Hasselbaink targets Nottingham Forest star as first signing



Queens Park Rangers are plotting a move for Nottingham Forest captain, Henri Lansbury, according to the Nottingham Post.


Hoops’ boss, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is still in search of his first win as manager of Queens Park Rangers, having taken over the role back in December, and the former Chelsea star will be looking to strengthen his squad during the transfer window.

Lansbury has attracted interest from a range of Championship and Premier League clubs since signing for Forest in 2012.

The Arsenal academy graduate would give Hasselbaink’s side a different dynamic in the centre of midfield, should the former Netherlands international make a move for the talented Lansbury.

Hasselbaink’s QPR face a trip to the City Ground this weekend as they face Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday, and whilst gaining his first victory as manager of the Hoops will be at the forefront of his mind, Saturday’s game my prove to be a perfect opportunity for the Dutchman to scout Lansbury further.

Queens Park Rangers currently sit 16th in the Sky Bet Championship, picking up just three points in their last five games, with draws against Huddersfield Town, Bristol City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Forest are currently 14th in the Sky Bet Championship, a point above QPR, but have only picked up one win in thier last five games, drawing four.
