Queens Park Rangers are closing in on a deal to take West Ham attacker Jordan Hugill on loan for the 2019/20 season, according to Football Insider.
The reliable football outlet claim that the London club are in advanced talks with the Hammers over borrowing the 27-year-old forward with QPR keen to bolster their front line.
Football Insider report that QPR believe Hugill is someone who can add goals to their side next season.
Hugill has only featured three times for the Hammers, with his appearances totalling 19 minutes (Source: Transfermarkt), so it’s no surprise he is edging closer to a move away. However, what is a bit of turn up for the books, is that QPR are close to borrowing Hugill’s services rather than signing him on a permanent basis. If Hugill is set for another loan spell away from the London Stadium, then you feel it’s because the Hammers couldn’t find anyone to take the forward on a permanent basis, as clearly he has no future at the club based on how little he has been used. Hugill had a disappointing loan spell at Middlesbrough last season, he managed only seven goals in 41 outings and ended his spell with them as not a guaranteed starter. The attacker averaged a goal every 293 minutes in his latest campaign, as per the BBC, with under half his attempted shots hitting the target, and you feel he will have to do better at QPR, if a move goes through, in order for the Hammers to able to successfully sell him next summer.
