Report: Lille want Queens Park Rangers defender Armand Traore

Armand Traore has not made a single appearance for Queens Park Rangers this season.

According to a report in French newspaper L'Equipe, Queens Park Rangers defender Armand Traore is a transfer target for Lille.

Traore has struggled for game time at QPR this season, and he has fallen completely out of favour under Chris Ramsey.

Lille are now preparing a January move for the 26-year-old, as they believe he will be keen to move on from Loftus Road.

Traore has been with QPR since 2011, but he has never managed to fully secure his position as the side's left-back.

Despite boasting the physical attributes to be a star in the Championship, Ramsey has preferred to select more solid defensive options, and it seems that his time in London is coming to an end.

Traore played 17 times for the R's in the Premier League last season, but he has not made one appearance this term, and it is unlikely that QPR would stand in his way if an offer came in.

Lille are currently in 13th place in Ligue 1, having made a rather indifferent start to their season.
