Queens Park Rangers playmaker Eberechi Eze is reportedly dreaming of a move to Arsenal this summer given he supported the Gunners during his early years – and Arsenal fans have responded on Twitter.
Eze, 22, has been in stunning form for QPR of late – scoring 14 goals and creating eight more for the Championship side, playing in all 46 league games for Mark Warburton’s men. But he has entered the final year of his contract.
Plenty of Premier League clubs have been linked with a move for Eze, who left Arsenal’s youth academy in 2011 aged just 13. The Sun claim Palace made QPR an offer, but were unwilling to match his £20million asking price.
Now, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has claimed in his transfer column that Eze’s dream move would be transfer to Arsenal – despite his exit as a teenager. He has supported Arsenal since he was a child.
The Gunners are likely to want an attacking midfielder and have been strongly linked with Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho and out-of-contract Willian. Mesut Ozil has been linked with a summer exit.
Arsenal supporters reacted on Twitter to the reported news that England Under-21 international Eze is dreaming of a move back to north London – nine years after leaving the club, and many have urged their side get a deal done.
Eze to Arsenal for only 20 mil? I'm all for that!
Arsenal fan too, so let's make it happen

Look at what Arteta’s done, he’s got players begging to join the Arsenal again, my manager🙌

I'd take Eze, my dad's a QPR season ticket holder and he bangs on about him all the time. Only seen him play myself a few times but he definitely looks like he's worth the punt

Eze is a quality player. I’d bet on Arteta to develop him.
