Celtic make first contact over potential deal for QPR man

QPR centre-back Jake Clarke-Salter is a wanted man and Football Scotland reports Celtic have made tentative contact over a possible deal.

Earlier this week, QPR star Clarke-Salter was connected to a number of teams. According to The Sun, his position has been watched by Wolves, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Ipswich Town, and Celtic.

At Loftus Road, the 26-year-old has had a great season and developed a solid rapport with the seasoned Steve Cook. However, given his performances, he might be valued higher than the Rs.

Later on, it will be interesting to see if the connections yield any more tangible results, although since the first reports, further details about Celtic’s interest have surfaced.

According to Football Scotland, the Scottish Premiership team has established “tentative contact” in an attempt to work out a deal before the summer transfer window. Given that his contract expires in 2026, the QPR star would need to pay a transfer fee.

Looking into a deal

Clubs can surely benefit from beginning to make overtures to possible summer targets. If QPR can maintain their Championship position, they might consider doing the same sooner rather than later.

Regardless of whether they can avoid relegation or not, the West London team will be well aware that some of their key players may attract interest this summer.

The fact that Clarke-Salter is one of Marti Cifuentes’ key players means that interest is not surprising. It would be interesting to see if any of the other fans are inspired to step up their pursuit in light of these recent developments, since Celtic are already seeking to intensify their efforts.

However, the player will continue to give his whole attention to topics pertaining to the field. With six games remaining, QPR is six points above of the bottom three in the Championship table, sitting in 16th place.
