First, it’s nothing shy of brilliant to see Leeds United back where they belong, in the top flight of English football. North Yorkshire is a special place and Leeds is a very special one-club city. The irony of Tottenham fans that endlessly mumbled us about ‘doing a Leeds’ must really sting right now.
Mauricio Pochettino was reportedly scouting Eberechi Eze in November last year, just before the Argentinian was sacked from Spurs. Since then, the 22-year-old has continued to improve with Championship regulars, Queens Park Rangers, were the boy has racked up an impressive 13 goals and provided eight assists this season.
Interest from West Ham has been mooted, but Hammers News reported that they felt Eze had more of an eye for a Spurs move, however SunSport understands that Leeds have been in contact with QPR since January, with the hope of securing the playmaker’s services this summer.
If Marcelo Bielsa is looking for the occasional slide rule pass and a lad capable of carrying the ball, then his luck might just be in, with Eberechi Eze.
