Sean Adarkwa could swap Premier League high-flyers West Ham United for London neighbours Queens Park Rangers, as reported by West London Sport.
QPR have been going about their business quietly of late, hoovering up talented youngsters from their capital city rivals.
The likes of Charlie Owens, Luke Amos and Dylan Duncan all moved to Loftus Road from Tottenham Hotspur and, if reports are to be believed, 20-year-old Adarkwa could soon be swapping claret and blue for hoops.
West London Sport claims the versatile forward is set to become a free agent this summer and QPR are about to swoop, with West Ham yet to offer Adarkwa a new deal.
A natural left-winger who has played more frequently as a centre-forward of late, Adarkwa has spent the best part of a decade at West Ham, becoming a regular fixture for Dmitri Halajko’s U23 side this season.
But it looks increasingly likely that Adarkwa will follow the likes of Dan Kemp, Josh Cullen and Benicio Boaitey out of the door sooner rather than later.
QPR boss Mark Warburton has a superb track record when it comes to developing promising young talent too – see the huge improvements made by Ebere Eze and Ilias Chair at Loftus Road since the start of 2019/20.
Adarkwa, then, could fit in rather nicely.
“Thierry Henry was my idol growing up,” Adarkwa told West Ham’s website.
“Since he finished playing, I’ve gone back and watched all his clips on YouTube. My brother was a big fan of his as well – he was just a natural goalscorer who’d do anything to put the ball in the net.”
