QPR have had a bid for Leroy Fer rejected by Norwich and are likely to make an improved offer.
The 24-year-old Netherlands international, who featured in the recent World Cup, is expected to leave Carrow Road this summer following the Canaries’ relegation from the Premier League.
Rangers boss Harry Redknapp is keen to sign at least one midfielder and has been considering other options since missing out on Steve Sidwell, who joined Stoke, and Craig Bryson, who signed a new contract at Derby.
Redknapp is aware of Fer’s potential availability and is hoping Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes can agree a deal to sign him by the end of the week.
Fer joined Norwich from FC Twente a year ago and made 29 league appearances last season, scoring three goals. He previously had a spell at Feyenoord.
With Rangers confident of improving their midfield options, the out-of-contract Gary O’Neil has been told the club have no plans to offer him a new deal despite inviting him to join their pre-season trip to Germany.
O’Neil featured as Charlie Austin’s goal gave Redknapp’s side a 1-0 win against Rot Weiß Erfurt on Tuesday evening.
