West London club are desperate to add more firepower to their Championship attack.
Queens Park Rangers head coach Harry Redknapp wants to be reunited with Stoke City front man Peter Crouch yet again, with the giant attacker now unwanted by new Potters boss Mark Hughes, says the Daily Mirror.
The some-time England international has only been at the Britannia stadium for the past two seasons now, having originally arrived at the club from Tottenham Hotspur on a four-year deal in August 2010 for an initial fee of £10 million that could potentially rise to as much as £12m depending upon add ons.
However, as has so often been the case with many of the 32-year-old’s plethora of previous clubs, after an initial promising start to life at Stoke, the striker then found it hard to settle at the club and soon found himself warming the substitutes’ bench under previous trainer Tony Pulis.
And with a record in front of goal since first arriving at Stoke less than two years ago of 22 goals in his 78 appearances in all competitions, including 17 strikes in his 66 Premier League outings for the club, new Potters manager Hughes is said to be happy to let the player leave this summer.
All of which has opened the door for a possible link-up again between Redknapp and Crouch, which would be the fifth time that the pair have worked together over the years.
