Queens Park Rangers are considering a move for Danish striker Marco Ramkilde, reports London Football News.
Ramkilde, 21, has been a free agent since being released by Danish outfit Aalborg at the end of last season and is currently on trial with QPR.
The 6’2 striker was a graduate of the club’s youth academy and made his first-team debut in 2016, aged 18.
He made a handful of appearances in the 2016/17 season but has since been exiled at the club, and they willingly released him last year after not making a first-team appearances in almost two years.
A prolific member with the Danish national side from U16 level to U19, Ramkilde looks like a good prospect, and featured for QPR U23s in their 3-2 victory over Watford earlier this week – helped the R’s deal Watford their first-defeat since September.
Aramide Oteh was on hand to score a brace, whilst Olamide Shodio chipped in with a goal too.
QPR need some permanent players in time for next season. They’ve a lot of loan-players and a lot in the final months of their contract, and with an already thin squad, Mark Warburton needs numbers in before the summer.

Jordan Hugill and Oteh are the only registered strikers at QPR right now, and with Hugill set to return to West Ham when his QPR loan runs out in the summer, the attacking department is probably the shortest at QPR.
There’s not a lot to go off with Ramkilde, but from his experience with Denmark’s youth teams, he should have a bit of something about him.
Hopefully QPR will bring him in and give him a chance – a new, imported and unproven player will excite a lot of fans, and will give QPR some much-needed squad numbers ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
