QPR are looking to continue their spending spree by luring midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung away from Celtic in a £6 million deal.
Hoops owner Tony Fernandes has been splashing the cash already this summer and is looking to crack the commercial market in the Far East, according to the Mirror.
The classy midfielder would link up with fellow countryman Park Ji-Sung, who made the move to London from Manchester last month. QPR are keen to get the deal done as soon as possible and would be offering the player a lucrative contract.
Celtic would prefer to wait and see if they qualify for the Champions League until they make a decision, but the £6m offer could prove to be too tempting. Talks between the clubs have begun and are set to conclude soon, with Celtic boss Neil Lennon needing a straight answer and the cash for a replacement.
The 23-year old is a regular for his national side and the chance to hook up with former Manchester United hero Park would work on and off the pitch, as the QPR board look to make inroads throughout Asia.
Known for his vision, technique, long range passing, shooting and impressive set pieces, Ki is widely regarded as one of the top young South Korean football prospects.
If Mark Hughes gets Ki it will be a further blow to misfit Joey Barton who begins a 12-game ban at the start of the season and is available to go out on loan for a bargain rate.
