Chelsea planning surprise move for 21-year-old promising attacker

London club are reportedly one of the teams who could take advantage of Eberechi Eze’s changing transfer situation as a move to Tottenham perhaps now looks less likely. U21 England international has shone at Championship club Queens Park Rangers and looks like a talented youngster who could soon make the step up to the Premier League.

Eberechi had been hoping for a move to Spurs, but that now looks less likely following the recent sacking of Mauricio Pochettino. Former Tottenham coach Pochettino had a fine record of trusting and improving young footballers like Eze, so it makes sense that he might’ve been particularly keen on that link-up.

Mauricio’s replacement, Mourinho, certainly has a rather different reputation when it comes to handing chances to youth, so it might not be ideal for him now. London club as one other club to have kept an eye on the 21-year-old ace in recent times, and that could now be the excellent next step for the playmaker.

Since joining Chelsea in the summer, Frank Lampard has done fine work with promoting the club’s academy players, so a youngster like English attacker could fit in well. The west Londoners also need a little more in front-line right now after the summer departure of Eden Hazard, while Pedro and Willian aren’t getting any younger.

Eberechi is a product of Queens Park Rangers youth academy and spent his current career with them. He has vast potential and can become a top-class playmaker if he continuous improvement. In this campaign, Eze already played 20 matches, scored seven goals and provided five assists in all tournaments.
