Queens Park Rangers are set to sign Mainz striker Sebastian Polter, reports Get West London.
His coach at Mainz, Christian Heidel, has revealed that the player is “very likely” to be signing for the Hoops this summer.
“Sebastian will not come back to Mainz,” before adding it was ‘very likely’ he’d join QPR” said Heidel.
The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the German club and spent last season on loan at second division side FC Union Berlin, where he scored 14 goals.
Berlin had been hoping of signing Polter on a permanent deal but the striker turned down their advances.
The former Germany under-21 international started his career at Wolfsburg before joining Mainz in 2013. He once played in goal during a match and made a decent save from a free-kick.
Rangers are resigned to losing Charlie Austin this summer and are looking for strikers to fill the void.
Get West London understands QPR will be spending just over £1m to bring Polter to Loftus Road.
