QPR transfers advisor Gianni di Marzio admits they tried for Atalanta striker German Denis.

Denis is leading the Serie A scoring charts this season and is on-loan at Atalanta from Napoli.

"Denis? I've known him since he played in Argentina, I wanted to bring him to Queens Park Rangers," revealed Di Marzio. "He lacked continuity at Napoli.

"With Atalanta he has found his place."
