Former Coventry City striker and now pundit Noel Whelan has advised West Ham United to try and pull off a swap deal with Queens Park Rangers for Anglo Nigerian midfielder, Eberechi Eze, which would also see striker Jordan Hugill go in the other direction.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from Loftus Road following interests from Premier League clubs.

And speaking to Football Insider, Whelan who is currently the Matchday co-commentator for all Leeds United games on BBC Radio Leeds said: “I’d like to have Eze on board, I really admire him. I think he’s a fantastic midfield player.
“He’s very comfortable on the ball, very composed, great engine, gets forward, great f going into that final third, I’ve praised him so much when I’ve been at Leeds and seen him, watched him play and I’ve seen him grow and get better.
“He seems like a great acquisition for the futu to get a player like that on board, because I think he’ll be a fantastic player, I really do. It doesn’ surprise me that clubs like West Ham are looking at him.
“It would be a great swap deal. The clubs will happy with that, he’ll have the opportunity to showcase his ability at the very top level with West Ham.”
