Crystal Palace have considered £20 million transfer deadline day for Super Eagles target Ebere Eze, according to report in England.
The 21-year-old Queens Park Rangers England-born Nigerian midfielder has been an impressive performance for a Championship club after scoring 10 goals and six assists in 31 appearances in all competitions for this season.
According to The Evening Standard, however, Crystal Palace are unlikely to lure Eze across London in the final few hours of the transfer deadline day as the Super Eagles hopeful at £20 million – a hefty fee for a player unproven in the Premier League.
The Eagles are also set to miss out on West Ham-bound Jarrod Bowen and manager Roy Hodgson, who was apparently considering his future due to the lack of investment at Selhurst Park, is unlikely to be too thrilled by the way things have turned out this month.
Eze’s impressive performance for QPR this season could be attributed to the interest he has been getting from Palace and Brighton but Premier clubs could be returned for the talented midfielder in the summer.
