The road back to the top tier of English football isn’t a walk in the park. With the likes of Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion, things are shaping up pretty well for a handful of sides in their quest of seeing the spectacular rays of the Premier League once again.
However, Queens Park Rangers are already thirteen points behind the play-off spots in the Championship. They are desperately searching for an impetus to steer them back in the contention of getting back in the groove.
Reports reveal the Hoops are looking forward to rope in Bristol City’s Luke Freeman in order to add flair and sparkle to their side. The speculation has been further fuelled when Freeman was omitted from Bristol City’s squad to face Cardiff City.
Ian Holloway is very keen to add a wide man and Freeman ticks a lot of boxes. The 24-year-old, who came through the ranks of Arsenal, has been one of the better players for City for a quite some time now. He is someone who can ply his trade anywhere in the attacking zone; on the wings or even as a striker up front. And let’s not forget that he is accustomed to the role of wing-back as well.
For the Robins, a lot of wonder goals and impeccable passes have been produced by Freeman after he was signed from Stevenage in 2014. He isn’t afraid of doing things differently, implementing into practice the knowledge that he had acquired over the years. He is yet to sign the contract put forth to him by Lee Johnson and this is why it is the right opportunity for QPR to lure him to their ranks.
Equally effective and efficient from both the foot, he dribbles meticulously well past the defenders and confuses them with quick reflexes. At some point, one could see him chalking out wicked crosses and at the other point; a dangerous corner-kick from him was available to be witnesses. He aims to keep possession, toils hard to win the ball back, united the defenders with the attackers and never refrains from falling back when necessary.
Freeman has made as many as 18 appearances in Championship this season for Bristol City, having scored a couple of goals and creating 28 chances. Unarguably, he needs to better the precision of his passes, though, with the factor of age by his side, he can brush his edges and excel himself. The London-based outfit are in for a player who is valued in gold and will only appreciate in due course of time and should not refrain from making an imminent move.
