QPR look set to complete the signing of Danish youngster Marco Ramkilde after the player has impressed on a trial.

Ramkilde, 21, will initially play for Rangers’ development side, as per reports from West London Sport.

After joining on trial a good three weeks ago, the club has clearly had the opportunity to take a good look at the player, and it seems like he’s done enough for them to take a risk on him.

The youngster has been a free agent after leaving Danish club Aab Aalborg last year. While he was there, he was only able to record five senior appearances for the club, without scoring any goals.

Furthermore, he has played for the Denmark national side throughout his youth career, having played nine games and scoring three goals for the U19s.

Should we sign Jordan Hugill in the summer?

Yes, for sure

Yes, for sure

We can do better

We can do better

While those stats are hardly encouraging for someone who is just the same age as the club’s superstar in Eberechi Eze, he clearly has enough about him for the club to feel like he is worth signing up.

Perhaps with QPR’s form on a considerable upwards curve, they feel as if they could do with an extra number in there for a centre forward, as Jordan Hugill seems to be the only out and out striker at the club, so he could be needed for back up.

He’s still doing a great job, though, with the man on loan from West Ham racking up 11 goals from his 35 games.

Nevertheless, there is still somewhat of a void left as Nahki Wells departed the club. The Bermudian managed to score 13 times from his 26 appearances, and while QPR don’t have the options or resources to sign someone of that calibre from the free agent list, they may as well take a cheap punt on Ramkilde.

After all, if his wages are low, there is little risk involved.
