The 26-year-old's possible transfer to Elland Road has been received positively by Whites supporters on social media, with the $7 million-rated player also linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.
If Forshaw is going, then great replacement, possibly an upgrade really— Richard Miles (@RicardoMiles) June 27, 2019
Ah right fair play, box to box would be a good addition for us especially if Forshaw leaves. But it all depends on whether this is purely paper talk or if you are willing to let him go.— Shaun (@LUFC19921) June 27, 2019
Let’s start the Australian connection again it’s worked before.— Furious.Soul (@Furious_Sim) June 27, 2019
He made the most tackles in the league (again), BUT he isn’t like Phillips. He’s a ball carrier & absolutely superb at it, Ball retention is class. Probs more box to box.— Ash 🇵🇱. (@QPR_Ash) June 27, 2019
The Socceroo midfielder's club has publicly admitted the player is for sale with their current financial position and that his career could 'kick on' with a fresh start elsewhere.
"[Luongo's] relatively young and has the opportunity to push on," QPR director of football Les Ferdinand told The World Game.
"He has a year left with us but if he does go this (northern) summer he might be able to kick on a little bit more (elsewhere).
"There has been a bit of interest for Mass. We are a club that if the right offer comes in for one of our players - especially with the Financial Fair Play situation - we have to look at everything."
QPR are looking to get themselves out of tight financial situation after having been found to have breached Financial Fair Play during their promotion season to the Premier League in 2014 - with a $76m settlement agreed with the English Football League as punishment.
