QPR are the latest Premier League club to be linked with a move for Dutch international midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

The Inter Milan playmaker has been heavily linked with a move away from the San Siro in January, with a contract dispute that started in November set to end the 28-year-old’s stay in Italy.

Arsenal and Chelsea have both snubbed deals for the player, according to The Sun, whilst Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with moves for the player.

However, QPR now have a chance to bring the player to west London, although manager Harry Redknapp admits that a deal is unlikely.

“I was asked by one agent if I wanted to sign Sneijder. Of course I do. However, he’s on about £200,000 a week and now he wants to join QPR? I won’t name the agent, but let’s just say I think a deal is unlikely,” Redknapp is quoted as saying by The Sun.

The paper claims that, irrespective of the Sneijder deal, Redknapp is hoping to bring up to five players to Loftus Road during the first month of 2013.

As for the 90-cap Holland star, his next destination remains unclear, with the former Ajax starlet in transfer limbo because of the £200,000-a-week wages.

Manchester United were close to signing the player back in the summer of 2011, but an inability to agree personal terms at the time scuppered Sir Alex Ferguson’s efforts to bring the player to Old Trafford.

Andre Villas-Boas denied that Spurs had already agreed a deal to bring the player to White Hart Lane at the end of December, but the north London outfit appear to be interested, with The Daily Mirror reporting that they ‘lead the chase’ alongside Liverpool earlier this week.
