According to a unnamed club source speaking to The Athletic, the failure to cash in on high-value assets last summer is seen as a major mistake by those working within QPR.
The likes of Ilias Chair and Chris Willock were both cited as potential assets that could have been sold to raise transfer funds to improve the overall first team squad.
Chair’s international status as a Morocco first team member was singled out as something that has raised his transfer value, making it worthwhile to cash in for the club.
That his style of play also doesn’t quite work with a team struggling for results like Ainsworth’s has also been mentioned as one reason why cashing in made sense last summer.
The failure of the academy system to produce stars has also been mentioned as a big issue that QPR needs to resolve soon.
Could QPR earn a major January transfer windfall?
The London club could be due a major windfall in January if reports of Manchester City’s interest in Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze comes to fruition.
QPR are due 20 per cent of any sale of the forward, which could amount to an eight-figure sum for the Loftus Road club.

Regardless, his arrival could alleviate some of the financial fair play issues currently plaguing the club.
