QPR Facing Stiff Competition To Landed Belgian Star

QPR are reportedly interested in 23-year-old Lierse midfielder Joeri Dequevy, according to The Times.

Dequevy is a Belgian Under-21 international who previously played for KSV Roeselare and has attracted interest from Belgian giants Anderlecht and Standard Liege.

QPR have also been linked with Dequevy’s teammate Daylon Claasen.  Rangers lost star midfielder Alejandro Faurlin to injury earlier in the month and manager Mark Hughes may be looking to replace him for the remainder of the season with one of the Lierse midfielders.

Dequevy has played 20 times for Lierse without scoring whilst South African international Claasen has scored six times in 43 appearances. Although Faurlin has been ruled out for the entire season, Hungarian international Akos Buzsaky’s superb performance against Wigan in Rangers’ 3-1 victory on Saturday, including a stunning 30-yard free-kick, may cause Hughes to give him an extended run in the side.

Buzsaky starred for Rangers in the Championship following his transfer from Plymouth in 2007 but a succession of injuries left him well down the pecking order under Warnock.

With Moroccan play-maker Adel Taarabt also due to return from the African Cup of Nations sometime in the next few weeks, Hughes may have other priorities than the signing of a new midfield partner for Joey Barton although Rangers have also been linked with a loan move for Nancy’s Mali international Samba Diakite
