Transfer gossip: More speculation over Osayi-Samuel’s future

Some of the latest transfer speculation involving QPR….

QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel

West Ham are interested in QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel, it is claimed.

Rangers have long been open to offers for Osayi-Samuel, who is in the final months of his contract and has repeatedly stalled over signing a new deal.

And Teamtalk claim West Ham are among “a plethora of clubs” keen on him.

Several clubs have been linked with Osayi-Samuel in recent months but the only concrete offer came from Club Brugges.

West London Sport revealed earlier this year that the Belgian outfit had had an offer for him accepted and later also revealed he had turned down the move.

West London Sport also revealed that Crystal Palace were considering matching Club Brugges’ £4.7m bid.

The Eagles ultimately decided not to and there has so far been no sign of any firm interest from English clubs in Osayi-Samuel ahead of the January transfer window,

Nevertheless, Teamtalk claim West Ham and Palace both have him in their sights.

Watters touted for move

It has also been claimed that QPR are keen on Crawley striker Max Watters. 

Football Insider say Rangers have joined Swansea, Peterborough and MK Dons in a race to sign the youngster.

Watters has scored 13 goals in 14 league appearances for Crawley, prompting speculation that he could leave in January.

QPR have so far shown no interest in Watters, who is currently not among their transfer targets.

Rangers lack a finished article up front, with Lyndon Dykes, Macauley Bonne and teenager Charlie Kelman their options at the moment, so would consider signing an experienced striker on loan as a short-term measure.

Watters, 21, does not fit the bill.

Kehinde to the R’s?

QPR are interested in winger Tosin Kehinde, AllNigeriasoccer reports.

The 22-year-old, who was previously with Manchester United, currently plays for Randers.

The Danish top-flight clubs are said to be open to offers for him.

Kehinde’s representatives are keen to secure him a move to England and Rangers are among clubs to have been made aware of his potential availability.

QPR are currently looking at potential options should Osayi-Samuel leave next month.

O’Shaughnessy linked too

QPR have also been linked with Daniel O’Shaughnessy.

Football Insider have suggested Rangers are keen on the 26-year-old Finland defender.

He was previously at Brentford and is now with HJK Helsinki.

It was claimed that QPR are among a number of Championship clubs interested in O’Shaughnessy, who was at Brentford during Mark Warburton’s time as Bees boss.

Warburton has told West London Sport there is no prospect of him signing O’Shaughnessy.

“There’s absolutely no truth in that whatsoever,” said the Rangers manager.

“Daniel’s a lovely lad and playing well but has never been on our list.

“I’ve no idea where these stories come from.

“I’ve been linked with players I’ve never heard of before. I’d love to know where they emanate from.

“I’ve been linked with so many strikers and defenders and it’s ludicrous.

“I read these stories in utter disbelief sometimes.”
