The youthful QPR star Eberechi Eze targets Arsenal move
Eberechi Eze, the youthful QPR star is among the greatest prospects to emerge from the Championship this season with reports indicating that his ‘dream move’ would be a switch to Arsenal this summer.
According to Sky Sports, Eze will be allowed to go to Arsenal if a £20m bid comes in. And if it was down to the 22-year-old attacking midfielder himself his ‘dream’ would be to play for Arsenal, which was the team he grew up supporting and spent time at their youth set up. “It started at Arsenal. I was 13 when I was released. That was the worst one,” he said in January.
“I remember crying in my room for a solid week, my mum telling me that it’s going to be OK but not being able to get over it.
“Then I went to Fulham and I was finally starting to enjoy my football again. We played Arsenal a few months later but, when I went over to shake the academy manager’s hand, I started welling up. All the feelings came back.
“Over and over again. As much as I wasn’t happy at Millwall, it was a platform to play. I didn’t expect to be released, but I was so used to the feeling. “As soon as I went into [Neil Harris’] office I was thinking ‘this could go left’. You have to try and just get on with it but it was definitely difficult to cope with.”
