Arsenal handed major boost as QPR collapse Palace bid for Nigerian

Timothy Aiyeku



English Premier League club, Arsenal have been handed a major hope in their chase of QPR attacker Eberechi Eze as the offer already submitted by Crystal Palace has been rejected.

Apparently, the North London outfit are yet to submit an offer for the Nigerian international which means they are still lagging behind in his chase but there is a handful of hope in their interest with the rejection of Crystal Palace.

The 22-year-old has been astonishing for QPR in the championship with his performance as he scored 14 goals with eight assists in the just-concluded season. He has therefore attracted interest from Premier League sides.

It is reported that the Eagles submitted a bid of £12 million for the star forward which is far away from the £20 million asking price by the Championship club.

This development leaves the North London club with the opportunity to land Eberechi Eze should they submit the right offer as the player is also eyeing a career in the English Premier League.

Commentators have argued that the North London outfit might abandon their interest in the Nigerian international forward should they land Brazilian international, Willian from Chelsea and Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona in this summer transfer window.
