Queens Park Rangers are lining up a move for former Arsenal misfit Nicklas Bendtner, according to a report.

Football website ESPN FC claim that the Hoops are considering a move for the 28-year-old, who was released from his contract with Wolfsburg in April when he had over a year of his contract remaining.

QPR boss Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink is keen on the free agent as he attempts to bolster his attacking options with the Championship season getting into full-swing.

The Denmark international moved to the Bundesliga in 2014 after his contract with the Gunners expired, but now could set for a return to English football.

Bendtner scored 47 goals and supplied 22 assists in 171 appearances for Arsenal and added a further nine goals in 47 matches for Wolfsburg.

The Denmark international, who has scored 29 goals in 73 matches for his country, has also had loan spells at Sunderland, Birmingham and Juventus.

This move could represent the chance for the striker to get his fledgling career back on track, working under Hasselbaink at Loftus Road.

Rangers have made a good start to the season, winning two of their opening four Championship fixtures.
