Fulham have put a £15m price tag on striker Bobby Zamora in a bid to ensure the England striker doesn’t leave Craven Cottage in January.
The People reports that Fulham are concerned by QPR’s continued interest in the 30 year-old forward, who made his first start for his country against Sweden at Wembley on Tuesday night. Neil Warnock has been handed a substantial budget by Rangers owner Tony Fernandes as he looks to build on his side’s strong start on their return to the top flight and Zamora reportedly features on his wishlist as does unsettled Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka.
Zamora, whose contract at Craven Cottage runs until 2014, has been the subject of newspaper reports suggesting he hasn’t seen eye-to-eye with new manager Martin Jol this season but it is believed that Fulham’s extraordinarily high valuation should ward off potential suitors. A much more likely transfer target for QPR is Andy Johnson, who the People claim is also interesting a number of MLS franchise. Johnson has turned down a new deal with the Whites – and with his contract expiring at the end of the current campaign – has been linked with a move to Loftus Road, either in January for a cut-price fee or on a Bosman in the summer.
