Premier League club Crystal Palace have considered a deadline day move for Queens Park Rangers England-born Nigerian midfielder Ebere Eze, but The Eagles seem unlikely to match the Championship club’s valuation for the talented player, the Evening Standard reports.
The Sun had reported that Eze is valued at £20 million – a hefty fee for a player unproven in the Premier League.
According to The Standard, however Crystal Palace are unlikely to lure Eze across London in the final few hours of the transfer deadline day.
Crystal Palace 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.
Especially if a £4 million deal for West Brom’s Nathan Ferguson falls through at the eleventh hour.
Eze’s impressive performance for QPR this season could be attributed to the interest he has been getting from Premier clubs.
He has 10 goal and six assists in 31 appearances in all competitions for QPR this season.
