QPR have handed trials to Arsenal defender Chiori Johnson and Leyton Orient winger Henry Ochieng, according to GetWestLondon.

Both of the youngsters will feature for QPR’s Under-23’s fixture against Bristol City today in a bid to impress those watching them.

Choiri Johnson is on the books at Premier League giants Arsenal but could leave them at the end of the season. He has recently been on loan at League One Blackburn Rovers and is weighing up his options for his future.

The 20-year-old can play as either a centre-back or a full-back. He joined Arsenal at the age of eight and signed his first professional contract in 2015. Although it appears his future will not be with the Gunners, he would be a good long-term signing for QPR.

Henry Ochieng is the other trialist playing for the Hoops. The 19-year-old winger plays for National League side Leyton Orient and has played 6 times for them this season. He was played for West Ham United as a youngster but was released in 2015 and joined their fellow London side Orient.

Ochieng played last week for QPR’s Under-23’s and they are believed to be considering offering him a deal. The Hoops are starting to plan for the long-term with older players like James Perch and Jamie Mackie leaving in the summer and youngsters like Ryan Manning and Ebere Eze getting their chance to flourish in the first-team.
