QPR target deal for Albion’s LuaLua

QPR are looking to sign Brighton winger Kazenga LuaLua on loan for the rest of the season, West London Sport report.

The Congolese 26-year-old has made only two league appearances for Championship leaders Albion this season and Rangers boss Ian Holloway is keen to take him to Loftus Road during this month’s transfer window.

LuaLua’s last league appearance for the Seagulls came against his former club Newcastle in August.

LuaLua was with the Magpies as a teenager and made eight league appearances – all as a substitute – during his time at St James’ Park.

He signed for Brighton in 2011 after impressing during three loan spells on the south coast.

He played 22 times for Chris Hughton’s side last season but suffered a knee injury earlier this term and has not been part of the first-team squad as the Seagulls have soared to the top of the Championship table.

Holloway is keen to bring in at least one winger during this month’s transfer window.

He has the likes of Yeni Ngbakoto, Pawel Wszolek and Olamide Shodipo at his disposal but wants more options and is also keen to recruit an experienced striker.

Meanwhile, a number of players have been told they can leave Rangers as part of Holloway’s attempt to revamp his squad.
