Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing QPR playmaker Luke Freeman in the summer if the club gain promotion from the Championship – and Whites fans have reacted excitedly on Twitter.
TalkSPORT claimed in an exclusive that the 26-year-old is a target for Marcelo Bielsa’s side. This comes after Freeman scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Leeds against QPR at the end of February.
In what was expected to be a comfortable run out for Leeds at Loftus Road, Freeman flicked an effort past Kiko Casilla. It has seemingly left Bielsa rather impressed and he could be the newest face through the door.
Freeman has certainly been in excellent form this season. With QPR struggling in the bottom third of the Championship, former Arsenal midfielder Freeman has still had a hand in 15 goals.
Scoring nine, with his last coming against Leeds, Freeman has also created six more. He has become a fan favourite at Loftus Road, since joining the club for just £350,000 (Gazette Live) in January 2017.
It is believed that Leeds scouts had been watching Freeman before his goal against the Whites. Leeds fans reacted on Twitter to the news that Freeman is a target for the automatic promotion chasers.
True, if we go up Freeman would be an exciting buy. Not sure on the other guy

Freeman looked good against us!

Looked a quality player but we need to cut our cloth accordingly if we reach the PL.

First game back from injury when he played us and technically one of the best performances I’ve seen from an opposing player all year. He ran us ragged and clearly has bags of talent.

Perfect replacement for Saiz. Ian Holloway, who took him to QPR was saying what a talent LF was during an interview when he was injured. Said Freeman was technically superb and would go right to the top. He certainly proved his quality against us.
