Manchester United striker Federico Macheda is a reported target for Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock.
According to the Daily Star, Warnock is keen to bring the Italian to Loftus Road in January in order to bolster his strikeforce.
Macheda is likely to be allowed to leave Old Trafford on a temporary basis by Sir Alex Ferguson having made only one appearance this season.
The 20-year-old was required to play out of position against Leeds in the Carling Cup, and could now be given a fresh challenge in west London when the transfer window opens.
Although Macheda started his United career in fine style, he has since falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen are all ahead of Macheda in Ferguson's plans, so a loan move could a a genuine possibility.
Macheda spent the second half of last season with Sampdoria, but failed to find the net in 14 appearances.
