Rangers ready to make £7.5m bid for Tottenham man – report

QPR are set to make a £7.5m bid for Michael Dawson, the Sunday Mirror say.

Rangers, who tried to sign Dawson in the summer, are said to be planning another attempt to capture him from Tottenham after having an offer for Jonas Olsson rejected by West Brom.

R’s boss Harry Redknapp recently insisted he had given up hope of signing Dawson and Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has made it clear he has no intention of selling him.

But it is claimed that if Dawson – who flatly refused to move to Loftus Road in August – says he wants to leave, Villas-Boas would have trouble keeping him.

The Sunday Mirror also claim that Aston Villa are reluctant to sell striker Darren Bent to QPR, who supposedly want him.

The Mail on Sunday report that Newcastle have had a bid accepted by Marseille for striker Loic Remy – a player QPR definitely do want.

The Sunday People report Fulham’s interest in Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila – another of Rangers’ transfer targets.

Fulham’s Chris Baird is wanted by West Brom and Reading, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Baird apparently wants to stay at Craven Cottage, where his contract expires this summer, but could be tempted by the prospect of a long-term deal elsewhere.

The People say German club Schalke are keen for Fulham boss Martin Jol to take over as their manager.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola will snub Chelsea and decide to become Manchester City manager in the summer, according to The Sun on Sunday.

He is said to have opted for City as he is convinced they can become a force to rival his former club Barcelona.

The People say Ashley Cole intends to have talks with Manchester United when his Chelsea contract expires in the summer and would prefer to stay in the Premier League rather than move abroad.

The Sunday Express suggest Chelsea striker Fernando Torres’ former club Atletico Madrid will offer him the chance to return there on loan next season.
