Redknapp worked with the Bulgaria forward at Spurs and has been alerted by reports that Berbatov, 33, wants a return to London.

The former Spurs, Manchester United and Fulham forward has scored six goals in 20 games so far this term.

Berbatov may be available for a bargain £1million and his £70,000-a- week salary would not be a stumbling block for QPR.
