QPR boss Harry Redknapp flew to Marseille yesterday to start talks over an £8million move for striker Loic Remy.
The Loftus Road boss sat next to Marseille president Vincent Labrune at the club’s French Cup clash with Guingamp.
Andre-Pierre Gignac — once a Fulham target — got both goals in Marseille’s 2-1 win but Remy is Redknapp’s first choice.
Remy, 26, has been linked with a move to England before. But Marseille are now ready to let him go — if the price is right.
The French club’s sporting director Jose Anigo said: “English clubs are looking at our players.
“If a big club comes in for Remy and he is interested, then we will see.
“His injuries hampered him and saw him miss the Euros. But I think he is back. I can see in training there is a renewed confidence.”
Redknapp is also keen on Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila, 22.
But Rangers will need to up their opening bid of £6.5m for the France international.
