English and Nigerian footballer Eberechi Eze could be playing in the Premier League next season after being linked with a move to join West Ham United.
Playing in the English topflight will be a great achievement for the Queens Park Rangers' attacking midfielder who has been superb in the Championship.
According to the latest development, West Ham United gaffer David Moyes has been monitoring Eze for a long time and wants the 22-year-old to play under him.
The former Everton handler was even said to have traveled to watch Eze last weekend in his side's impressive 4-3 win over Millwall.

However, West Ham United will have to avoid defeat in their remaining two games this term in the Premier League for them not to relegate.
For now, they are currently occupying 15th position with 37 points and are only three points above 17th placed Watford who are also fighting to escape relegation.
Maintaining their topflight status will help West Ham United in their chase to sign Eze, but they must also be aware that other Premier League sides are interested.
Tottenham and Crystal Palace are the other sides who are interested in signing Eze this summer.
Eze has played 45 games for Queens Park Rangers this season and has scored 13 goals.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Gernot Rohr finally spoke out about inviting Queens Park Rangers star Eze and Arsenal sensation Bukayo Saka to play for the national team.
The English-born Nigerians have been shining brightly in the Championships and the Premier League and the pair have featured for England at under-age levels.
But both Eze and Saka can still switch allegiance to play for the Super Eagles just as the likes of Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina and Joe Aribo did.
However, the national team handler Rohr has authoritatively stated that no player will be begged to wear the Green and White colours of Nigeria.
The German tactician who recently signed a new deal stated that there are good players in every department of his squad but he will not shut the door to players who can improve the team.
