QPR are rumoured to be ready to make an audacious bid to sign France international striker Olivier Giroud according to The Daily Mail.
The Loftus Road side narrowly avoided relegation last term, but with wealthy owner Tony Fernandes at the helm the London club are expected to splash the cash this summer.
Despite already having the likes of Bobby Zamora and Djibril Cisse in their ranks, Mark Hughes is thought to want to sign another striker this summer.
Giroud, who was been included in Laurent Blanc’s France squad for Euro 2012, helped Montpellier surprisingly win the Ligue 1 championship in 2011-12, and as such is one of the hottest prospects in European football.
The French club’s owner had previously stated that he would not sell Giroud for £50 million, but it is believed that the forward has a £12.8 million release clause in his contract.
Arsenal are known admirers of the attacker, and a number of other big-name European sides are said to be monitoring his situation.
Despite this, QPR are ready to make an offer for Giroud in what should be a busy summer at the club.
