Queens Park Rangers need to sign a new striker.
That was obvious before January and became even more obvious when Sebastian Polter returned to his native Germany to join FC Union Berlin.
This leaves Idrissa Sylla and Conor Washington as QPR’s main two striker options and the latter has been extremely disappointing during his time in West London.
They have been priced out of a loan move for Arouna Kone of Everton and they remain actively interested in Rotherham’s Danny Ward.
However, I believe they should consider making a move for West Ham United youngster Ashley Fletcher.
At 6’4” he provides an aerial presence.
He is strong and powerful but he also is very quick; these physical attributes make him a handful for any defence and it equips him well for life in the second tier.
He enjoyed a profitable loan spell at Barnsley last season, where he netted in the play-off final victory over Millwall.
He learned his trade at Manchester United; one of the best academies around and was actually above Marcus Rashford in the pecking order last season.
West Ham fans rate him very highly and have called for Fletcher to get more playing time.
With the arrival of Scott Hogan edging closer to completion, Fletcher might be allowed to leave on loan.
A number of Championship clubs will be interested in the England youth international, who opened his account for the Hammers in the cup against former club Manchester United.
It makes sense for all three parties for him to make a move to QPR, where he would certainly provide an alternative option up top and be a genuine goal threat for the Hoops.
QPR fans – would you take Fletcher at Loftus Road? Who would you like to see arrive up front? Let us know in the comments below…
