Sky Sports sources understand Manchester City have rejected enquires from Juventus and Galatasaray for out-of-favour midfielder Nigel de Jong.
De Jong has fallen down manager Roberto Mancini's pecking order at City, losing his starting spot to the likes of Gareth Barry, Yaya Toure and James Milner.
The Dutchman has 18 months remaining on his contract at Ethiad Stadium and is yet to negotiate a new deal.
Serie A leaders Juve and Turkish giants Galatasaray have both made approaches but City have knocked back their enquiries.
QPR are also thought to be targeting the 27-year-old, who arrived in Manchester from Hamburg in 2009.
He has made just eight Premier League appearances for City this season and was an unused substitute in Sunday's 3-2 triumph at home to Tottenham.
