Newly appointed QPR boss Mark Hughes is on the verge of landing one of Brazil’s brightest young talents in striker Henrique, the Daily Mail claims.
The highly-rated striker is said to be on the verge of an initial 18-month loan deal with a view to a £5 million permanent transfer.
The player – who was voted player of the tournament at last years U-20 World Cup – has caught the attention of a number of European clubs, but QPR owner Tony Fernandes looks to have won the race for the exciting striker.
Fernandes will be keen to add to his squad to ensure Mark Hughes has all the necessary tools to avoid relegation, and the signing of Henrique could signal the start of a flurry of new signings at QPR.
Henrique is said to be looking forward to working with the project at Loftus Road and, subject to a work permit, should arrive in London to finalise the deal soon.
The promising striker scored five goals at last year’s U-20 World Cup in Colombia, and with QPR jumping ahead of the queue for the Brazilian’s signature, this could prove to be an incredible coup for the ambitious London club.
