Queens Park Rangers have been given a boost in their pursuit to land Frenchman Mathieu Valbuena after he turns down Russian side Dynamo Moscow.
As reported by the Daily Express, The World Cup pint-sized star, 29, has alerted many clubs to his availability after a string of great performances for his national side at this summer’s tournament and also for his current club Marseille.
Other teams interested in the player include big name Premier League stars Arsenal and Liverpool after Valbuena looks for a move following the World Cup finals in Brazil.
And with QPR being a newly promoted side they want to strengthen their squad for the new campaign to try and avoid relegation back down to the Championship.
Having already signed Steven Caulker and Rio Ferdinand this summer so far, the R’s will want to bring in some more attacking creativity, with Valbuena fitting the bill perfectly.
QPR are willing to offer the winger very tempting wages to sign him, but with the player turning down a three year contract for €10 million to join Dynamo Moscow in Russia, they will have to stump up big money to land him.
The player is said to prefer a move to Spain, but could be tempted if the offer is right.
The R’s are currently on their pre-season tour of Germany where they will face Red Bull Leipzig on Saturday.
The London club will want to wrap up the signing before the start of the Premier League season in three weeks time, when they kick off against Hull wanting to get their new season off to a flying start with three points.
