Hoops have been heavily linked with both stars of late.
Queens Park Rangers head coach Harry Redknapp has admitted that the newly promoted Premier League club may struggle to be able to sign Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard this summer, according to reports in the Daily Express.
The west London club overcame Derby County 1-0 in dramatic fashion in the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday thanks to front man Bobby Zamora’s late winner to bounce straight back to the Premier League at the very first time of asking.
And already QPR have been heavily linked with a number of big-name veteran players, including the likes of both former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.
Both players are set to be available on a free transfer when their current contracts at their respective clubs run out at the end of next month, although Redknapp has now cast doubt on QPR’s chances of being able to persuade the duo to make the move to Loftus Road for next season.
“I would think there’s absolutely no chance of getting Frank. He’s at Chelsea,” said the QPR trainer.
“I’d be very surprised if Chelsea don’t keep him anyway – he’s just been such a fantastic player.
“Rio’s now a free agent but I’m sure he’s going to have so many offers.
“Again, I love Rio, I signed them both as 15-year-olds but the chances of getting them to QPR are very slim.”
