QPR transfer news: Harry Redknapp plots bid for ex-Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o - reports
QPR boss Redknapp looking to sign former Barcelona star to aid survival bid
Thursday 24 July 2014
Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has launched an ambitious bid to sign Samuel Eto'o on a free transfer with the former Chelsea striker's agent set to fly into London today.
The 34-year-old is looking for a new club after Jose Mourinho opted not to offer the Cameroon international a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
According to the Daily Mirror, Claudio Vigorelli, the player's agent, is due into England today to discuss personal terms on a move to the newly-promoted Rangers.
Despite receiving a number of offers from across the globe, Eto'o would prefer to remain in London and has sounded out Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman, however, is yet to show his hand.
