Brentford director of football Rasmus Ankersen has told Get West London that the club are willing to sell striker Andre Gray if the price is right.
Gray joined the Bees from Luton Town last summer, and went on to make 45 league appearances, scoring 16 times as the club made a surprise march to the Championship play-offs.
The 23-year-old’s contribution has caught the eye of QPR manager Chris Ramsey; who was unable to save the Hoops from relegation back to the Championship after only three wins in 15 games.
Ramsey is rumoured to be interested in taking Gray to Lofus Road, and despite the former Shrewsbury youngster being seen as important to Brentford manager Marinus Dijkhuizen’s plans, QPR may have been thrown a lifeline in the deal.
Speaking to Get West London, the Bees’ director of football Rasmus Ankerson revealed that he would listen to offers for the striker, if he receives a suitable bid.
“We’re not actively working to move players on but if the price is right for certain players we’ll be happy to negotiate with interested clubs,” he said.
“I don’t think the transfer window has picked up yet but it’ll be a busy few months.”
He did, however, admit that he is hopeful that he can retain Gray for next season.
“Yes, I hope so, and I hope he has a good season. He’s a good goal-striker, I hope he is in,” he added.
