Striker Henrique keen on QPR move

Brazilian striker Henrique has said he is desperate to complete his proposed move to QPR.

Rangers are trying to thrash out an agreement for the 20-year-old Sao Paulo player, who is likely to move on an initial loan deal – if he obtains a work permit.

Hughes has impressed Henrique.

His signing would be a coup for new R’s boss Mark Hughes, as Henrique has attracted interest from numerous European clubs since starring in last year’s Under-20 World Cup.

“I know a lot of clubs are interested in me. But when I spoke to Mark Hughes and QPR, they made me feel very excited about their plans,” Henrique told The Sun.

“I want to go to a club with ambition and to play in London would be a fantastic opportunity.

“The manager is known everywhere. He played for great clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona.

“As a striker, I know I can learn so much from him. I’ve always wanted to play in Europe, and England has the most exciting league in the world.”
