts under his belt, Eze has proven that he has got what it takes to be a regular in the Premier League in due course. The youngster’s exploits in the lower division this season have yielded a record of 12 goals and eight assists.

What Would Eberechi Eze Add To This Newcastle Side?

The youngster is among the new generation of English dribblers who seem to be flooding the footballing scene at this point. The QPR man has the innate ability to get past defenders with his trickery and footwork, while he also tends to maintain a cool head in high-pressure situations.

Capable of dribbling his way past any defender in the world on his day, the winger also boasts excellent vision and composure after entering the final third of the pitch. Eze is also known for his amazing unselfishness in the attacking phase of the game.

The possibility of a big-money financial takeover in the summer would mean the beginning of a new era at Tyneside next season, and Eberechi Eze might turn out to be one of the brightest young English talents in recent history. The dribbler is quite similar to Allan Saint-Maximin in his playing style and would be given the right kind of nurturing and development at such a historic club. For all the big names that have been linked, the acquisition of Eze could turn out to be a real game-changer for the Magpies this summer.

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.
