Queens Park Rangers have opened talks with Auxerre about the possibility of signing Arsenal target Paul-Georges Ntep, reports the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old winger has been heavily linked with a move to England, after attracting attention from a number of different clubs, following a series of impressive performances in Ligue 2 this season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the France U21 international to the Emirates Stadium, and hoped that his close relationship with Auxerre would give them an advantage when it came to negotiations.

However, according to The Sun, the young forward is poised for a £5million transfer to QPR, with Championship boss Harry Redknapp keen to add him to his ranks at Loftus Road.

Auxerre have already received a £5million offer from Rennes for Ntep, but the player's representatives have made it clear that he'd prefer a move abroad.

The Cameroon-born star is well regarded for his electric pace and technical abilities, and has 13 goals in 47 league matches for Auxerre since 2010 - including seven in 17 league appearances in 2013/14.

Arsenal have previously signed Bacary Sagna, Abou Diaby and Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre, but with Wenger uncertain whether he needs another wide-man, could leave the door open for QPR.
