Queens Park Rangers are set to continue a busy summer of spending after they entered in to negotiations with Internazionale for goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

London rivals Tottenham have been heavily linked with the Brazil international in the previous two weeks as manager Andre Villas-Boas looks to secure a younger alternative to veterans Brad Friedel and Carlo Cudicini.

However, it is QPR that have seemingly made the first contact, with the Guardian reporting that Cesar is talking with representatives from the Loftus Road club about a potential move to the Premier League.

The 32-year-old has been told by Inter that he can leave the club after they brought in a new number one in Samir Handanovic from Udinese.

QPR have already signed a new stopper this summer when they managed to land Robert Green who was available on a free transfer having left West Ham at the end of his contract.

The England keeper had a debut to forget as he conceded five goals against Swansea on the opening day of the Premier League season; taking particular blame for the opening goal scored by Michu.

This defeat has led Mark Hughes to reassess his options and work hard to bring in more defensive stability. QPR have had an offer for Michael Dawson accepted by Tottenham, while they are also said to be close to signing Ricardo Carvalho from Real Madrid.

Tottenham have also had a busy few days in the transfer market and the possibility of them trying to sign Cesar has not been ruled out.

They will have to compete with QPR as their technical director Mike Rigg is currently in discussions with Cesar to see whether the deal can be completed before the transfer window closes next Friday.

The London clubs are currently two of the busiest sides in England as they both attempt to push through a number of deals. QPR have already signed eight players in this transfer window, while Spurs have made three additions to their squad.
