If QPR can sell Leroy Fer, Steven Caulker and Sandro - the Hoops head coach can get new faces beyond the current budget.
But chief executive Lee Hoos (see video above for the entire interview) warns it’s not as easy as fans imagine to move players who cost hefty fees and who are on decent Premier League wages.
In fact, reports have it the deal to take midfielder Sandro to Sporting Lisbon have collapsed because the ex-Tottenham player has failed a medical.
Swansea are interested in taking Leroy Fer permanently after his loan spell there, but selling defender Steven Caulker, despite a loan to Liverpool next season might be harder still.
Our colleagues at the South Wales Evening Post say Fer wants to be a permanent Swan.
City chairman Huw Jenkins told reporter Gareth Vincent: “The manager has made his feelings about Leroy known and if we can find a deal that suits all parties, we would like to have him with us.
“Leroy did well for us after coming in on loan last season and we are now in discussions with QPR.
"But he will only come back if we can find a deal that suits us.”
Hoos insist there are two budgets for head coach Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at Loftus Road - the given one and a one on top through sales.
The chief executive added on www.qpr.co.uk: “There are two pools: this is what you have and everything else is based on player sales.
“It’s the easiest thing in the world is to bring a player in - the hardest is to get rid of the players you want moved on.
“It’s like it hasn’t worked out for us - but it’s holding up something else happening for us.”
