QPR forward Nakhi Wells could be departing the club in the near future, with his parent club looking to make the most of his services to try and secure another player.
It is claimed by the Daily Mail that Burnley could take advantage of Bristol City’s interest in the Bermudian striker to try and sing Josh Brownhill this month.
With Josh Brownhill having a £7m release clause in his contract becoming active in the summer, it is thought that Wells could be used as a tool to try and get a potential deal done a bit sooner than that.
The report claims that Burnley could well recall Wells ahead of any January sale, with the 29-year-old’s 13 goals in 26 games making him a valuable player, even if he is not in with a look-in for the first-team squad.
The Clarets’ ears are allegedly open for offers on the attacker this month for the player. His contract does expire in the summer, but the club has the option of extending it, which is pretty much a given considering the money he’s worth.
Will we be able to keep hold of Wells this window?
QPR will be crossing their fingers that they can hang onto their top scorer this season. It seems as if Sean Dyche’s side are prepared for a bidding war, but if no one decides to snap him up then there could be a chance he stays on, even with Bristol Live stating that he will be recalled.
13 goals from 20 starts is obviously a fantastic return for Rangers, and you’d imagine if he left they would want someone lined up instantly to replace those goals.
Bristol Live report that Bristol City and Wigan Athletic are the two most notable teams chasing his signature, but they do suggest that the Rs could well go in for him due to having him for the past 18 months.
No exact figure has been suggested, but the report claims he could be available for somewhere in the ballpark of around £5m.
