Clarets Striker Linked With Championship Rivals

Ashley Barnes On Queens Park Rangers Transfer Window List

QPR look like they’re gunning for a busy January transfer window, so far though, the R’s haven’t made any new signings. But new signings look to be on the horizon and they could come thick and fast for Neil Critchley’s side, who currently sit in twelfth place in the Sky Bet Championship table after the opening twenty-six games of the season. Several names have so far been linked with a move to West London and here we look at those players and discuss how likely they are to sign for the R’s this month.

Jamal Lowe

AFC Bournemouth’s Jamal Lowe is the big name being linked with a move to QPR right now, it seems like QPR are in pole position to sign the Jamaican striker on loan with reports. Norwich City have been the team closely linked alongside QPR, but they don’t look very likely in this transfer window given their recent managerial change. QPR boss Neil Critchley has already indicated that he needs goals and a move for Lowe could be a really shrewd one.

Ashley Barnes

Burnley’s Ashley Barnes is an option for QPR with West London Sport revealing that the R’s had been alerted to his possible availability this month, despite the thirty-three year old having played nineteen times in the Sky Bet Championship for league leaders Burnley this season. The Clarets look to be eyeing up a striker signing this month with a few names having been linked and the arrival of another striker could well allow Barnes to move on.

Leighton Clarkson

Yesterday, reports emerged linking QPR, West Brom, and Reading with a loan move for Liverpool midfielder Leighton Clarkson, who is currently on loan with Scottish side Aberdeen. Critchley and Clarkson will have crossed paths during the QPR boss’ time at Anfield, which might yet play a part in Clarkson potentially coming to West London this month.

Malcolm Ebiowei

QPR have been mentioned in the race to sign Crystal Palace youngster Malcolm Ebiowei on loan. At first it seemed like a distant rumour. But then reports revealed that QPR and Palace had spoken about the potential move and that the Eagles were happy for Ebiowei to head to QPR. However, it was also said that Critchley was coy on filling another loan spot with a wide player, as he wants a striker this month. Since, it’s been reported that Hull City are set to sign Ebiowei.
