QPR are interested in highly-rated Uruguayan youngster Kevin Mendez.
The 18-year-old striker, who plays for Penarol in his homeland, shone at the Under-17 World Cup last year.
Many European clubs, including Chelsea, have been monitoring Mendez.
Liverpool were recently linked with a move for him and Paris St-Germain decided against making an offer following talks with his representatives.
Those representatives are keen for the player to secure a move to Europe and the potential deal is one of several being followed up by QPR chairman Tony Fernandes ahead of the start of the new season.
Fernandes is also looking to agree the signing of Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer.
West London Sport revealed this week that Rangers have had a bid for the Netherlands midfielder, 24, rejected but are considering making an improved offer.
