Lazio midfielder Pasquale Foggia considering QPR switch

Lazio midfielder Pasquale Foggia is considering a move to QPR, according to the player's agent.

The 28-year-old, who is under contract with the Biancoceleste outfit until June 2013, has been linked with a move away from Rome this summer.

"We are trying to find a solution," said Foggia's agent Marco Sommella to Tuttomwercatoweb.com. "We will see what the market offers.

"We are talking about an important player that deserves to play in an important league.

"There is the option of Cesena, who wanted him a year ago, but there is also the opportunity for him to join QPR.

"QPR are looking for a player to replace Adel Taarabt if he was to be sold to Paris St Germain.

"Hence, I don't exclude the possibility that Foggia plays abroad.

"We have to wait and see what the market has to offer also because in Italy everything seems to be at a standstill."
