Santa Cruz in Queens Park Rangers sights
Queens Park Rangers Football Club are interested in Roque Santa Cruz.
The Paraguayan international was a big-money signing for Manchester City in 2009, but he failed to make an impression at Eastlands and is out of favour under Roberto Mancini.
Santa Cruz spent the second half of last season on loan at former club Blackburn Rovers, but he failed to find the back of the net during nine Premier League appearances.
Despite this Steve Kean is eager to keep the 29-year-old at Ewood Park, but it is thought he could face competition from top-flight new-boys Rangers.
Neil Warnock is eager to boost his squad with experienced stars when the window reopens, and he hopes to persuade City to let him take Santa Cruz on loan for the campaign.
