Queens Park Rangers must swap Angel Rangel for Joel Ward

Queens Park Rangers must swap Angel Rangel for Joel Ward

Queens Park Rangers have certainly improved in recent times as they seem to be heading in the right direction under Steve McClaren. 

The London club started the season off in a very disappointing manner, but they’re beginning to build up ahead of steam and could start climbing up the table.

One struggle for QPR has been getting the best out of a player that signed this summer, Angel Rangel.

Indeed, the experienced defender has looked off the pace at times as he comes towards the end of his footballing career. The 35-year-old needs to be replaced at some point in the near future to help strengthen the defensive line by providing more stability.

With that in mind, the Hoops should think about upgrading by bringing in this star…

Joel Ward

The defender, who is valued at £4.5 million (by Transfermarkt), hasn’t been able to nail down a permanent place in Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace side this season as a loan move away seems suitable.

Indeed, the right-back has been a consistent performer for the Eagles over the years, but due to Aaron Wan Bissaka’s rise to stardom, the 28-year-old has stagnated behind the scenes.

So, the Hoops should look to Joel Ward as a replacement for Angel Rangel as he can provide the pace and strength that the former Swansea City man has been lacking at times.
