Crystal Palace happy to send Ebiowei to QPR but R’s may not give the go-ahead, here’s why

Crystal Palace are happy to send Malcolm Ebiowei on loan to QPR for the remainder of the season, but QPR’s priority right now is a striker signing, says West London Sport.

Ebiowei, 19, looks set to leave Crystal Palace on loan this month, and several Championship teams have been linked with his services including Blackburn Rovers, Hull City, Swansea City, and QPR.

But West London Sport have revealed that, whilst Crystal Palace ‘have indicated they would be happy’ to send Ebiowei on loan to QPR for the remainder of the 2022/23 season, QPR may instead choose to fill one of their remaining loan spaces with a striker this month.

As per West London Sport’s report, QPR have four players on loan as things stand and clubs in the Championship ‘can have a maximum of five loan players in a matchday squad’.

The R’s have scored 28 goals in 26 Championship outings this season and currently find themselves in 12th place of the table, after a 1-1 draw v 2nd place Sheffield United last time out.

Ebiowei to QPR

Ebiowei would certainly bolster QPR’s options on the right, and he’d also add a degree of energy to the flank and give players like Ilias Chair and Chris Willock some decent competition.

But QPR are more in need of a prolific no.9 and it would be a smart move for Critchley to leave this fifth loan spot open for a potential striker signing this month.

There’s plenty of options out there for QPR but the difficulty lies in finding one who can come in and immediately benefit the team. If QPR can find a goal-scorer then they should get their confidence back, and their push for a play-off spot should get back on track too.
