Report: Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Rangers want Queens Park Rangers midfielder Massimo Luongo

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United boss Steve Evans, Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka and Rangers gaffer Mark Warburton all reportedly want to add Queens Park Rangers midfielder Massimo Luongo to their squads.

According to a report from Australian news site SBS, Queens Park Rangers midfielder Massimo Luongo is a transfer target for Leeds United and Rangers.

Luongo only moved to Loftus Road from Swindon Town in the summer transfer window, but he has fallen out of favour since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink took charge.

The Australian international has played just twice since October, with other players jumping ahead of him in the pecking order.

Luongo is yet to score in his 16 appearances for QPR, and his transition to Championship football has been a tough one.

Leeds and Rangers both believe that he could enhance the quality of their squads, though.

Leeds already have a wealth of options in central midfield, but Luongo would offer them a more creative outlet than many of their other players.

Rangers, meanwhile, have been eager to sign players from the Football League since Mark Warburton took charge, and the Scottish Championship side believe the 23-year-old would thrive at Ibrox.

If Leeds or Rangers to make a bid for Luongo in January, they will face competition however, as Middlesbrough are also credited with an interest.
