QPR have made an increased offer of £7m for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila, according to reports in France.
And Le Parisien are claiming that the Premier League strugglers have increased their offer to £7m - with Rennes apparently willing to do a deal if they are offered over £8m.
Reports had suggested that M'Vila would refuse to move to Loftus Road due to their perilous position in the Premier League table.
But the newspaper is reporting that the 22-year-old is open to the transfer as long as there is a relegation release clause in his contract.
And that could ensure Rangers beat the likes of Newcastle to the punch for a player who has been talked of as one of the finest talents in Europe.
