Steve McClaren’s appointment was a sign of ambition by the club, but the summer business needs to match that.
QPR finished the season in 16th place, but the season lacked excitement even though Ian Holloway achieved the aim of staying in the division, which was key due to the Financial Fair Play sanctions. They were always unlikely to challenge for the top six with the resources and squad available.
Bringing in McClaren is a statement of intent because he should be able to develop the young prospects in the squad through his coaching on the training pitch. His teams have been known for playing exciting, attacking football with his time at Derby being the peak. Therefore, this could turn out to be a good fit for both parties, but the transfer business this summer is key.
Here are three deals that need to happen…
