A recent report has claimed that QPR are thinking about lodging a bid for Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland (Daily Record).

Loftus Road director of football Les Ferdinand was in attendance during Friday night’s Dundee derby to cast his eye over the lethal hitman. Whilst he didn’t net in the 1-1 draw, 19 goals already this season shows he knows where the net is.

Shankland’s name has been touted with big names for the duration of 2019 after a brilliant year in the Championship and it’s no surprise to see more big names linked.

QPR not the only ones watching Shankland

QPR aren’t the only team to have watched Shankland during this match. Other potential suitors include Brentford, Norwich and Everton, who were all present at Friday’s match.


Rangers were another team present at Tannadice. It’s QPR though who are thought to have the most serious interest though and are now considering a January bid.

They’ve already got a few former SPFL men in their ranks, with Dominic Ball, Liam Kelly and Lee Wallace all arriving in London over the summer, having spent last season in Scotland.

QPR have had him watched, but Dundee United won’t let Shankland go for nothing, they’ll be wanting big money.
