QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand has admitted that he and his scouting team are on the lookout for potential summer targets.
While speaking to Sky Sports News, the Premier League legend said that with Rangers’ training ground being closed, all of the club staff have been working from home.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean they’ve been sitting at home and twiddling their thumbs. In fact, the cub chief claims that he and his recruitment team have been watching lots of past footage and identifying players for future transfers.
He said: “That’s what myself and the scouting team have been doing.
“Obviously there’s been no games, so we’ve not been able to go out and watch games.
“But we’re on the computers just looking at players being sent to us for when football gets back to normality – players that perhaps we’ll look at for the summer.”
If Eze had to go, where would you like to see him?
While Ferdinand may be doing lots of work behind the scenes for future incomings, there hasn’t been much speculation linking them to players, apart from a few reports.
The club has managed to get one deal over the line, however, with Marco Ramkilde coming through the door at the club after a successful trial. He has signed an 18-month contract which will see him start out for the R’s’ development team.
Another rumour coming out of the club is their interest within Bristol Rovers’ Alfie Gilmour. Reports suggest they join a host of Premier League teams in their interest for the centre back, who has become a pivotal part of Ben Garner’s Rovers side. The Gas academy prospect is also wanted by Millwall, as well as Premier League clubs Southampton and Bournemouth.
However, the most frequent rumours over the past few weeks have all been surrounding QPR’s star man Eberechi Eze. Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to be interested, and with QPR setting their price at around £20m as per the Sun, a lot of their potential business may well depend on the attacking midfielder’s future.
