QPR summer target out to impress for Iceland against Holland

QPR 1

Ajax star and Iceland international Kolbeinn Sigþórsson was linked with a move to the Premier League to Queens Park Rangers throughout the summer.

If QPR do end up looking back on the summer just gone with any sense of regret, it should not be for allowing star man Loic Remy to move to Chelsea but rather for failing to bring in the PLAYER once earmarked to lead the line for the Rs in the top-flight - Kolbeinn Sigþórsson.

Rumoured to be heading to the Premier League outfit for much of the previous few months, the Rs started the summer being linked with a move for the 24-year-old and even had a bid accepted by Ajax for the Iceland international, only for the deal to collapse at the last minute.

A couple of months on and the club continues to be linked with a bid for the player, with their interest seemingly peaked by his recent star turns at international level.

Something of a bit-part player for the Eredivisie champions, Sigþórsson scored 12 goals in 42 appearances for the club last term, though he was rarely deployed as the Amsterdam giants’ main striker.

But it’s an altogether different story at international level, with a return of 16 goals in 25 games that has helped catapult Iceland from Euro 2016 qualifying also-rans to one of the favourites for qualification from their group.

He was among the scorers in Iceland’s sensational 3-0 win over Turkey and Rangers could well return to the 24-year-old come January with the Londoners currently struggling in front of goal.

The Loftus Road side have so far failed to find the net in four of their first eight Premier League games and sit bottom of the table in the Premier League.

Charlie Austin is the only Rs striker to find the net in the top-flight so far this term, with Bobby Zamora and Eduardo Vargas both yet to get off the mark.

Take a look at some of his best moment for Ajax so far - should QPR break the bank for the forward?
