LONDON - English Premier League club Queens Park Rangers would be interested in signing Nicolas Anelka in the January transfer window if the price is right, manager Harry Redknapp said on Friday.

Anelka left Chelsea for Shanghai Shenhua a year ago but local media in China have reported that the French striker's management is in talks to cut short his contract due to unpaid wages.

The much-travelled player, now 33, has reportedly been earning more than US$300,000 (S$366,000) a week in China.

Redknapp said QPR's Malaysian chairman Tony Fernandes had contacts with Anelka's management but cost was the key.
