Round-up: QPR players in line for contract offers as Homer returns

QPR: Jordan Hugill

QPR want Jordan Hugill back next season.

Striker Hugill scored 15 goals during his year on loan at Loftus Road from West Ham.

And Rangers would like him to be included in any deal with the Hammers for Ebere Eze.

The east London club are interested in Eze as well as Brentford winger Said Benrahma.

QPR, who believe Eze is worth at least £20m, are looking to sign at least a couple of forwards this summer.

They would like to sign Hugill either on loan or a permanent deal and believe their best chance might be if West Ham make a move for Eze, who is also wanted by Crystal Palace.

They dominated the Championship play-off semi-final first leg in Wales, where Josh Onomah’s superb individual goal and Neeskens Kebano’s injury-time free-kick put them in control of the tie.

“It will be another huge battle on Thursday. This is only halfway through but we’ll stand up to the challenge,” Parker declared.
