Can QPR Turn Their Fortunes Around By Signing This Sensational Championship Striker

Queens Park Rangers are having a terrible season so far in the Championship. QPR are currently going through a five-match losing streak and they are just three points above Blackburn Rovers, who are the floating in the relegation zone in the 22nd position.

Ian Holloway has seen little to no firepower in his team lately and with the transfer window coming up, he will be desperately looking to add more reinforcements in his attacking third. The highest top scorers in his team have been Sebastian Polter and Tjaronn Chery, who have managed to bag a meagre 4 goals in their last 20 and 22 appearances respectively.

QPR have been blunt in front of the goal so far and a lack of prolific goal scorer has been a root cause why Holloway’s man is dwelling in the 9th place in the Championship. Rangers are one of those lucky squads to have little to no injuries this season and they have till floundered in their campaign.

Middlesbrough v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Holloway is desperately waiting the transfer period to commence as the Rangers are linked with a host of players. The latest one to emerge out of the rumour mill is Middlesbrough striker Jordan Rhodes. The striker has been a sensation in Championship for long and was one of the forwards to help Boro secure a promotion in the Premier League last season.

However, Aitor Karanka seems to have forgotten his attributes as the boss has opted for Viktor Fischer, Adama Traoré and Álvaro Negredo in the attack, reducing Rhodes to a bench player.

He has managed just 208 minutes in Premier League so far in just 6 appearances. However, this doesn’t reflect his actual potential. He has been a phenomenal striker in the Championship and has spent his best years in Blackburn Rovers, where he scored 82 goals and registered 13 assists in 154 games. He joined Middlesbrough in January last season and has managed only 18 appearances, but has still bagged 6 goals.

Rhodes will be having many suitors in the likes of Aston Villa, West Ham United and even Celtic if he decides to leave Riverside. Hence, landing him will be an uphill task for Rangers. There is another major problem in landing him too. Rhodes comes in the region of around £60k-a-week wage, which doesn’t seem quite payable by Rangers, especially at a time when they are crippled in the transfer war chest and they are yet to sort out the Financial Fair Play squabble with the Football League.

However, as Rangers enter the second half of the season when the schedule becomes more hectic as the FA Cup resumes, squad depth will be crucial for them.
