QPR interested in Fulham striker Smith

Fulham’s Matt Smith’s is among the strikers QPR are considering as possible signings ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Rangers are looking at potential options after failing to agree a fee with Rotherham for Danny Ward.

Smith, 27, has been unable to establish himself as a first-team regular since joining Fulham from Leeds United in 2014.

He has made 53 appearances for the Whites, 33 of them as a substitute, and has scored nine goals.

Smith scored 11 goals in 20 appearances during a loan spell at Bristol City the season before last.

Fulham are also looking to sign a forward before the deadline and might be willing to let Smith go if they do so.

Meanwhile, QPR are set to complete the signing of Luke Freeman from Bristol City and have received an approach from Oxford United for Nasser El Khayati.
