QPR striker Andy Johnson has insisted that the club is big enough to sign Tottenham forward Jermain Defoe according to The Mirror.

Defoe could find his first team opportunities restricted this season after Spurs boss Andre Vilas-Boas made bringing in some new strikers one of his top priorities.

AVB was reportedly unhappy with the performances of his front-men last season after Defoe faded away in the second half of the season and Manu Adebayor never got going.

Spurs are thought to be close to securing a move for Valencia forward Roberto Soldado while they have also been linked with a number of other forwards.

Defoe is thought to be keen to secure first team football as he looks to book his place in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for next summer’s World Cup finals tournament in Brazil.

That could pave the way for a move to QPR with reports suggesting boss Harry Redknapp is about to make an audacious offer for Defoe.

Defoe and Redknapp know each other well from their time at Spurs together and the striker could be tempted by a reunion with his former mentor.

It remains to be seen whether the lure of reuniting with Redknapp would be enough to persuade Defoe to drop down a division.
