QPR to outbid Tottenham for £8M West Ham midfielder Parker
The London Evening Standard says QPR are poised to make an £8million bid for the England midfielder.
Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes plans to make Parker his first marquee signing once his takeover of QPR is confirmed.
Parker is keen to return to the Premier League with Euro 2012 on the horizon while Fernandes, a self-confessed West Ham supporter, wants the 2011 Player of the Year to boost manager Neil Warnock's squad.
Tottenham are also preparing a bid for the 30-year-old but West Ham value the player at more than twice the £3.5m their London rivals are ready to offer.
