QPR target former Malaga striker

Former Malaga striker Javier Saviola is a target for recently-relegated Queens Park Rangers, reports the Daily Express.

The 31-year-old is currently a free agent after the Costa del Sol club decided not to offer him a new contract as part of their cost-cutting measures, and QPR are ready to step in and offer him the chance to play in England.

It is understood Saviola does not mind the step down to join a Championship outfit, although West Ham United and Celtic are also believed to be interested, and it appears his next move is not motivated solely by money.

“Javier is more than keen to link up with Harry Redknapp. He knows his teams play good football and the chance to help QPR back into the Premier League is genuinely appealing to him.

“His next move is not just about finances. He wants a footballing challenge and England will give him that,” Sky Sports quotes a source as saying.
