London: Queens Park Rangers is targeting former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka in the January transfer window.

The former France international left the English Premier League a year ago for Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua, but QPR manager Harry Redknapp hopes to entice him back.

Redknapp claims the 33-year-old Anelka is "finishing in China so he is available." Redknapp says if the financial package Anelka wants is "within reason, he is a player that could certainly improve your team. There is no doubt about it."
