West Ham United and Crystal Palace leading chase for Tottenham Hotspur target and QPR’s Eberechi Eze

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, West Ham United are leading the chase for Queens Park Rangers attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze.

Hammers boss David Moyes was in attendance as the 22-year-old scored during his side’s 4-3 win over Millwall on Saturday, but he faces stiff competition from Crystal Palace, while Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be keen on the youngster.

Eze has bagged 13 goals and eight assists in 45 Championship games this term, and he won’t be short of suitors when the summer transfer window opens.

QPR are holding out for £20 million but are expected to accept considerably less for his signature, and West Ham will be looking to land him and boost their fortunes in front of goal.

The Hammers are enjoying the services of one of the English Championship’s best players of the campaign after recruiting Jarrod Bowen for £22 million from Hull City in January.

They had to beat Palace to the signature of the 23-year-old winger who has since scored once and assisted four goals to guarantee them top-flight safety, and they are in battle with the Selhurst Park outfit again over Eze.

Eze plays primarily as a No 10, but he can also operate out wide or as a No 8, and his versatility will come handy for a team like West Ham.

He was on the radar of erstwhile Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, and the Argentine had scouts make detailed assessments of Eze’s game ahead of a potential bid in January, but it appears that the Hammers are now huge favourites to land him.

Antonee Robinson to West Ham: David Moyes scouts left back and cut-price transfer deal

The Hammers manager was watching in the stands as the Latics drew with Chartlon Athletic on Saturday afternoon

By Sam Inkersole

West Ham manager David Moyes was in attendance at Wigan Athletic’s draw with Charlton in the Championship on Sunday and football.london understands he was keeping a close eye on Latics left back Antonee Robinson.

Moyes’ assistant Alan Irvine was also on hand at the Valley to help lend his eye to proceedings as Moyes ran the rule of the talented defender.

Robinson fits the bill of players that Moyes is looking to recruit after the Hammers effectively secured survival in the Premier League on Friday night courtesy of beating Watford 3-1 at London Stadium thanks to a three-goal first half blitz.

The manager has shown his traits with the signings of Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek in January, 23 and 25 respectively. Robinson is only 22 and Moyes is certainly in the market for full backs this summer though he doesn’t know what, if any, money he will have to spend.

Wigan plunging into administration means the Hammers could take advantage and bag Robinson for a cut-price £1.5million according to reports. Robinson saw the £10milion switch to AC Milan fall through in January due to a heart complaint but he has got himself back into the Latics first team since lockdown.

Wigan have already agreed a deal to sell teenager Alfie Devine to Spurs for £500,000 as their financial problems come to light and a fire sale of other players is expected with the transfer window opening on July 27, just one day after the season finishes this Sunday.

Unless you’re an avid Championship viewer then you may not know much about Robinson’s rise to prominence so here is a little profile for you to get to know the Hammers target a little better.

Robinson started his footballing career with Everton, joining their academy setup at the age of 11 and working his way through the ranks all the way to the under-23s, signing his first pro deal with the Toffees at the end of the 2014/15 season.

Despite an injury-plagued couple of years, the left back penned a new two-year contract extension in 2017 before joining Bolton Wanderers on loan at the start of the 2017/18 campaign as he made his first steps into senior football.

He quickly established himself as the first choice left back that season and extended his initial six-month loan until the end of that season, going to make 30 appearances for Wanderers.

Another loan spell followed with Wigan in the 2018/19 season before that switch was made permanent at the end of the season, for a fee believed to be around £2million as Robinson penned a three-year deal at the DW Stadium.

After starring for the Latics, Robinson attracted the attention of Italian giants AC Milan and they had agreed a £10million deal with Wigan on January transfer deadline day, only for the move to fall through as Robinson’s medical revealed an irregular heart rhythm.

Internationally, Robinson has dual nationality status having been born in England in Milton Keynes to an American father.

The USA have seemingly got there first despite Robinson being invited to England under-21 training camps as he made his full debut for the States in May 2018 in a friendly victory over Bolivia where the defender bagged an assist.

Leicester City are also reportedly keen on signing Robinson, especially if they lose Ben Chilwell this summer who is attracting strong interest from Chelsea.

Robinson & Eze fit the profile of the sort we should be looking at.
Need to move quickly though

Eze and Robinson sound a bit more like it, unlike Phil Jones and Lingard
