QPR target ex-Premier League striker

Queen’s Park Rangers are targeting a move for former Fulham striker Hugo Rodallega, according to the Daily Mail.

The 31-year-old is currently playing for Turkish Super Lig side Akhisar Belediyespor after making his move from Fulham in 2015. The striker has been in impressive form and has bagged 23 goals in 50 games since making his move from England. He scored goals against Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce as well as firing in a hat-trick against Besiktas.

Rodellega would bring a wealth of Premier League experience if he was to join QPR. The Colombia international has made over 150 English top-flight appearances during his five seasons in the Premier League at Wigan Athletic and Fulham.

With his contract set to run out in the summer, Akhisar are welcome to a January move for the forward. He moved to Wigan for £4.5 million where he became their all-time Premier League top goalscorer but may not command a fee that high this month with his value depreciating by the day as his contract comes to an end.

QPR are currently in 17th spot in the Championship and are enduring a disappointing season. The vastly-travelled striker could bring much-needed experience to Loftus Road, where a goalscorer is in high demand. Ian Holloway’s side have scored just 24 goals this term, less than a goal a game, which is the second worst record in the division. Rodellega has scored over 100 goals in his career, although would contribute just as highly to the wage bill as he would do the goal tally.
