The 23-year-old has just one year remaining on his existing deal and has yet to agree terms with the Loftus Road side.
Rather than lose their defensive stalwart on a free transfer, the London outfit plan to cash-in on him if talks continue to fail.
R's chief executive David Davies admitted the club will have little choice but to sell him if a common ground cannot be reached.
"I have been talking to Clarke's representatives with a view to extending his current deal which has one season to run," explained Davies to the club's official website.
"We've been in discussions for a number of weeks but it's fair to say that the negotiations have stalled for the time being.
"The club has offered to extend Clarke's current deal on the same terms, but we cannot find common ground with his advisers right now.
"Consequently we have no choice but to listen to any offers that come in for him, at least until if and when we can sort out a new deal for Clarke."
