Djibril Cissé is wanted by the Qatari club Al-Gharafa on a permanent basis and the Queens Park Rangers striker will give serious consideration to the proposal.
The 31-year-old spent the second half of this past season on loan at Al-Gharafa and reportedly made a good impression both on and off the field.
Al-Gharafa are attempting to structure a transfer for when Cissé's loan officially ends on 30 June and QPR, who are cutting costs after their relegation from the Premier League, are thought to be receptive to a deal. Cissé has one year to run on his contract at Loftus Road.
QPR have released Tal Ben Haim, DJ Campbell, Rob Hulse and Radek Cerny while Fábio da Silva and Andros Townsend are at the end of their loans from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur respectively. The QPR manager Harry Redknapp would like to re-sign Townsend on loan although it is unclear whether Tottenham will agree.
Many other players face uncertain futures at QPR, with Joey Barton keen to remain at Marseille, where he played on loan last season. Bursaspor have the option to turn Anton Ferdinand's loan into a permanent move but they have not yet indicated a wish to do so. Ale Faurlin, who played at Palermo from January, is the returning loanee most likely to feature in the Championship.
Júlio César, the Brazil goalkeeper, is prominent on the list of the high earners Redknapp wants to shift but there have, as yet, been no offers for him.
