QPR, Swansea City keen on out of favour Championship striker

QPR and Swansea City are among those interested in Bristol City striker Nahki Wells, a report from Bristol Live has said.

QPR and Swansea City have both enjoyed fruitful starts to their respective summer windows. Managers Michael Beale and Russell Martin are both keen to make their mark on their squads this summer before embarking on the new campaign.

Jake Clarke-Salter and Kenneth Paal have both made their way to West London, while Ola Wasiri Williams, Nathan Wood, Harry Darling and Matthew Sorinola have all headed to South Wales.

Now, it has been claimed both clubs are after Bristol City man Wells.

Bristol Live‘s report states that QPR and Swansea City are alongside Preston North End in eyeing a cheap move for the Bermudan. He still has a year remaining on his deal at Ashton Gate, but all three clubs are hoping to strike a deal to sign him for nothing.

Could a move away be best?

25 of Wells’ 32 Championship appearances last season came as a substitute. Overall, he has made 100 appearances for the Robins since joining two-and-a-half years ago, netting 19 goals and providing seven assists in the process.

A return to familiar surroundings with QPR would certainly catch the eye this summer. He previously starred on loan at Loftus Road, managing 24 goals and laying on seven assists in a season-and-a-half on loan with the club.

That being said, a move to the Stadium could be a well-suited one. There would be competition for a starting spot with Joel Piroe and Michael Obafemi but location-wise, it wouldn’t be a long journey from Bristol to Swansea.

With neither club looking to pay a fee for Wells, it remains to be seen if anyone can strike a deal this summer.
