QPR are lining up a £3million raid on West Ham for James Tomkins.
The former England Under-21 defender Tomkins has impressed in the Championship follows Hammers' relegation, and Hoops boss Neil Warnock will test the East Enders' resolve with a bid in the New Year.
Warnock is keen to buy young British defenders and has been promised substantial funds by chairman Tony Fernandes when the transfer window opens.
However, West Ham bos Sam Allardyce has become a huge admirer of Tomkins since taking charge at Upton Park, and is keen to offer him an improved contract.
