The England youth star is earning rave reviews for his performance in the English championship with some even drawing similarities in his game to that of former Nigerian star, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha.
With 10 goals and six assists from 26 championship games this season, it is no surprise to see why Ebere Eze is getting all the praises and hype.
Arguably QPR’S player of the season so far, Eze’s performances have caught the attention of Premier League sides like Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.
According to reports, the Lillywhites could make a move for Eze to fill the void of Christian Eriksen who is likely to leave.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are also trying to convince him to switch his international allegiance having represented England at youth levels.
Eze is seen as the solution to the creative problems that have besieged Nigeria since the retirement of Austin Jay-Jay Okocha. The 21-year-old who is also blessed with trickery and dribbling skills is seen as the heir to the Bolton legend.
However a former England international, Ray Hudson as called for caution, hinting it will put unnecessary pressure on the QPR star.

When told Eze is seen as Okocha’s replacement, the former Newcastle star said, that’s high billing”. Nevertheless, it is left to be seen if Eze will commit his international future to Nigeria with the QPR star saying he has yet to make a decision.
