Report: QPR consider moves for exciting French duo Guirassy and Ngbakoto

Inside Loftus Road

Queens Park Rangers have been linked with Sehrou Guirassy and Yeni Ngbakoto.

According to Get French Football News, Queens Park Rangers are considering raiding the French market with moves for Lille forward Sehoru Guirassy and Metz midfielder Yeni Mgbakoto.

The West London club had a mixed campaign last season as inconsistency halted any attempts of making the Championship’s playoffs come the end of the season.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink arrived from Burton Albion ahead of the January transfer window, yet the Dutchman seemed reluctant in making any major squad changes mid-season.

After spending six months at Loftus Road, the QPR boss has had a good look at his squad and now appears ready to make moves in the market in a bid to strengthen key areas.

As demonstrated in the report by Get French Football News, it seems the forward area is where Hasselbaink is looking to bulk up first and the two players in question give plenty of cause for optimism.

Guirassy, 20, is a highly-rated forward who spent the past six months on loan at second division side Auxerre, netting an impressive eight goals in 15 league appearances.

Lille are planning on making Eder their number one choice striker next season, suggesting that they could be tempted with a decent offer for Guirassy and QPR no doubt have money to spent this summer.

Mgbakoto is predominantly a midfield player, though he can feature further up the pitch in wider areas.

The 24-year-old has netted 40 goals for Metz during the past seven years at the club, and he was instrumental in helping the French side secure their return to Ligue 1 this past season.
