QPR set sights on luring Sam Allardyce to Loftus Roadby Jack Kitson / 02 April 2015, 09:58Tweet
QPR are believed to be keen in luring Sam Allardyce over to Loftus Road this summer. According to The Daily Mirror the R's have set their sights on the 60-year-old should he, as many expect, leave West Ham at the end of the season.
Allardyce, who has been in charge at Upton Park since 2011, is out of contract at the end of the current campaign. The Hammers owners are refusing to discuss his future until then, but with the club's form faltering alarmingly in 2015, rumours are rife that the former Bolton boss will depart in the summer. Should this be the case, Big Sam will be no short of offers for an instant return to the dugout, with Sunderland also reportedly keen to snap him up as their new permanent manager.
The Next QPR Manager Odds aren't currently available, but current boss Chris Ramsey will put himself in a decent position in the market, should he save the Hoops from the dreaded drop. Since replacing Harry Redknapp in the Loftus Road hot seat the 52-year-old has suffered six defeats in seven matches, however he appears to have the support of both the club and players...for now. Ramsey's future at the West London outfit will depend entirely on whether he can save the club from relegation, with the R's four points adrift of safety with eight matches remaining.
While Allardyce is catching the eye of owner Tony Fernandes and co, Brentford boss Mark Warburton has also been linked with the post. Back in February the Bees revealed that their talented gaffer will surprisingly depart Griffin Park at the end of the summer, even if he incredibly leads the London outfit up to the Premier League.
