Queens Park Rangers have expressed interest in acquiring an offensive player from the Premier League, but they are reportedly facing competition from Bristol City, their Championship counterparts. Marti Cifuentes’ team has had a successful week, narrowing the gap to safety by three points after securing back-to-back victories against Stoke City and Preston North End, a notable achievement for the season.

The recent win against Preston North End, particularly impressive against a team vying for promotion, saw Paul Smyth and Chris Willock scoring two second-half goals, maintaining pressure on teams positioned higher in the standings. While QPR has started finding the back of the net more frequently, tallying six goals in their last two matches, they still share the second-worst offensive record in the division, with 17 goals in 19 games.

In an effort to address their scoring challenges, Cifuentes is reportedly eyeing Fulham’s Rodrigo Muniz as a potential addition in January. Muniz, who joined Fulham from Flamengo in 2021 for £6.8 million, has struggled to make an impact at Craven Cottage and spent the previous season on loan at Middlesbrough.

Despite Muniz’s limited success at Middlesbrough, where he scored two goals in 17 appearances during the playoffs, both QPR and Bristol City are said to be interested in securing his services. Fulham is expected to make a decision on Muniz’s future in the coming weeks. However, given QPR’s potential financial constraints compared to Bristol City, who claim to have a “top-ten budget” in the league, it may be challenging for QPR to outbid their rivals for the Brazilian striker.
