QPR are one of many clubs keeping tabs on AFC Wimbledon midfielder Jack Rudoni, according to talkSPORT.
The 19-year-old was an ever-present figure in the Don’s League One campaign, as they escaped relegation to the fourth tier.
Rudoni started all four games in an April run which saw his side pick up maximum points, score 14 goals and concede just three. This was a remarkable period that helped to save Mark Robinson’s side from the drop despite not managing to win their remaining four games of the season.
In January 2020, talkSPORT reported that the teenager, then 18, was subject of interest from Premier League and Championship sides ahead of his contract expiring at the end of that season.
Despite the interest, Rudoni did go on to sign a new deal last summer and his loyalty to the club was rewarded with regular involvement in League One in the 2020/21 campaign.

Interest in the 19-year-old has not subsided though and with fellow midfielder Andre Dozzell set to complete his move to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, Rudoni could follow him through the door this summer.
Tom Carroll’s expected departure from Mark Warburton’s side could speed up developments on this potential transfer.
Even though Carroll is set to leave, one reassuring fact for AFC Wimbledon fans who want to keep hold of him is that QPR signed another central midfielder in Sam Field last month.
With all these midfield signings, Rudoni is a man who is playing regular and valuable senior football at 19-years-old and may be deterred by a move to West London if a regular starting spot is not on offer.
However, from a Queens Park Rangers point of view, the midfielder has shown great maturity in helping the League One side stay up and could be a potentially cheaper deal to conclude than other targets.
When a player has both age and experience on his side, a deal done is likely to be a masterstroke and with the potential signings of Dozzell and Rudoni on the horizon, QPR’s recruitment drive in the lower leagues could pay dividends for their upcoming second tier campaign.
