Redknapp to offer Anelka Premier League return with QPR

Harry Redknapp will try to save Queens Park Rangers’ Premier League status by offering former Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka the chance to return to English football, the Daily Mail has reported.

The newspaper adds that Redknapp will have up to £10m to spend in the January transfer window, but much of that will be directed towards loan deals. However, the newly-appointed Rangers boss is in search of a striker after injuries to Andrew Johnson and Bobby Zamora left Djibril Cisse as the club’s only fit centre-forward.

Anelka, who also played for Liverpool and Bolton Wanderers, is thought to be eager to return to European football after spending almost a year in China with Shanghai Shenhua. The Chinese Super League season has come to an end, though, which could pave the way for the 33-year-old to join the 10th club of his career.

After starting out at Paris Saint-Germain, Anelka moved to Arsenal as a teenager then on to Real Madrid, before a return to his first club. From there, Anelka joined Liverpool on loan then Manchester City permanently, and later Fenerbahce, Bolton and Chelsea, who allowed the former France captain to move to China in January 2012.
