Queens Park Rangers have had a bid rejected for Eredivisie star George Cox, according to Limburger, while the Championship outfit have also been warned off a pursuit of AFC Wimbledon ace Jack Rudoni.
After an impressive end to the 2020/21 season, Mark Warburton’s side are looking to build on those foundations and push for the top-six this time around.
An impressive transfer window would go some way to making that a reality, with fans’ favourite Charlie Austin returning to west London on a permanent transfer following a difficult spell at West Bromwich Albion.
Ipswich Town midfielder Andre Dozzell joined the R’s last week too, becoming their fourth signing of the summer after Sam Field, Jordy de Wijs and Austin.
But could Cox be number five?

The former Brighton and Hove Albion youngster failed to make the grade at the Amex but has taken Dutch football by storm since joining an exciting Fortuna Sittard side, producing a combined total of ten goals and assists from left-back last season.
Cox even scored two brilliantly taken goals against eventual champions Ajax in October.
Liking what they have seen from a swashbuckling full-back, QPR have launched a bid worth £500,000 to bring the former Northampton Town loanee back to England (Limburger).
Fortuna have rejected that offer out of hand, however, and it remains to be seen whether QPR return to the table.
Meanwhile, AFC Wimbledon coach Mark Robinson has insisted 20-year-old midfielder Rudoni is not for sale after he came to the attention of QPR following an eye-catching breakthrough campaign in League One.
“No offers have come to the club at all,” Robinson tells London News Online. “As far as I know, Jack will be a very big part of what we’re doing.”
