Scott Parker has emerged as a target for QPR who are ready to meet Tottenham's £2m valuation for the midfielder this summer.
Parker excelled for Spurs when he first joined the side from West Ham but his last season was a disappointing one, and as the campaign continued Andre Villas-Boas increasingly limited his game time as a result.
The arrival of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho will put Parker's future in further doubt, and the Guardian are claiming that the north London club are willing to part with him for around £2m in order to cut their wage bill as much as possible.
Villas-Boas is entering his second year in charge of the same club for the first time in his career, and after a somewhat successful season with Tottenham - they finished with their highest points tally in the history of the club, but missed out on a Champions League spot - all eyes will be on the Portuguese tactician's decisions as he looks to further build the squad.
Last season he began a clearout post-Harry Redknapp, and now seems set to do the same again this summer, with Parker possibly moving to QPR to work again with his former boss.
The Daily Mail says the England international is fielding serious interest from the relegated club, and though his preference is to stay in the Premier League, he is also aware that after a disappointing season top flight clubs will be less inclined to give the 32 year old a chance.
Redknapp is also believed to be keen on Peter Crouch, with the manager looking to recoup a host of his former players as he looks to restore harmony in the QPR dressing room.
For both players, it will be difficult to meet their high wages at Tottenham and Stoke, but Redknapp is hopeful that the players will take a pay cut in order to secure regular first team football.
