Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has set his sights on the loan signing of former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lassana Diarra, according to the Daily Mail.
The 29-year-old, currently of Russian side Lokmotiv Moscow, has played under Redknapp before during their time at Portsmouth, winning the FA Cup in the 2007/08 season before then sealing a move to Real Madrid as part of his well-traveled career.
The Frenchman would add plenty of grit and experience to this newly-promoted QPR squad, who have continued their policy of buying big-name players in this summer’s transfer window.
Diarra could now be another to make the surprise move to Loftus Road, though it is thought that Lokomotiv would prefer to sell him for around £6m instead of loaning him out.
