Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion are eyeing a move for Queens Park Rangers midfielder Luke Freeman, according to a report from Teeside Live. 

It is understood that Boro boss Tony Pulis is on the look out for more creativity this summer and has identified Freeman as a potential target.

The 26 year old has been a star performer during his time at Loftus Road and his impressive form has caught the eye of the former Crystal Palace manager.

West Brom, now under the leadership of Darren Moore, are aiming for instant promotion back to the Premier League after suffering relegation last season.

The Baggies are on the lookout for players who are proven in the Football League in order to help mount a promotion challenge.

Freeman joined Rangers in the January transfer window of 2017 and has gone on to make 61 league appearances for the Londoners.

He scored 5 goals last campaign for the club, as well as registering 12 assists.

The attacking midfielder came through the ranks at the Arsenal academy, but failed to make a first team appearance during his time at the Emirates Stadium.

He firmly established himself during his time at Stevenage, before earning a move to Bristol City.

Freeman joined the Robins for a six figure fee in 2014 and made over 100 appearances for the club.

After signing a three and a half year deal for QPR in 2017, Steve McClaren is under no pressure to sell his star man.

However, it is thought that QPR rate Freeman at £3m, and a potential sale could help ease financial concerns around the club.

The attacker would be an astute acquisition for either side and could help both West Brom and Middlesbrough mount a promotion push.
