Sao Paulo's Henrique closing in on QPR move

Sao Paulo youngster Henrique is very close to a move to QPR according to recent reports.

The 20-year old Brazilian striker is set to join the R's on an 18-month loan deal with the option of making it permanent and has revealed that new boss Mark Hughes was a huge influence on him making the shift to West London.

"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," he 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, for me, England has the most exciting league in the world."
