After signing Loic Remy from Marseille for a club record fee of £8 million two weeks ago, QPR manager Harry Redknapp is looking to add two more players to his ever-growing squad.
Redknapp told reporters: "These are two players whose names have been mentioned but at the moment we're not close to doing anything.
"Crouch's name came up in a meeting with the chairman but I don't think Stoke want to sell him."
Crouch, 31, has played for Redknapp on three occasions during his career, having spells at Southampton, Portsmouth and Tottenham.
Samba, 28, is currently plying his trade in Russia with mega-rich Anzhi Makhachkala after leaving Blackburn in February 2012.
However, Redknapp has a desire to cut the QPR's wage bill, so it remains to be seen if they can match the defender's wage demands.
With QPR bottom of the Premier League, having shipped over 35 goals this season, they are in desperate need of some extra muscle at the back.
