Crystal Palace have identified Queens Park Rangers forward Eberechi Eze as a transfer target this summer.
The Eagles ended their 2019-20 Premier League campaign in 14th place, with a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Selhurst Park ending a wretched run of 7 consecutive league defeats.
Roy Hodgson’s side scored the second-fewest goals in the Premier League this season, with only Norwich City – relegated in bottom place – having a worse strike rate.
There is a need therefore for Hodgson to freshen up his attack, as a lack of goals combined with an ageing squad is a cause for concern amongst Crystal Palace supporters.
Palace’s reported interest in 22-year-old Eberechi Eze from QPR will no doubt perk up some of those dubious Eagles fans, with the forward having bagged 14 goals in all competitions for the West London outfit this season.
West Ham United are also said to be keen on the England U21 international, but it’s understood Crystal Palace are in pole position over a possible switch.
