Queens Park Rangers have been busy in the summer transfer window so far, but they are not prepared to lose any steam heading into the last 3 weeks of trading, reports Metro. Hoops boss Harry Redknapp now has his eye on the Tottenham youngster Andros Townsend, as he aims to bolster his attacking options next year.
Rangers are said to be lining up a £10 million bid for the player who Redknapp knows from his days as Spurs boss. Townsend really broke into the Tottenham line-up during the first half of last season, however he was not able to maintain his place until the end of the last campaign following an injury and a dip in form.
His new manager at White Hart Lane Mauricio Pochettino, though, is said to be impressed with the youngster’s attitude and technical ability. It could prove difficult for Rangers to prise him away from Spurs, but Redknapp is hopeful that a £10 million offer will prove too tempting to turn down.
Townsend has been on a series of loan moves until now, including once at QPR themselves in 2013, but is thought to be seeking a little more stability heading into next season. A move to Rangers this time would be made on a permanent basis, as the 23 year old aims for regular first team football in the Premier League. QPR can give him that, but it remains unclear whether Tottenham can do the same.
