English Premier League club, Arsenal are also part of the suitors, interested in the signature of QPR star Eberechi Eze, alongside others.

QPR are expecting to part ways with the Nigerian international this summer window having learned a lot of interest in the player from English Premier League sides.

The latest report now reveals that Crystal Palace have gone ahead of the North London outfit with a £16m bid but it was rejected with the Hoops hoping to get a better deal for the player.

The Eagles are keen to strengthen their attack ahead of next season and see Eze as a perfect option after seeing him excel in the Championship this season.

However, the development remains a major hope for the Gunners who are also interested in the signature of Eberechi Eze and it gives the club more time to prepare a bid for the quality forward.

It is now unclear if the Gunners value Eberechi Eze more than £16 million and will be ready to invest such an amount for his signature because of the less need for attackers in the team.

With Arsenal hoping to keep Gabon international striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club for more seasons, there is no way they will seek to invest in another striker.
