Stats

According to Transfermarkt.co.uk, Toney scored 24 goals in League One in 2019-20 and found the net 16 times in the league in 2018-19.

Good signing for QPR?

Toney is one of the best strikers in the lower leagues in England, and he would be a very good signing for QPR in the summer transfer window.

The former Newcastle man is a proven goalscorer, and he is ready to take the next step in his career and move to a club in the Championship.

QPR are an established club in the Championship, and a goalscorer like Toney would enhance their chances of finishing in the playoffs.
