Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has admitted that the club is currently looking into the possibility of making some signings in the January transfer window.
The Hoops boss opted to draft in a host of players before the start of the 2021/22 campaign after guiding his side to a ninth-place finish in the Championship last season.
Stefan Johansen, Jordy de Wijs, Jimmy Dunne and Moses Odubajo have all gone on to feature regularly for QPR since making permanent moves to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Meanwhile, Sam McCallum initially made a positive start to his loan stint with the Hoops before suffering a significant injury setback earlier this month.
With the left-back set to be sidelined for the foreseeable future, it will be interesting to see whether Warburton decides to strengthen his options in this particular position as Lee Wallace has also struggled with his fitness this season.
Set to face Luton Town this evening, QPR will leapfrog Stoke City in the Championship standings if they beat Nathan Jones’ side.
Making reference to the Hoops’ plans for the upcoming window, Warburton has revealed that the club are currently looking into areas that they may need to address in January.
Speaking to West London Sport ahead of the club’s meeting with Luton, the QPR boss said: “You look at the squad, what needs to be done and what can be done in January.
“Are you happy with what you’ve got?
“Do you need to make some tweaks?
“All of these questions will come up.
“Work is being done now to see what’s available, what might supplement and what we need.”
Although QPR are currently able to call upon the services of some classy operators who have managed to make a positive impact in the Championship this season, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if Warburton opts to strengthen his squad in January.
When you consider that the Hoops have only managed to keep five clean-sheets in the second-tier this season, it could be argued that they may need to bolster their defensive options if they continue to concede on a regular basis.
Warburton could potentially guide QPR to a play-off place next year if he nails his transfer recruitment in the upcoming window.
By securing an eye-catching victory over Luton this evening, the Hoops could use the momentum gained from this result to push on in the Championship over the Christmas period.
