Promoted side Queens Park Rangers are reportedly keen on adding attacking options by bringing in Saint-Etienne hitman Mevlut Erding, claims football agent Willie McKay.
The 27-year-old, who represented France until the Under-19, but opted to play for Turkey in the Under-21 and eventually the seniors, produced 12 goals and 4 assists in 23 starts for the Greens in the Ligue 1, while making an impressive follow-up this term by finding the back of the net thrice in their first two games.
Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp (R) walks onto the pitch with Hull City manager Steve Bruce before their English Premier League soccer match at Loftus Road in London August 16, 2014.
"Erding is probably one of the most in-form strikers in Europe having scored three goals in the opening two games after ending last season in prolific form,Erding is probably one of the most in-form strikers in Europe having scored three goals in the opening two games after ending last season in prolific form," McKay told Sky Sports.
"I am not surprised that he is attracting interest from a number of clubs and QPR are one club who have expressed an interest."
"Erding is available for around £7million and at the age of 27 he could prove to be a real bargain for someone in the Premier League as I am sure he would score goals in England."
