Mark Hughes is on the verge of making one of Brazil’s hottest prospects his first QPR signing after striker Henrique declared he’s heading for Loftus Road.

It is understood that the highly-rated 20-year-old Sao Paulo starlet will sign an initial 18-month loan deal with a view to a permanent £5million switch – subject to gaining a work permit.

Henrique – who was voted the Player of the Tournament at last summer’s FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Colombia – has been courted by a host of big club on the continent.

But Hughes appears to have one the race, in what could potentially prove to be a major coup for the Barclays Premier League strugglers, after Henrique revealed he is excited about QPR’s plans.

‘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,’ said Henrqiue, speaking to 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.’
