Bobby Zamora is being linked with Crystal Palace and West Brom ahead of Friday’s transfer deadline.
QPR have made the 33-year-old striker available and will happily let him go if a club comes in for him.
Zamora’s contract at Loftus Road expires at the end of the season and he is not part of boss Harry Redknapp’s plans.
A number of Championship clubs have been made aware of his availability, but top-flight sides Albion and Palace are being touted as possible destinations.

Redknapp said: “We thought we had a couple and then they went elsewhere.
“We wanted to take a lad from Auxerre, a left winger who I thought was fantastic, and at the last minute he decided to stay in France. I think he is going to Rennes.”
But Redknapp confirmed he is still hoping to sign Ishak Belfodil on loan from Inter Milan despite Italian media reports that a potential deal collapsed.
