Leeds United are rivalling Nottingham Forest to the signing of QPR midfielder, Massimo Luongo according to London Football News.
It had previously been reported by West London Sport that QPR were willing to sell Luongo before the new season gets underway in August.
The 26-year-old made 41 league appearances for the Hoops as they finished 19th in the Championship table, and despite their poor finish to the season, he seemingly has made a good impression on some clubs.
Leeds could potentially be in the market for a central midfielder, with Kalvin Phillips being linked with a move to Aston Villa (according to The Telegraph).
The Whites narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League as they were beaten by Derby County in their play-off semi-final, which condemned them to yet another season in the Championship.
Whereas Nottingham Forest will be looking at adding some much-needed depth to their midfield options, as Martin O’Neill prepares for the new term.
Luongo has just a year to run on his current contract at Loftus Road, and it’s believed that he is one of the higher earners currently at the club, which could mean they decide to sell him before the season starts.
This would be a great signing for both teams interested here.
I’d be slightly concerned if I was a Leeds fan though, as this could hint that Kalvin Phillips could be on his way out of the club, with the midfielder attracting interest from Aston Villa.
Luongo played regularly for QPR in the Championship last season, and would be a certain starter for Forest, and would certainly challenge Phillips and Klich for a starting spot at Leeds if he was to sign for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
