QPR signed off for the international break by extending their unbeaten run to four games with a very good point at high-flying Fulham last time out.
Ian Holloway’s side have been inconsistent at times this season but have shown in the past few weeks that they are a very talented squad who can compete with anyone in the Championship on their day.
Prior to the comeback draw at Craven Cottage, the R’s went to Aston Villa and won 3-1, just days after Steve Bruce’s side had thrashed leaders Wolves.
Whilst the whole team, and Holloway, deserve credit for these results, there’s no doubt that midfielder Massimo Luongo has been very influential on the pitch. The Australian international even scored his fifth of the season at Fulham.
After that, it got us thinking about how much he would be worth, and here at FLW we went for £5.5m.
The former Swindon man has developed into a fine all-round player, capable of keeping the ball with a good passing range, whilst also willing to get stuck in.
He is also a leader for QPR both in terms of talking to teammates and in the way he demands the ball and tries to set the tempo for the side alongside Luke Freeman in the middle.
As well as that, at 25-years old Luongo has a lot of time to improve and work on aspects of his game that could ensure he becomes a top-flight midfielder.
Given their financial situation, QPR may find it hard to resist offers for their key men in the summer and Luongo is certainly one of those.
