‘Audacious bid’ for Kalou

West Ham have reportedly launched an audacious bid to sign Salomon Kalou on loan.

The Daily Mail say the Hammers are hopeful of agreeing a deal with Chelsea, who are said to be closing on an £8m swoop for winger Kevin de Bruyne after lodging an improved bid with Genk.

The Daily Mirror say Chelsea plan to sign de Bruyne and then loan him back to Genk for the rest of the season.

Zamora is a target for QPR.

The Mail also say that while remaining keen on Bobby Zamora, QPR boss Mark Hughes wants the striker’s Fulham team-mate Clint Dempsey and is weighing up a move for South Africa forward Katlego Mphela, 27, of Mamelodi Sundowns.

It is also claimed that Hughes wants to take R’s youth product Raheem Stirling back to Loftus Road on loan but Liverpool are not keen.

Sao Paulo striker Henrique could still join QPR despite being denied a work permit, according to the South American club’s vice-president Joao Lopes.

“Both parties will meet again to try to come to an agreement,” the Brazilian media quoted Lopes as saying.

Anton Ferdinand plans to ignore QPR’s order to shake John Terry’s hand before Saturday’s match against Chelsea and will not acknowledge the Blues captain, according to the Mirror.

Finally, The Sun claim Paris St-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti is to sign Alex from Chelsea for £4m but will wait until the summer to raid his former club for Frank Lampard.
