QPR are set to pull off the transfer coup of Estudiantes striker Duvan Zapata.

The London Evening Standard says QPR are closing in on a remarkable £6.4m deal for Estudiantes striker Zapata.

The 22-year-old was also wanted by West Ham United earlier this summer.

They will need to apply for a work permit for the Colombian, who is expected to be part of their World Cup squad next summer and hope one will be granted under the ‘special talent’ rule.
