With many football clubs jetting off to warmer climates for a much-needed session in the sun, you'd hope that each Championship club would be keeping a close eye on the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea.
Every year the challenge of identifying untapped talent proves harder and harder, with clubs improving each season in their ability and resource to go and check out talent both in britain and further afield.
The issue facing QPR is evident, with a lack of funds available it may be a case of taking a gamble on some of the world's hottest prospects, and what better place to start than the Under-20s World Cup.
A quick look at the England squad provides a list of players who are currently unrecognisable for most football fans, but the fact of the matter is that these players are on track to be household names in the next 12 months if they continue to progress at this rate.
The majority are registered with top teams in the Premier League and the Championship, making a permanent move unlikely to have any legs, but these players will be looking for a platform to showcase their talents and where better to do that than Loftus Road?
With England currently looking likely to qualify for the second round, which England stars could QPR be looking to for next season?
The Chelsea forward/ wide-man is out of contract this summer but has been touted for big things in the game. Solanke spent the season on loan at Chelsea's feeder club Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands where he scored seven goals in 25 appearances. A regular in the England youth set-up, but also eligible for Nigeria at senior level, QPR could be an ideal platform for the 19 year old to show what he is capable of, whether he joins on a permanent deal or on loan after securing a new club.
The versatile Arsenal player could be an excellent option for QPR. The 19-year-old spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Ipswich Town making 30 appearances for the Tractor Boys before returning to Arsenal. The versatile midfielder made his first-team breakthrough at Arsenal last summer but will be searching for regular first team football in the new season, and the option to play regularly for a fellow London side could be an appealing option.
An outstanding talent who has made 8 appearances for Everton since signing from Charlton Athletic in January. The 19-year-old was the only shining light for the Addicks as they plummetted out of the Championship, before securing his move to the Toffees after a strong start to life in League One. The Wandsworth-born youngster may find first-team opportunities harder to come by in the new season with Ronald Koeman signalling his intent to add more attacking talent to his squad. The opportunity to move back to London short-term while being the main-man at a club like QPR could be a real possibility.
