There has been an update on QPR target Chuks Aneke, one regarding his contract situation.
“We talk about Ben Amos, Chuks Aneke and Adam Matthews, there have been contract negotiations going backwards and forwards. I know there has been a lot of interest in the three of them, because they are good players.
“We’ll have to wait and see. For example, I spoke to Ben and Chuks yesterday. They know I want them at the football club. The players have to make a decision and the agents make a decision for the finances as well.”
Back in March, former Charlton boss Lee Bowyer lavished praise on the forward. He told London News Online:
“He was immense up there again today. He’s unplayable, on his day he’s unplayable. The only disappointing thing, if I’m him, is that he didn’t score more.
“To have that hunger and that aggression in the box, that hunger to score every time you get a chance. He could have had four today if he really wanted it but he got one and it’s won us the game. I’m really pleased for him, I thought he’s done really well.”
QPR must act swiftly if they want to secure a deal for Aneke following this update from Adkins. The Charlton boss is seemingly pushing hard for Aneke to stay at Charlton and that could lead to QPR missing out on the chance to sign him on a free transfer.
QPR need to make Aneke an attractive offer to dissuade him from staying in League One with the Addicks, as a mouth-watering contract offer from a Championship club could sway his thinking.
Aneke could be an excellent addition to QPR’s squad after his sublime season for Charlton in League One. The forward scored 15 goals in the league, whilst also providing two assists, despite only starting 11 games for the club. He scored six goals in 11 starts and nine in his 27 appearances off the bench, showing that he can make an impact from the start or as a substitute as required – making him a dream for a manager.
The £5.4k-per-week beast could, therefore, be a solid signing for Mark Warburton’s side. He could add an extra goal threat to Warburton’s options at the top end of the pitch, whilst arriving for free if his contract expires at Charlton as scheduled at the end of the month.
QPR must act swiftly to make sure that he does not sign an extension with Charlton.
