QPR have agreed a £1.75m fee with Anderlecht for forward Idrissa Sylla.
The Guinean international is expected in London on Tuesday for his medical.
The 25-year-old Sylla has been capped 22 times by Guinea and was a member of the squad at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
At club level, he began his career in France with Le Mans and Bastia (on loan), before moving to Zulte Waregem in Belgium, and then Anderlecht, who signed him in February of 2015.
QPR have made a relatively promising start to the Sky Bet Championship season and lie fifth with three wins from their first five wins.
However, half of their eight goals have come from the penalty spot and it is no surprise that manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is looking for extra depth in the attacking positions.
If the Sylla deal goes through he will provide Hasselbaink with an extra option alongside the likes of Seb Polter and Conor Washington.
