West Ham United and Crystal Palace are reportedly leading the race to sign QPR attacker Eberechi Eze.

Eze has been one of the Championship’s star performers this season. He has scored 13 goals for a Rangers side that will finish mid-table this season.

Hie pace and trickery have seen a number of Premier League clubs sit up and take notice, including Tottenham.

Jose Mourinho’s men were thought to be the frontrunners to land the 22-year-old, who is expected to leave this summer.

But now West Ham and Palace lead the charge for a player who has a year left on his contract.

Eze has previously stated that he wants to play in the Champions League, but those hopes will have to be put on hold for now.

Hammers boss David Moyes was at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to see Eze score against Millwall on Saturday.

QPR are expecting to fetch around £20m for Eze, although they may have to accept less given the current financial issues surrounding the game.
