Queens Park Rangers could be set to be banned from signing some new players in the January transfer window, but are eyeing up a move for former France youth international Christophe Rodrigues Silva, according to France Football.

The potential transfer embargo could mean that Steve McClaren will have to move on some of his current players to make way for the arrival of French attacker Christophe Rodrigues Silva.

The 22-year-old is currently playing for L’Entente Sannois Saint-Gratien – who are playing their football in the Championnat National, the third tier of French football. He represented the France U19 side on two occasions in 2014, when he was playing in the youth squad at French side RC Lens.

France Football say that QPR are a fan of the attacker’s “fast and direct play”, and could make a move for him when the January transfer window opens. His contract at L’Entente Sannois Saint-Gratien comes to an end at the end of the 2018/19 Championnat National season, and QPR could look to capitalise on that to bring him over to Loftus Road from France.

The attacker would add more firepower to Steve McClaren’s ranks, providing some support for loaned in strikers Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells – who are spending the season at Loftus Road from Brighton and Hove Albion and Burnley respectively.
