Queens Park Rangers reportedly trying to sign Tim Ream from Bolton

Tim Ream could be on the move. Queens Park Rangers have made a £1 million bid for the United States defender, putting the 27-year-old's future in question, according to ESPNFC. Now Bolton have to sort out their finances and see what they can do to keep Ream.

Bolton reportedly want to keep Ream, who has been named the club's Player of the Year the last two years. He just signed a new three-year deal with the club earlier in the year too. But Bolton aren't flush with cash and have to consider a seven figure bid.

QPR desperately need help at the back. Steven Caulker, Rio Ferdinand and Richard Dunne are all gone, leaving them thin at the back and Ream has proven himself to be a very good Championship player. If Ream made the move, he probably wouldn't have much issue getting playing time, but that's not really an upgrade seeing as he's a regular for Bolton. It's also not a jump in league, as QPR are back in the Championship this year. The only way a move makes sense is if Bolton need the money and QPR are offering a pay raise, which isn't just possible, it's likely.
