Fans of QPR have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which discusses midfielder Ilias Chair.
The post, which was uploaded by QPR HQ on Twitter, poses the question to fans as to whether they believe Chair could become QPR‘s new star player in the event that Eberechi Eze leaves the club this summer.
In reaction to the post, fans of the club have flocked to have their say, with many suggesting that the 22-year-old does indeed have what it takes to become QPR’s next star.
Do you think Ilias Chair could become QPR's new star player?

I hope so. Although I also hope Eze stays ?
Potential is there, wether or not it happens, quite a different player, would say he’s more similar to freeman

He’ll have to be be. Don’t think he will be to the level of Eze, at least not next year. But has talent and raw potential

What do we think?
The £1.8 million-rated Chair has impressed for QPR this season, scoring four goals and providing five assists over his 35 Championship appearances, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.77 when playing in his usual attacking midfield role.
Despite these impressive figures, the Morocco U23 international certainly has some catching up to do if he is to emulate the season of Eze this year, as his Hoops teammate has scored a remarkable 12 goals and provided eight assists over his 37 Championship appearances this term.
However, it would appear from their comments that many of the QPR fans believe that Chair does indeed have the potential to hit the heights of Eze in the future.
