Loftus Road boss lines up Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane swoops.
CalcioMercato believes that newly installed QPR boss Harry Redknapp is showing interest in five talents who he feels can help to steer his West London side off the bottom of the Premier League table.
The former White Hart Lane boss is reportedly interested in both Scott Parker and Michael Dawson, two players he knows all too well from his time in charge of the North London club.
Midfielder Parker is still out with an Achilles injury that has left him out for the entire season and perhaps Andre Villas-Boas would consider selling the battling midfielder given the form shown by enforcer Sandro. It is however less likely the Portuguese boss would consider selling Dawson. The centre-back was strongly linked with a move to QPR over the summer and had been left out for much of the season but has been given the nod in recent weeks and has performed well.
Redknapp is also interested in Chelsea winger Florent Malouda who has been frozen out at Stamford Bridge and that may well be a move that could bear fruit but would entail QPR covering the French veteran’s sizable wage packet.
As well as this trio this source claims that QPR are also tracking former Blues veteran Nicolas Anelka, who has been linked with a move away from Chinese Premier League side Shanghai Shenhua.
Finally Redknapp has eyed up a move for Stoke City forward Kenwyne Jones, another realistic QPR target, who is yet to be handed a Premier League start by Tony Pulis this term. The 28 year old Trinidadian may well be tempted by a move to the capital.
One would imagine that QPR owner Tony Fernandes would look to Redknapp to offload a few players to help balance the books, especially given the funds handed to former boss Mark Hughes over the summer.
