QPR are reportedly one of a number of Championship sides interested in Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis ahead of the January transfer window.
According to Football Insider, the R’s are keeping tabs on the 22-year-old with the turn of the year approaching but face competition from Preston North End and Huddersfield Town.
But would he be a good signing for the west London club? And do they need him?
We quizzed our FLW writers for their thoughts…
It’s become quite apparent watching QPR this season that they need a striker in the January transfer window.
Lyndon Dykes and Macauley Bonne are good players, but you just feel that the pair need a little bit of help in the winter.
For what it’s worth, I’m not wholly convinced by Davis, but I guess he’d be another body through the door in west London and that’s not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination.
It’s important that Warburton gets some backing and, if Davis is a player he wants, it’s down to the QPR board to go and get him.
Have any of these 22 players ever been in QPR’s academy?
I’m unsure here.
I think Davis would be a good signing for them in the sense he adds another option up top and that is what they need but he provides them largely with another version of what they’ve got in Lyndon Dykes.
Is he needed is the real thing I’m stuck on? QPR need a striker that is more prolific, a player that can sniff out goals and Davis simply isn’t that – he only has a couple of league goals in the last four years.
I think he’d have an impact but QPR need to add a goalscorer this January more than anything else and that should be the priority.
I think he’s a much-needed addition.
QPR lost a lot of goal threat over the course of the summer with Jordan Hugill and Ebere Eze moving on.
Lyndon Dykes has been impressive since joining, but the goals haven’t quite been there, and more attacking impetus is needed.
Davis is a quick, powerful striker who is very strong and would add a real focal point in the final third.
He’d offer something different to what they currently have, which is what’s most important.
