Queens Park Rangers have been linked with a move for Dundee United’s Lawrence Shankland.
Mark Warburton’s side have been touted with a move for Shankland throughout the first-half of the season.
QPR could be set to lose their top-scorer Nahki Wells – Burnley have been pushing for a permanent move for the 29-year-old and now Bristol City have stepped in, and have reportedly made an enquiry about the forward.
Shankland though could be the ready-replacement that R’s fans want, and he’s had a pretty impressive season so far:
With 25 goals in 25 games in all competitions for Dundee United, Shankland has been one of the stories of the season in Scotland. The 24-year-old has enjoyed a fine debut season for Dundee United – his side sit top of the Scottish Championship, 17 points ahead of Inverness CT in 2nd.
Their good form is largely down to the prolific nature of Shankland. He’s worked his way up the Scottish leagues and was rewarded with a move to United in the summer, but now it looks as though he could be on the move again.
QPR first stated their interest in Shankland earlier in the season. Warburton signed a host of players in the summer but a lot of them were loan-deals, and older players too, the likes of Wells and Jordan Hugill.
It means that the club will be pretty light on numbers come the summer, especially in the striker department, and fans have been desperate for Warburton to sign a permanent figure in this window.

Warburton will have to move quickly for Shankland – there are less than two weeks left of the transfer window, and they don’t want to be left hanging if Wells departs the club at the last minute.
