Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar in transfer talks with QPR

QUEENS Park Rangers are believed to have entered talks to sign Inter Milan's Brazilian international goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

Julio Cesar was a key part of the Serie A side's Champions League win two years ago but now looks set to leave the San Siro.

Samir Handanovic arrived from Udinese this summer and Cesar has been allowed to speak to other clubs about a move.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with the 32-year-old but it is understood QPR are in talks with the goalkeeper, who has been capped 64 times by Brazil since he made his international debut in 2003.

The west Londoners' technical director Mike Rigg is speaking with Cesar's representatives to see whether a move to Loftus Road can be pushed through.

The news comes just days after summer signing Rob Green's blunder set Swansea on course for a surprise 5-0 victory at QPR.

The defeat also saw manager Mark Hughes step up his search for defensive reinforcements, and talks with Tottenham club captain Michael Dawson and Real Madrid's Ricardo Carvalho are understood to be ongoing, although reports suggest the move for Dawson has stalled.

QPR have been the most active Premier League club in this summer's transfer window, bringing eight new players - including Manchester United's Park Ji-sung and Fabio as well as former Chelsea man Jose Bosingwa, to Loftus Road.
