Boy wonder: QPR plot £3.5m swoop for Young Boys of Bern striker Mayuka

The 21-year-old frontman has been a regular scorer for clubs in Israel and Switzerland and for the Zambia national team

QPR are ready to snap up Zambia international striker Emmanuel Mayuka from Swiss side Young Boys of Bern.

Hoops boss Hughes will try to do a £3.5million deal for the 21-year-old, who has found the net on a regular basis for club and country since leaving his homeland in 2008.

Bern will sell if the price is right, leaving the west Londoners to obtain work permit for Mayuka, who moved to Switzerland in 2010 following a two-year spell at Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv.

That should not be a problem as the 5ft 9in frontman has played 36 times for Zambia in serious competition, scoring 10 goals.
