Arguably the most outstanding midfielder in the Championship signed off the season with a brilliant goal at the Hawthorns on Wednesday evening to the delight of many
Queens Park Rangers star Ebere Eze has been flooded with a downpour of praises after he smashed in an absolute blinder in the R’s thrilling 2-2 draw at promoted West Bromwich Albon.
The England youth international has enjoyed a season like no other, churning out one brilliant performance after another, despite QPR not being able to maintain a consistent run of good results.
Mark Warburton’s side will remain in the Championship next term after finishing outside the playoff places, but Eze could be playing Premier League football on the back of a great year.
The 22-year-old has been under the radar of several top-flight clubs, including Tottenham and West Ham, and finding an elite suitor should not be difficult for a young man who scored 14 goals and created eight assists in 46 second-tier games.
At West Brom on Game Week 46, Robinson and Diangana had found the back of the net to hand the Baggies the advantage after a Manning opener for QPR.
It was Eze, yet again, who came to the visitors’ rescue with a sublime finish to earn a share of the points, and in so doing, he became the most prolific QPR midfielder in a league campaign since Adel Taarabt netted 19 times in the 2010-11 campaign.
Fans took to social media site Twitter to applaud a player who could, in the not-too-distant future, turn out in the green-and-white colours of the Super Eagles, should the Nigeria Football Federation have a breakthrough in their plans.
Ebere Eze. Absolute class act. Destined for the very top. What a way to sign out 👏🔥 #QPR— Sean Gallagher (@Sean_Gallagher9) July 22, 2020
Really hope I get to see Ebere Eze play at Loftus Road in the flesh again soon. Phenomenal. ⭐️ 🧨 ⭐️ https://t.co/TY9tyjSa3m— David O'Leary (@DOLeary100) July 22, 2020
Assuming this is his last goal as a QPR player, what an absolute pleasure and a treat it has been to watch Ebere Eze every week. Destined for *far* bigger things. An outrageously talented young man. And that, below, is a pretty fitting sign-off. https://t.co/rC2iDRomow— Nick Friend (@NickFriend1) July 22, 2020
Pleased with that performance and the commitment we showed. As for Ebere Eze he is, in my incredibly biased opinion, the most gifted player in the Championship and deserves to play in the Prem. Show us the money #QPR https://t.co/c7LO4ou6tL— Harry Oakley (@HOakley7) July 22, 2020
Ebere Eze became only the 3rd QPR player in the last 12 seasons to start every league match.— Hoops & Dreams (@HoopsDreams_QPR) July 22, 2020
He is the first forward to achieve the feat since @kevingallen10 15 years ago.
The season started and ended with wonderful goals from Eze. Apt.
Ebere Eze is so far and away the best player in the championship it’s a joke— CCCU’s GOAT (@DoubleUEvans) July 22, 2020
Ebere Eze is a baller btw ⚽️— Tan Larry (@ManLikeTan) July 22, 2020
Ebere Eze will be very sorely missed. Wonderful player. Deserves to go to a top end club, which obvious rules out West Ham's interest. #WBAQPR— Dr Brian O'Halloran (@playingwithdust) July 22, 2020
Eze is currently valued at €9 million as per transfermarkt, but interested clubs may have to shell out €20 million to convince QPR to part with their most-prized asset.
