Crystal Palace are set to announce the signing of highly rated Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze, in a deal believed to be worth close to £20m.

Speculation regarding Eze’s future at Loftus Road had ramped up in recent weeks, with Crystal Palace and West Ham United known Premier League admirers.

And it looks like Roy Hodgson has won the race for the 22-year-old’s signature, with Eze set to be unveiled at Selhurst Park in the coming days in a £19.5m deal say the Evening Standard.

The impressive forward was a key component for QPR last campaign, starting all 46 of Rangers’ Championship fixtures, and scoring 14 times.

Eze becomes the second youngster to make the switch to Palace this season, with 19-year-old full back Nathan Ferguson arriving from West Bromwich Albion earlier on in the transfer window.
