Harry Redknapp went straight from QPR’s draw with Spurs to France to pursue talks with transfer targets Yann M’Vila and Loic Remy.
Redknapp flew to see midfielder M’Vila in action for Rennes against Bordeaux and on Sunday he plans to watch Marseille’s Remy against Sochaux.
Newcastle also want Remy, who declined to even meet with Redknapp when the R’s boss recently travelled across the Channel in the hope of speaking to him.
But Rangers still believe there is a chance the France striker could be persuaded to move to west London rather than stay at Marseille or join the Magpies.
M’Vila has attracted some interest from Arsenal, with Fulham also believed to be ready to make an offer for him.
He was reported to have rejected QPR but the club have still not received a firm answer and hope to hold discussions with the 25-year-old.
Redknapp said: “M’Vila is an interesting player – a player I tried to sign when I was at Tottenham – and there will be other clubs interested in him I’m sure.
“And it’s difficult when you’re at the bottom, sure. It’s difficult to attract players to your club.
“But I think players might look at our last couple of results and think ‘there is chance for QPR’.
“It may be an exciting end to the season and a challenge they might want to take up.”
