QPR boss Harry Redknapp is moving for Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder Lassana Diarra.

The Mirror says Redknapp is planning an audacious swoop for former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Diarra.

The 29-year-old, though, is thought to be on around £80,000-a-week with Rangers chief Tony Fernandes hesitant to sanction a contract at that expense.

Diarra has 28 caps for France, the last of which was won in 2010, and is believed to be keen on a Premier League switch.
