It appears QPR are considering re-igniting their interest in Nigeria’s Peter Odemwingie.
According to The Mirror, Rangers boss, Harry Redknapp, was considering adding Colombian player, Duvan Zapata, who plays for Argentine side Estudiantes, to his side who are the hot favourites to get a promotion to the Premier league at the end of the season.
The 22-year-old, however, has not yet flown to England for talks as planned, because as Italian outfit Sassuolo – newly promoted to Serie A – have now offered more cash. Roma are also interested in Zapata, who had been linked with West Ham, so Redknapp is now trying to bring in Odemwingie.
The 32-year-old has been ostracised at West Brom since his unsuccessful attempt to switch to the London club in January, which saw him allegedly drive from the Midlands to London on his own on deadline day in anticipation of a deal.
He was filmed sitting in his car near QPR’s Loftus Road home, voicing his delight at joining them, but the deal fell through and Odemwingie had to stay at Albion – without ever starting another match.
The Nigerian can leave the Baggies for £3.5million, but Redknapp has to try to persuade him to drop down into the Championship.
