Loftus Road side keen on French international.
Harry Redknapp wants to make France striker Loic Remy his first signing at QPR. The former Spurs boss tried to take the Marseille forward to White Hart Lane last season.
Now, after admitting he needs more striking options at the Premier League’s bottom club, he is ready to spend £8m on the goalscorer to help save Rangers from relegation.
Remy is under contract until 2015 but his agent Bruno Satin said last week: “If they [Olympique Marseille] were to get an offer of £10million, the club would let him leave.”

Though QPR have struggled in defence this season Harry Redknapp is right to place a striker target at the head of his January wish-list.
The West London club have managed just ten goals in 13 Premier League matches this season and that’s despite the fact that the Loftus Road squad has more than a few striking options available in their squad. Harry Redknapp will hope that the allure of a move to the Premier League appeals to the 25 year old French international.
Remy has finished as Marseille’s top scorer for each of the past two seasons but has found first team opportunities few and far between under new boss Elie Baup.
The former Nice man netted last night as Marseille fell to a 4-1 home defeat to Ligue 1 leaders Lyon.
