After finishing 18th in the Skybet Championship, Ian Holloway will be hoping to use the summer transfer window as a means of ensuring that QPR aren’t in a similar position next season.
Rather than looking abroad for summer recruits like Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink did, it is likely that Ian Holloway will look at the lower leagues as a potential avenue for recruitment.
One of the standout performers in League One this season has been Walsall’s advanced midfielder Erhun Oztumer who has been dubbed by some as the ‘Turkish Messi’.
After joining the Saddlers on a free transfer from Peterborough United, the 25-year-old midfielder has been a revelation for Jon Whitney’s side.
In his most prolific season to date by far, the midfielder impressed as he scored fifteen times and provided six assists for a mid-table Walsall side.
As well as the sheer quantity of goals and assists, the quality of the goals have been something to admire as Erhun Oztumer has scored a number of long-range strikes and also that he is an excellent set-piece taker.which have
The technical ability of the Turkish midfielder would no doubt be better suited for the Championship and with Walsall far from challenging for promotion, it is likely that the Saddlers will lose their prized asset in the summer.which have
With Oztumer likely to become available, a number of Championship sides including Queens Park Rangers need to be considering signing the midfielder in the summer.
As a versatile forward with the ability to play both in a deeper role or as a centre-forward, Oztumer could add the much needed flair and creativity which has sometimes been lacking from Queens Park Rangers’ performances since the departure of Tjaronn Chery.
