Sky Sports understands Stoke are interested in taking QPR's out-of-favour DJ Campbell on loan for the rest of the season.
The 30-year-old enjoyed a fruitful season with Blackpool last term and, despite the Seasiders being relegated, was still able to plunder 14 goals in 35 appearances.
However, since signing for QPR in the summer he has found himself marginalised at Loftus Road and has not been able to make the same dynamic impact as last term.
Campbell has scored just once this campaign and, with Mark Hughes looking to reshape the squad, the former non-league striker could be a casualty of the new manager's vision.
Stoke were keen on taking the striker in the summer but that deal failed to materialise.
Tony Pulis has relied on Peter Crouch and Jon Walters to spearhead his side's attack this term.
Kenwyne Jones and Cameron Jerome have been used sparingly, however, the former has been linked with moves to Wolves and Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal.
