Marseille midfielder Mathieu Valbuena is a reported £5.5m target for Queens Park Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers have reportedly joined the race to sign Marseille attacking midfielder Mathieu Valbuena.

The 29-year-old impressed during this summer's World Cup with France, and was subsequently linked with moves to Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool.

French Publication L'Equipe reports that QPR have matched Dynamo Moscow's £5.5m bid for Valbuena, although the player's agent quickly played down talk of the diminutive midfielder making a move to Russia.

Valbuena, who joined Marseille in 2006, made 39 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit last season.
