Queens Park Rangers have been moving to sign Thibaud Verlinden from Beerschot V.A. ‘in recent weeks’, with a deal very much possible.

That’s according to Gazet van Antwerpen, who report that the 24-year-old will be allowed to depart this summer for the right price.

The newspaper reports that while Verlinden played an important role in his side’s promotion this season, bagging five goals and ten assists in 28 games in the league, the reality is that he is not considered unsellable.

In fact, the Belgian side would be happy to let him go if anyone is willing to offer €500,000 and QPR are one of the sides to have already moved.

Gazet report that they and a number of other Championship sides have been ‘angling for the services’ of the winger in recent weeks.

They face competition from Union SG, and they might have even put a concrete offer on the table, although that has seemingly not been confirmed as yet. Either way, QPR may want to move quickly lest they miss out.

The player himself may need convincing too as he’s long made it clear he wants to play in the top flight with Beerschot sooner rather than later.

That would suggest he’s not that keen on a departure this summer, although if his club are happy to move him on then it seems he may not have much of a choice.
