Socceroos star Matthew Leckie is being chased by Queens Park Rangers with the English Championship club considering making a bid for the FC Inglestodt star.

Rangers have money to spend after selling Matt Phillips to West Brom this week for STG5.5 million ($A9.5 million) and Leroy Fer to Swansea for STG4.5million ($A8.5 million).

They are also set to lose off-contract wideman Junior Hoillet who is yet to respond to a deal tabled to him last month and are on the hunt for a winger.

AAP understands contact has been made with the Bundesliga side Inglestodt about Leckie, who reluctantly want to cash-in on one of their star players before his contract winds down at the end of next year when he could walk away for free.

A report by West London Sport claims Leckie is one of three players QPR are looking at along with Metz winger Yeni Ngbakoto and Charlton's Jordan Cousins as they look to bolster their attack ahead of the new season which starts on August 7.

The former Adelaide United winger has been recomended to Rangers by Australian coach David Magrone, who is part of the club's scouting and player development department and was integral in Massimo Luongo's move from Swindon last year.
