Queens Park Rangers have entered the race to sign Peterborough United striker Conor Washington, according to The Coventry Telegraph, and are understood to be the favourites to sign the player.

Washington, 23, has been the subject of a lot of speculation already this month, with Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers being the first clubs linked with the striker.  Reading have also been linked with Washington in a club-record move.

Queens Park Rangers have now entered the race to sign the player and are understood to be the favourites to secure his signature.

Washington has scored 15 goals in 30 appearances for Peterborough so far this season, including a goal in the team’s 2-0 win over Preston North End in the FA Cup yesterday.

It is believed that QPR director of football Les Ferdinand watched Washington in Peterborough’s 3-2 win at Sheffield United last Saturday, another game in which the striker scored.

Despite the interest from several Championship clubs, Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has made the point that the club are not looking to sell Washington this month despite the rumours surrounding the striker’s future.
