QPR face frustration in their pursuit of Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.

The Ligue 1 side sold Capoue's midfield partner Moussa Sissoko to Newcastle last week and are unwilling to part with another prized asset in the middle of their season.

With Mohamed Diame's future at West Ham still in the balance and Marouane Fellaini being linked with a move to Chelsea, the Hammers and the Toffees have also shown an interest in the 24-year-old.
