QPR chief executive Philip Beard insists reports linking the club with moves for Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand are "pure speculation".
Following QPR's Championship play-off final victory over Derby on Saturday, Harry Redknapp's side have been linked with both players, who are out of contract this summer.
But Beard maintains the club have scheduled talks for Friday to finalise their list of transfer targets.
"We're used to it at QPR now. We're linked with everybody, so it's no surprise," Beard told Sky Sports.
"They are fantastic players, I'm sure Frank Lampard, at the moment, is worried about a certain tournament in Brazil.
"Anything you're going to read over the next few days is pure speculation. Tony [Fernandes, QPR owner] is in London, the other owners are either in London or have travelled back to different parts of the world.
"We've arranged to talk on Friday. That's when we're going to sit down with Harry and with some of the scouts, we've got lists of players, but I can promise you that anything you read at the moment is pure speculation."
