Queens Park Rangers are keen to re-sign Stefan Johansen this summer, according to reports from West London Sport.
The Hoops completed a deal to bring the midfielder to Loftus Road on loan from Fulham during the January transfer window, a move which certainly reaped its rewards in the second half of the season.
Since moving to the club the 30-year-old has been really impressive after making 21 appearances for Mark Warburton’s side.
West London Sport claim that QPR are keen to make a move for the Norwegian midfielder, but know that a deal could be hard to do.
Fulham have just been relegated from the Premier League and with a year remaining on his contract at Craven Cottage it remains to be seen what role Johansen could play under Scott Parker next term.
Any move that QPR make will be ‘less straightforward and will be much more protracted’, according to the report.
It’s claimed that Johansen is keen to stay in London, but it remains to be seen whether the midfielder will be lining up for the Hoops or the Cottagers on the opening day of the new season.
Quiz: Did QPR sign each of these 19 players on a free transfer or not?
This would be a fantastic signing if QPR could pull it off.
Stefan Johansen is a class act at Championship level and that was certainly proven during the second half of the campaign with some quality performances being put in.
Fulham may want to keep the player next term, but if opportunities are going to be limited then Mark Warburton may fancy his chances of bringing him back to Loftus Road.
The midfielder could be a key player for the Hoops next term and so it’ll be very interesting to see how this one plays out.
