The Hoops are allegedly weighing up a £2 million move to bring the former England man across west London from their rivals as Neil Warnock wants a proven top-flight goalscorerhere.
Fulham striker Andrew Johnson has emerged as a surprise target for QPR as Neil Warnock's side try to ensure their Premier League safety, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The forward's deal runs out at the end of the season and Fulham may be willing to let him go for a fee in the January transfer window rather than lose him for free next summer.
Despite signing Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell in the summer, QPR are seeking an experienced Premier League goalscorer having scored just 10 goals in 11 top flight games and Neil Warnock is trying to persuade new Hoops chairman Tony Fernandes to lure the 30-year-old to Loftus Road.
Johnson has battled back from serious injury to score eight goals for Fulham this season, but his demands of a £2m-a-year contract could see him leave Craven Cottage.
A move for a defender is also on the cards for QPR following the August deadline collapse of a move for Sebastien Bassong from Tottenham, with Manchester City's Nedum Onouha another possible target.
