Race for Swansea striker hots up with Redknapp joining list of admirers.
The race for Swansea striker, Danny Graham, is hotting up with reports that QPR have joined the likes of Sunderland, Norwich City and Reading in looking to sign the front man, according to The Daily Mail.
Graham has reportedly become available after struggling for first team opportunities at the Liberty Stadium.
Swans manager Michael Laudrup has typically preferred to play Michu up front as the lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
That has left Graham somewhat marginalised and a host of Premier League clubs are rumoured to be ready to swoop.
The player has a proven scoring record in the Premier League, netting twelve times last season as Swansea, who were then managed by current Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, finished in 11th position.
His lack of appearances this season has failed to deter potential suitors, not surprising considering the player’s form recently where he has enjoyed a brief spell back in the Swansea starting eleven.
The forward netted Swansea’s 87th minute equaliser in the 2-2 FA Cup draw with Arsenal, taking his recent tally to three goals in three games, and that has persuaded a number of clubs about the player’s merits.
Redknapp is keen to bring in reinforcements to QPR in the hope his side can pull of a miraculous recovery and escape relegation.
The former Spurs boss is reportedly unimpressed with the likes of Djibril Cisse and Darren Mackie and is ready to test Swansea’s resolve by making a £4 million bid for the former Watford striker.
