Crystal Palace have had a bid rejected by Queens Park Rangers for highly rated forward Eberechi Eze.

Eze has impressed for QPR in the Championship this season, with Palace amongst a host of clubs expressing an interest in the forward.

The 22-year-old bagged 14 goals in English football’s second tier last term, but the Eagles’ alleged £12m offer for Eze was rebuffed by QPR on Monday.

The West London side are said to be wanting closer to £20m for the player, although it’s understood £16m may be enough to secure Eze’s services.

Roy Hodgson faces competition from fellow Premier League sides West Ham and West Brom in the race for the England U21 international, who may be considered a replacement for Wilfried Zaha should the Ivorian leave Selhurst Park this summer.
