Queens Park Rangers have joined West Ham United in the chase for Nikica Jelavic, reports John Edwards of the Daily Mail.
The Croatia international has spent much of the current season on the bench at Everton, but is keen to play more first-team football to maintain his hopes of playing in the World Cup finals.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez is open to offers for the striker, as Peter Thompson of Goal.com reported.
And QPR boss Harry Redknapp is preparing to offer up to £5 million to bring Jelavic to Loftus Road, claims Edwards.
After Jelavic scored twice against QPR in the FA Cup third round on Saturday, Martinez has warned that the striker will not be allowed to leave cheaply, as Phil Kirkbride of the Liverpool Echo reported:
He (Jelavic) has been frustrated by the limited number of minutes he has had this season. We have been very open and honest with Niki about his situation.
Niki and John Heitinga are in the same boat. I don't want to lose them but we have got to be honest with them.
If (any offer) is right for the player and right for the club then we will look into it.
I understand that for players their age and with the World Cup around the corner, they deserve for us to have that approach.
But people won't get him on the cheap.
