Queens Park Rangers have made a £3m bid for Peterborough United striker Conor Washington, according to the Daily Mail.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side need to replace top scorer Charlie Austin, having sold the 10-goal striker to Premier League side Southampton for a fee believed to be in the region of £4m at the weekend.
The Hoops’ director of Football, Les Ferdinand, was recently spotted watching the frontman in Peterborough’s 3-2 win over Sheffield United, in which Washington scored the opening goal.
Washington is Peterborough’s leading scorer so far this season, having netted 15 goals in 31 appearances for the club, including 10 in the league.
The striker joined the League One club from Newport County in 2014 for a fee in the region of £500,000 after helping the Welsh team win promotion to the Football League in the 2012-13 campaign.
