Queens Park Rangers have been linked with a move for Portuguese international Ricardo Quaresma.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp recently stated that the West London club will be active during the transfer window.

Redknapp said, "I will be taking some chances now in the window, some will, hopefully they will come off but there is no guarantee because I'm not going to be able to go out and pay 30, 25 million pounds for a guaranteed Van Persie or some fantastic player with great character or whatever.

"I've got to take some gambles."

Quaresma would certainly be a gamble, heralded as a wonderkid during his time at Sporting Lisbon, the 29-year-old winger has played at the likes of Barcelona, Internazionale and Chelsea however, never managed to live up to expectations.

The former Beşiktaş winger recently had his contract terminated with mutual consent and is now a free agent.

Quaresma joined Beşiktaş from Inter Milan for €7.3 million in 2010. The Portuguese winger has 27 assists and 18 goals in 73 appearances for the Istanbul club.

The 28-year-old winger scored 18 goals and made 27 assists in 73 games for the Black Eagles.
