David Moyes wants to move on his ‘big two’ midfielder Manu Lanzini and Felipe Anderson as he attempts to raise the cash to bring in exciting QPR star Eberechi Eze.
But Lanzini and Anderson won’t be allowed to leave on the cheap as the cagey Moyes looks to see how the summer market works out in terms of prices.
But there is now doubt that the two South Americans are high on the list of players he would be ready to move on in order to make a bid for the exciting attacking midfielder who would almost certainly be used as a no 10 should he arrive.
QPR – as a cash strapped Championship outfit – want an alleged £20 million for the 22 year old but will probably need to settle for closer to £15 million unless an unlikely high bidding war were to develop with the likes of Palace and Southampton.
With his contract expiring at Loftus Road next June they won’t be in a position to demand the earth as they could lose him on a free at that time.
The Hammers have made it clear that Moyes has to sell to buy but there are unlikely to be too many PL clubs ready to splash major cash for Anderson who is more likely to attract interest from Europe whilst the manager will wait to see what emerges in relation to Lanzini.
Moyes – discussing the market – said:“I think you have got to remember that the club spent £200 million [recently],” “We’ll try and add to it if we can, if we can’t we’ll go with what we’ve got and there are a lot who can improve and a lot who have since lockdown,
“Micky Antonio is an example of that. We’ll try and get the best out of the players and if we can add to it we will do.”
Eze has an option to extend his contact by QPR so is effectively under contract until 2022 so I cant see any negotiations happening especially not down to £15 million
Doesn’t have to accept option offer
Not sure the player has a say. The club like putting in the option for them to extend a contract for a further year. Similar to thee two here: https://www.qpr.co.uk/news/club-news/manning-and-osayi-samuel-contracts-extended/
In other words he has two years left
Nice post Eddie I used to watch bowles and marsh when hammers were not at home sometimes soft spot for you boys and eze would love him here . Problem being we have an inept board and a slow do as your told coach who isn’t anything but a yes man . His bought two good buys and one useless one up to now but maybe if he can unload the useless one in part ex he might actually be considered as doing better than I expected. Good luck next season Eddie.
As a qpr fan I feel eye could play at the highest level….barca, real. you may laugh but this boy is the real deal. He is already better than most of the players in the premier but has been playing on a different stage. He has the right mindset due to the many rejections he has faced from other clubs. I will be gutted to see him leave but that’s football. his control of the ball is like nothing I have seen for many years and he is worth the entry fee alone!. 20 million and teams are delaying???…would be five times that in 4 years given the right coaching and playing time. Love that boy eze!
Huggill and a fee, agree with Eddie who is a better judge than us watching him week in and week out, Eze like Watkins has that desire and work ethic combined with ability. We should get them in, will help transform the team, the other players can be sold in January if needs be.
You are right that his contract ends next June. But QPR have the option of extending it for another year whether Eze wants to stay or not. So don’t think you will get him on the cheap. 💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷💷
