Queens Park Rangers and West Ham have both missed out on the chance to sign Nicolas Anelka as he is set to link up with Juventus for the rest of the season according to goal.com.

Juventus have been in constant contact with Anelka’s club Shanghai Shenhua this week and have now come to an agreement to cancel his current contract in order to sign on in Turin.

Anelka will join Fernando Llorente as a new signing at the Old Lady and they still haven’t given up hope of bringing Didier Drogba to the Italy either.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp had admitted that he was a big fan of Anelka’s and with money to spend; many thought his arrival in West London could have been imminent.

West Ham are still on the lookout for a forward who knows where the goal is and Sam Allardyce’s friendship with Anelka seemed to pave a way for the Frenchman to join the Hammers.

Both clubs will now be in the market to add to their strikeforce before the Thursday night deadline.
