QPR advised to monitor Brentford player who admires the King.



Queens Park Rangers have improved under Marti Cifuentes’ leadership and are now hopeful of avoiding relegation to League One.

They began the season with former Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth in charge, but he was fired at the end of October after losing six consecutive games.

With the club at second-bottom in the Championship, they hired Cifuentes from Swedish side Hammarby, and he has done an excellent job.

The R’s are now four points clear of the bottom three, and with eight clubs below them, there is a real chance that the Spanish coach will guide the club to the second division again next season.

While survival remains their top goal, they will keep a close eye on future plans.

Omaru King of Brentford is one player they could want to sign for next season.

QPR could sign attacker who idolises Eze

King is an attacker currently on the books of QPR’s fierce rivals Brentford, but he could be a guy worth keeping an eye on for a loan deal in the future.

The 17-year-old was named one of The Evening Standard’s Top 50 London teenagers due to his strong performances for the Bees’ academy teams.

He is regarded as “the most exciting prospect” in Brentford’s Under-18s squad, having arrived in February 2023.

He is reported to look up to one of QPR’s finest players of the last decade, Ebere Eze, and to play similarly to the Crystal Palace star, taking on defenders out wide and gliding past them with his close control.

QPR’s team is quite old in comparison to the rest of the division, and they might need a young forward to freshen up their attack ahead of the season.

As with any young athlete, there is no assurance that he will be successful, but it is a low-risk, high-reward deal in their opinion.

Brentford may also appreciate the idea of one of their young players going on loan to a Championship club that isn’t too far away.

After impressing in U18 football this season, a promotion to the senior team might be the next logical step in his career.

This would not be the first time QPR signed someone from Brentford, and it would not be the last

While signing King could benefit both parties, QPR fans may be hesitant to sign a player from their rivals.

However, transfers between the two clubs happen more frequently than you may expect.

The three most recent transactions between the two clubs have all been from the Bees to Loftus Road. The most recent transfer was Yoann Barbet’s move from Brentford to QPR in the summer of 2019.

While moves between the two clubs are uncommon, this should not deter QPR from making a bid for a genuine talent in King, who could inject new life into an old squad.

Next season may be a year too soon, but he’s someone the R’s should keep an eye on, and the fact that he idolizes Eze suggests that he might be interested in a stint in W12.
