When Burnley striker Nakhi Wells joined QPR on loan towards the end of August, he was joining a club in turmoil.
Almost one month to the day after he joined, and the club are on a five match unbeaten streak and climbing up the Championship table. They were rooted firmly at the bottom when he joined, without a single point, now they are 16th.
Alongside Brighton loan Tomer Hemed, the two strikers have turned QPR’s season around and manager Steve McClaren must be very happy. To be given the news today that Wells in considering making his move permanent must have made him over the moon.
But with this news, the club should not hesitate in securing this deal. As soon as January comes, this should be one of the club’s main priorities. If they can secure his signature, and possibly Hemed’s, the team are shaping up to be quite threatening. Alongside hot prospect Eberechi Eze, the possibilities are endless for QPR’s attack.
Despite the dire start by The Hoops, their turnaround means that fans can expect big things from their club this season, and more to come if they are able to get Wells (valued at £4.05m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) to stay at Loftus Road.
Bermuda international Wells struggled for game time in his first season with Premier League outfit Burnley, and wisely fashioned a move to the London club.
QPR host Norwich on Saturday, hoping to extend their unbeaten run and improve their position in the table. The Canaries are one point ahead of them going into Saturday’s clash, meaning a victory to The Rs would see them leapfrog their opponents.Like what the TT have on offer?
