Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be in pole position to land QPR starlet Eberechi Eze this summer, The Sun has reported.

Manager Jose Mourinho has stated his squad is in need of an overhaul, with the club’s leading scout Brian Carey impressed with the England U21 international Eze in QPR’s last outing against Preston.

Rangers put a £20m price tag on the 21-year-old which has put off the likes of Crystal Palace and Sheffield United, leaving Spurs favourites to seal the deal should the transfer window open this summer.

The midfielder has been one of Mark Warburton’s star performers this season by having a hand in 20 goals so far with 12 goals and eight assists.

With just a year remaining on his Hoops contract, Eze would be free to talk to clubs about a potential move in January, with QPR hopeful of a big-money deal before the next season begins.

Born in Greenwich, Eze was first on the books at Millwall until his release in 2016, when he started working at Tesco, before impressing on trial at Loftus Road.

Rangers' first-team coach Neil Banfield previously revealed that the club would be open to letting some of their top performers leave if the price was right.

“If the offers come in of £20m and £20m-plus, I don’t think there would be many clubs that could turn that down," Banfield told West London Sport.

“Obviously we don’t want them to leave. We’d want them to stay at the club, get the club promoted and play in the Premier League for the Rangers.”
