QPR remain in hunt for Sao Paulo star Pato as Sampdoria circle

QPR remain in the hunt for Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato.

TMW says the former AC Milan forward hopes to return to Europe this month after rebuilding his career on-loan at Sao Paulo.

QPR are in contact, while Sampdoria and Sevilla are also keen.

Samp will step up their negotiations if they cannot get a deal for Everton striker Samuel Eto'o over the line.

Pato's camp are aware of QPR's interest and the idea of moving to the Premier League is attractive to the player.

QPR favour setting up a six-month loan deal for Pato with the option to sign him permanently should they stay up.
