Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Queens Park Rangers are hoping to sell defender Armand Traore this summer as the recently relegated Premier League club continue to offload as many high earners off their wage bill as possible before the new season gets under way next month, reports the Daily Mirror.

The Senegal international only arrived at Loftus Road from London rivals Arsenal in August 2011 on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, with the 23-year-old having since made 57 appearances for the west London club in all competitions, 55 of which came in the Premier League.

However, with the club having suffered relegation to the Championship at the end of last season, owner Tony Fernandes is now embarking on a series of cost-cutting measures to prepare for life outside the top flight.

Already QPR have managed to sell big earners such as defender Chris Samba and front man Jay Bothroyd, while they are also hopeful of finding buyers for the likes of experienced Brazil international Julio Cesar and Spanish midfield player Esteban Granero before the summer transfer window closes on Aug 31.

And with both Russian giants Dynamo Moscow and Ligue 1 outfit Lille thought to be keen on landing the pacy left back, QPR may also be about to remove another star from their wage bill.
