helsea are reportedly one of the clubs who could take hold of Eberechi Eze’s changing move situation as a transfer to Tottenham perhaps now looks less likely.

The 21-year-old forward has shone at Championship side Queens Park Rangers and looks like a skilled young player who could soon make the step up to the Premier League.

According to the Sun, Eberechi Eze had been hoping for a move to Tottenham, but that now seems less likely following the recent sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.

Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had an excellent record of trusting and improving young players like Eberechi Eze, so it makes sense that he might’ve been particularly keen on that link-up.

Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement, Jose Mourinho, certainly has a slightly different reputation when it comes to handing opportunities to youth, so it might not be ideal for him now.

The Sun mentions Chelsea as one other club to have kept an eye on Eberechi Eze in recent times, and that could now be the perfect next step for the England Under-21 international.

Since joining the Blues in the summer, Frank Lampard has done beautiful work with promoting the club’s academy players, so a youngster like Eberechi Eze could fit in well.

The west Londoners also need a little more in attack right now after the summer departure of Eden Hazard, while Pedro and Willian aren’t getting any younger.
