FORMER Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen is on Queens Park Rangers’ wanted list.

Former Ibrox boss Mark Warburton is an admirer of the Norwegian who is surplus to requirements at Scott Parker’s Fulham who will listen to offers for the international in this transfer window.

Johansen, who quit the Hoops to join the Craven Cottage outfit in a £1.2million switch in the summer of 2016 shortly after Brendan Rodgers’ arrival, has slipped down the Londoners’ pecking order and has not figured in their Premier League squad this season.

The 30-year-old playmaker has made 142 appearances for the club and is under contract until June next year.

Johansen spent the second half of the 2018/19 campaign on loan at West Brom, but returned ahead of the following season and played 33 times in the Championship as Fulham won promotion back to the top flight via the play-offs.

Neil Lennon brought the player to Glasgow in January 2014 after striking a £2million with Stromsgodset gaffer Ronny Deila, who, of course, succeeded the Irishman as Parkhead manager later that year.

Suggestions Johansen may be on the Hoops’ radar are wide of the mark and his future could be decided within the next few days with a move across the city.
