Former Wycombe Wanderers Striker On The Move

Former Wycombe striker Uche Ikpeazu has now left Turkish side Konyaspor and is a free agent after only joining the club last summer, as reported by journalist Darren Witcoop via a post on X.

Ikpeazu has enjoyed a vast career throughout the EFL and Scotland, with Blackpool, Port Vale, Cambridge United and Hearts amongst his former clubs. However, the forward found his most impressive form with Wycombe Wanderers in the 2020-21 season where the forward scored six goals as the Buckinghamshire club were relegated from the second tier.

This form earned the target man a move to Middlesbrough where the forward never quite found his feet, being loaned out to Cardiff City, before joining Turkish side Konyaspor on a free transfer only one year later.

It remains to be seen whether there is any interest in the 28 year old. But, the forward will be very keen to earn regular game time after hitting a stumbling block in his career over the last two years.

The case may be that the forward would be open for a move to Queens Park Rangers to reunite with former Wycombe manager, Gareth Ainsworth who found Ikpeazu’s best form. However, there has not been any reports of the West London club holding any interest in the striker to date.

What has been said?

Journalist Darren Witcoop stated on X:

“Uche Ikpeazu is now a free agent after leaving Turkish club Konyaspor.”

“Obvious links with QPR boss Gareth Ainsworth given his Wycombe connections but nothing in it at moment.”

Writer’s View

Ikpeazu would be a great pick up for any side in League One and I also believe a reconcile with his former boss at QPR would be a great move for both player and club as the player is looking to reignite his career following a difficult two years.

In QPR’s current circumstances, the player would be a good pick-up while the club are coping with potential departures and questions over the club’s stability. Ikpeazu would suit the style Ainsworth is looking to implement perfectly so therefore I can see potential for this move to materialise despite no actual interest at this point.
