Spanish defender Jordi Amat has emerged as a potential target for Championship club Queens Park Rangers, according to breaking reports.
With defensive duo Ashley Williams and Federico Fernandez in such fine form, game time for the 23-year-old is going to be extremely hard to come by.

Despite Queens Park Rangers’ reported interest, Amat’s wage demands could be a potential stumbling block. After relegation from the top flight last term, Rangers are on a strict budget. Former Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker left Loftus Road for Southampton during the summer, and the R’s are eager to replace the centre-back.
Due to injury and the form of Swansea’s other central-defenders, Jordi Amat has endured a stop-start career at the Liberty Stadium. The Spaniard only featured 12 times for Garry Monk’s side last season, with his last appearance coming in Swansea’s 3-2 win against Newcastle United in late April.
Although QPR may not be able to meet Amat’s demands, the defender may still want to leave the Liberty to find regular first-team football elsewhere.
After two excellent performances at the start of the season, Swansea have taken four points from their first two games. Monk’s side face a trip to struggling Sunderland on Saturday, where they will no doubt be looking to take all three points.
