QPR Boss Harry Redknapp Lines Up Nicolas Anelka Bid

Loftus Road side keen on former Chelsea star.

Harry Redknapp has made an enquiry into the availability of much-travelled France striker Nicolas Anelka.

The 33-year-old, whose list of previous clubs includes Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid, only moved to Shanghai Shenhua from Stamford Bridge last January but could be ready to quit China.

Newly-appointed QPR boss Redknapp is desperate to strengthen his strike-force for the six-month relegation battle facing the Premier League’s winless bottom club and has drawn up a list which includes Anelka.

If Nicolas Anelka is ready to quit China, and enough speculation appears to suggest this to be a possibility, then a move to help QPR avoid the drop may be the type of challenge the French forward would be interested in.

Having spent four years in West London with Chelsea perhaps the allure of a move back to the area could tempt the 33 year old striker to sign a short term deal at Loftus Road.

Redknapp could well do with some attacking reinforcements. Despite the fact his QPR squad has a number of striking options the Super Hoops have managed just 10 goals in 13 matches thus far this season.

Anelka has proven Premier League experienced having scored 124 league top tier goals in 307 starts for Arsenal, Liverpool, Bolton, Man City and Chelsea.
