The 65-year-old believes the striker will be highly sought in January and has not ruled out a move for the the Frenchman, while also revealing he is on the look out for loanees
Redknapp is reported to be in the market for a new striker in January, with Andrew Johnson and Bobby Zamora both suffering from injury troubles, leaving the club with Djibril Cisse as the club's only recognized front man.
And while he remained coy on links with the French forward – who has previously played for Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool – the former Tottenham boss did not rule out a potential move for the 33-year-old.
The 65-year-old also revealed that he is due to meet with chairman Tony Fernandes soon to discuss which direction the club will head in during the January transfer window.
Redknapp admitted that extensive funds may not be available to him, but did state his desire for new recruits – even if they were to come in the form of a loan deal.
"We will sit down and the owners will have a look at the situation," Redknapp stated. "Maybe we won't have to spend any money. Maybe we can pick up a couple of loans. It's a case of knowing who is around, knowing who is available and who can do a job for you."
