QPR are poised to make a second bid for Bristol City winger Luke Freeman.

A first approach was rejected, but these are five very good reasons why boss Ian Holloway plans to persist.

City have yet to offer a new deal to a player whose contract runs out in the summer

If Freeman is as prized as City believe, there would be a known contract extension on the table. GetWestLondon understands no such offer exists.

As it stands, the 24-year-old walks for free in the summer when he can take his pick of offers. It's also understood around £500,000 from Rs could tip the balance.

Freeman is not only a talented winger - he can play with both feet

He's not lightning fast, but he runs well with the ball at his feet.

There are not many who are as happy with both boots when it comes to wing play - it's either right or left. But the Londoner can switch feet effortlessly to bemuse hapless defenders.

He's bold attempting crosses and passes

Not afraid of failure, Freeman would rather gamble on a whipped in corner or clever pass than play the safe option that comes to nothing.

Sure, there are plenty that fail to beat the first defender at a corner or watch a pass get picked off. But when they work, they tend to have a devastating effect.

He scores spectacular goals

...but he could do with a few more.

Freeman has made 106 appearances and scored 10 for the Robins since moving to Ashton Gate from Stevenage in summer of 2014.

He can play just about anywhere

Rangers want him to fill the right-hand side while new face Kazenga LuaLua adds pace to the left.

But Freeman can play wing-back, central midfield, and he's not afraid to roll up his sleeves tracking back and helping out defenders.
