As things stand, is this what QPR’s starting XI could look like ahead of next season?

QPR remain in a perilous position in the Championship table, after Saturday’s 3-1 defeat v Rotherham United.

Gareth Ainsworth has tasted defeat in his first two games in charge of the club. QPR now sit in 20th place of the table and just seven points above the drop zone, having lost their last five in the Championship. It’s a terrible run for the R’s, but thoughts may be turning towards the summer and preparations for next season – regardless of what division QPR will be playing in.

It promises to be a busy summer for QPR with a number of key players looking set to attract transfer interest, and with several others out of contract – there’s also a number of loan players set to return to their parent clubs in the summer.

With that in mind, here’s what QPR’s starting XI could look like ahead of next season…

One of the key areas to bolster in the summer will be at centre-back. Jake Clarke-Salter has struggled with injury so far this season and Leon Balogun is out of contract in the summer, leaving the out-of-form pairing of Rob Dickie and Jimmy Dunne.

Elsewhere, Tim Iroegbunam’s return to Aston Villa – along with Andre Dozzell’s underwhelming season – leaves something of a void in the middle of the park, whilst a new striker certainly seems like a priority with Jamal Lowe returning to Bournemouth, Chris Martin out of contract, and Lyndon Dykes having struggled this season.

There could yet be more gaps to fill with names like Seny Dieng and Ilias Chair bound to attract transfer interest, and potentially Sam Field who was subject of interest towards the end of the January transfer window.

It looks set to be a busy summer for QPR, but right now their focus is on Championship survival, with a game against Watford next on their agenda.
