Loftus Road side keen on veteran forward.
TransferMarketWeb claim that QPR have entered the race to lure Nicolas Anelka into a Premier League return.
The French veteran moved to Shanghai Shenhua in January and has not enjoyed a great deal of success and the 33 year old may feel he can still cut it in the English top tier.
The 33 year old spent 18 successful months at Bolton, during which time he got his Premier League career back on track after a decent stint in Turkey with Fenerbahce.
During his time at the Reebok Stadium the Frenchman netted 23 goals in 61 appearances before he completed a £15m move to Chelsea.
Anelka spent four years at Stamford Bridge where he managed 59 goals from 185 appearances before he left to join Shanghai Shenhua but now seemingly open to a return from China a move to West Ham or QPR may well tempt the well traveled forward.
Mark Hughes could well do with an experienced forward to help beef up an attack that has managed just eight goals in 11 Premier League matches and are still looking for their first win of the season.
