Harry Redknapp has made a £5million bid for West Brom’s Swedish defender Jonas Olsson.
Queens Park Rangers manager Redknapp is desperate to strengthen his defence to help the West London club’s battle against relegation and has taken a shine to Olsson, whose outstanding form this season has also seen him watched by Arsenal.
QPR believe they have a chance of getting the 29-year-old centre-half, who will be subject to a £4m buy-out clause in the summer.
Redknapp hopes West Brom will decide to cash in now, rather than have to take a smaller fee at the end of the season.
Olsson is believed to fancy a move to London.
