It dawned on the QPR managerial team that neither France nor Italy have the money and luxuries of youth set-ups like those of English clubs as GetWestLondon exclusively revealed.

And therefore, it’s no surprise Hoops have moved to make a reported offer for Metz winger Yeni Ngbakoto.

However, initial approaches have received a lukewarm reception from the club that hosted last night’s France versus Scotland final warm-up before Euros 2016.

Metz value their former France U18 player at north of £1.5million, and the 24-year-old still has two years to go on his current deal.

Rangers will go back for Ngbakoto and are also keen on Sehrou Guirassy, 20, but his club Lille want big money for the France Under-21 striker who impressed during the recent Toulon Tournament.

But plugging the tricky left-back spot looks just as difficult.

Damien McCrory could yet sign a new deal at Burton, head coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s former club, and Brentford have made it plain they intend to fight tooth-and-nail to hang on to coveted Jake Bidwell.
