QPR are reportedly considering making an offer for attacking midfielder Ravel Morrison, who is currently with Italian club Lazio.
Despite being regarded as one of the most talented players of his generation, the career path of the former Manchester United trainee has been on a downhill ever since he gained his first contract at Old Trafford. A number of managers like Sam Allardyce and even Sir Alex Ferguson has given up hope on Morrison, but the England under 21 international has received a strange backing from former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp. Currently out of work, Redknapp is looking to return to management but not anytime soon.
He has not experienced Morrison as a person, but Redknapp believes that the 22-year-old can still become a great player that many expected him to become. He has urged to QPR to take a gamble on the player. Newly relegated QPR face an uphill battle in order to get back into the Premier League partly because of their immense financial troubles. It would not allow them to spend a considerable amount of fees on players, while also requiring them to sell existing stars like Charlie Austin. In such a scenario, QPR recruitment chief Les Ferdinand recently confirmed that Morrison remained a transfer target for the club.
“Anyone looking for a top player this summer should look at Ravel Morrison. Top talent, decent lad, not hard to manage. Can play for England.Ravel was good in training and had a great attitude when I worked with him.Glides when he has the ball, just hope he puts it all together,” said Redknapp. Morrison has already spent a lot of time with clubs like Birmingham City, Cardiff City, West Ham, and Manchester United. The 22-year-old has a long list of issues off the field and some on it as well.
