QPR boss Redknapp targets Shanghai Shenhua striker Anelka

QPR boss Harry Redknapp is eyeing Shanghai Shenhua striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Daily Mail says Redknapp has identified former Chelsea striker Anelka as a serious loan target.

The 33-year-old is contracted to Shanghai Shenhua, but could be available on a temporary basis from January given the Chinese Super League season has finished.

Anelka is keen to return to Europe on a full-time basis after privately admitting his move to China was a mistake.

Redknapp would look to secure a deal to sign Anelka until the end of the season, though the move would depend on QPR coming to an agreement with Shanghai over the player's £250,000-per-week wages.
