Get French Football News are covering news that French publication L’Équipe understands that former AC Milan Kévin Constant could be in line for an unexpected move to Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
The 28-year-old Guinea international, who can play either left back, left midfield or central midfield, is set to travel to London in the coming days to discuss a potential move. He has been without a club since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor over a month ago after the club failed to pay a large proportion of his wages.
Whilst the ex-Chievo and Genoa man is also being linked with a move to French Ligue 1 side’s St Étienne and Toulouse, it would still represent quite an ambitious signing by the Loftus Road club. Considering that the club are looking to lower their wage bill, especially with the rumoured sale of high-earning goalkeeper Rob Green, then it remains to be seen if this is a seriously realistic move.
If the player would be prepared to play within a wage that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s club can offer, then he may move. St Étienne almost certainly could offer more wages and they also still remain in the Europa League, so they are more lures to the club. However if Constant wants a move to the luxury surroundings of the mega-bucks Premier League, then signing for QPR would certainly put him ‘in the shop window’ for the rest of the season.
Nevertheless, Constant is at least going to discuss the move to QPR. Although the conversation could be quite a short one when it comes to discussing potential wage packets.
