Queens Park Rangers are believed to be interested in taking Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on loan, according to The Croydon Advertiser. 

Bamford, 22, was on loan at Premier League side Crystal Palace but cut his spell short last week due to a lack of game time. Chelsea are keen to loan him out with apparent interest from a number of Premier League and Championship clubs.

QPR are the latest club to be credited with an interest, apparently wanting Bamford on loan until the end of the season.

The West Londoners are keen to add attacking prowess to their side, due to an over reliance on star man Charlie Austin, who himself is attracting Premier League interest.

Bamford also has a good record in the second tier, despite struggling in the top flight and failing to score a league goal for Palace.

He won Championship player of the year for his performances on loan at Middlesbrough last season and his addition would likely be a huge boost for struggling QPR.

However, they will face competition from a number of sides for his signature, including Swansea City, who are also apparently interested in Charlie Austin.

QPR have been struggling this season as they hunt an immediate return to the top flight and are yet to win a game under new boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. They currently lie 16th in The Championship, 11 points off the play-offs.
