Both Dinamo Moscow and Bordeaux are said to be keen on signing Queens Park Rangers defender Armand Traore for £1.5 million this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Senegal international has been at Loftus Road for the past two seasons now, having originally arrived in west London from arch-rivals Arsenal in August 2011 on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

And in the intervening two-year period, the 23-year-old has appeared in 57 matches for QPR overall in all competitions, 55 of which came in the Premier League, and contributing three assists along the way.

However, following the club’s relegation back to the Championship at the end of last season, head coach Harry Redknapp has been busy all summer long trying to offload those players with hefty salaries from the club’s wage bill as QPR start to prepare for life outside the top flight next season.

And one of those men in question is  Traore, with the full back’s current contract in the capital due to expire on June 30 2014, meaning that QPR owner Tony Fernandes would much rather prefer selling the left back in a cut-price deal this summer rather than risk losing the player on a free next year.
