QPR have lined up West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie as their next January transfer target.
The Nigerian has fallen out with Roy Hodgson, and Neil Warnock is looking for alternatives should a deal for Jermain Defoe not materialise.
The Daily Express are reporting that Warnock is desperate to bring attacking options to Loftus Road in the summer.
QPR owner Tony Fernandes has confirmed Neil Warnock will be making a number of signings in the transfer window to help extend a promising start to the season.
An offer of £7million has been mooted as the sufficient amount to convince Hodgson to part with last season’s top scorer at The Hawthorns.
Odemwingie scored 15 goals for the Baggies last season, but this term has been dogged by injury and he has not got going yet.
These injury problems have led to a public spat between player and manager, after Hodgeson claimed West Brom had “got nothing” out of the Nigeria international.
The prompted a reply from the 30-year-old, who posted a picture of his injured knee on Twitter.
Hoops boss Warnock has so far been unimpressed with Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell, feeling he needs to inject new impetus into his front line.
Hodgson may be willing to cut his losses on Odemwingie, as Irish striker Shane Long has so far proved to be a success in leading the line.
