QPR have completed the signing of striker Macauley Bonne from Charlton for an undisclosed fee.
Bonne, who turns 25 later this month, has signed a three-year contract.
Rangers are now looking to tie up the signing of Albert Adomah on a permanent deal.
Adomah, a Rangers fan, is seeking a financial settlement to leave Nottingham Forest, where he is in the final year of his contract.
That would pave the way for a return to west London for the former Harrow Borough winger, who will turn 33 in November.
Rangers want to bring in at least one winger and are interested in Andre Green, who is a free agent after recently leaving Aston Villa, but Adomah is the priority.
QPR chasing pre-deadline deals
Discussions have also been held about a potential deal to sign former Arsenal youngster Chris Willock, who is keen to return to England from Benfica,
Willock is a possible option but reports in Portugal suggesting a deal has been agreed for him to join the R’s are wide of the mark.
Rangers would land a seasoned Championship player if they complete a deal to sign Adomah.
After impressing at Harrow Borough, he was picked up by Barnet in 2008 and had spells at Bristol City, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa before signing for Forest last year.
He quickly fell out of favour at the City Ground and spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City.
Adomah has previously bemoaned QPR’s failure to sign him, saying: “Ask the scouts. I’m a local boy and played on the Astroturf pitch next door.”
Speaking after scoring twice against them at Loftus Road for Aston Villa in 2017, he said: “I’m a QPR fan. That’s why I didn’t really want to jump for joy when I scored.
“QPR are a very strong team – obviously I know that because I follow them.
“The majority of my friends, especially the local ones, support QPR.”
