Reports from local media in Brighton have suggested that Queens Park Rangers could make a late move for their striker Tomer Hemed.

The 31-year-old striker made the move to the Amex Stadium back in the summer of 2015 and he played a big part in their promotion to the Premier League in the season of 2016/17 making a total of 41 appearances with a return of 14 goals.

In total his Brighton and Hove Albion tally stands at 74 starting appearances, 34 substitute showings with a return of 33 goals. He did only score two goals in the top-flight last year though as he found game time more limited with competition at the club increasing.

With Brighton strengthening further and the Israeli international seeming to slip further down the pecking order given the shirt numbers they announced for the campaign, the Argus speculate that he could be the next out the door and with a number of Championship clubs expressing an interest in him last season apparently, the fact he could potentially be guaranteed good first-team action with us makes us a prospect for his capture.

Whether there’s any truth to this, the loan window doesn’t close until the end of the month so if he’s not in by 5pm tonight it shouldn’t be read into really.
