Sheffield Wednesday have made an approach for Massimo Luongo.
QPR are looking to sell the Australian midfielder, who has a year remaining on his contract.
Luongo, 26, has not been involved in Rangers’ pre-season campaign and there has been every expectation that he will leave Loftus Road this month.
After rumblings of interest among a number of clubs in the Championship and abroad, Wednesday have indicated that they want to do a deal ahead of Thursday’s deadline.
Luongo has made 145 league appearances for QPR since being signed from Swindon Town four years ago.
