Transfer news: Harry Redknapp wants a fourth reunion with Stoke City forward Peter Crouch
The QPR manager has highlighted attack as an area in need of strengthening
Friday 24 January 2014
Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is hopeful of adding Peter Crouch to his attacking options after working with the former England striker at Portsmouth, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.
Managing the 6ft 7in striker on three separate occasions in the Premier League, Redknapp will know how to get the best out of Crouch should any move materialise.
QPR are currently second in the Championship, five points behind leaders Leicester City, and the former West Ham United manager has isolated attack as one of his side's weaknesses.
Crouch, on the other hand, has scored six times for the Potters this season and may welcome a return to London with his young family and wife Abbey Clancy.
It would also mark a return to Loftus Road for the former Liverpool forward after scoring ten goals for the R's in the 2000/2001 season.
He later moved to Aston Villa before spells with the South Coast rivals.
When asked about his boyhood side in 2007, he replied: "When I was younger my dad did take me to see Chelsea, but when I was with my mates I was more a QPR fan."
