QPR have made a £5m bid for Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba.

Manager Neil Warnock has made the 27-year-old Congolese his first permanent target of the January transfer window.

Warnock, backed by Malaysian tycoon Tony Fernandes, has promised signings to help QPR climb away from the Premier League relegation zone.

He signed Manchester United’s Italian striker Federico Macheda on loan in midweek, but has admitted he needs to strengthen his defence.

Samba, who joined Rovers for £450,000 in 2007 from German side Hertha Berlin, has made 160 Premier League appearances, scoring 16 goals.

This may well be the first of many bids lodged with Blackburn Rovers for their solid centre back and one wonders if a bidding war may ensue. The Congo international is one of the most crucial player’s in Steve Kean’s Ewood Park side and the relegation threatened side can ill afford to lose such a key player but the 27 year old has reportedly made it clear he wishes to leave.

QPR have hit a run of poor form and could do with beefing up their defensive options but Neil Warnock will be lucky to snap up Samba at that price, especially with the likes of Tottenham, Everton and Sunderland also said to be interested.
