Queens Park Rangers have opened talks with Hull City to sign highly-rated player Ahmed Elmohamady, according to HITC.
The London side are keen to enforce a deal for the Egyptian international who was part of Egypt’s 2008 and 2010 African Cup of Nations winning sides.
The versatile player has become a fan favourite at Hull City, but could be making the move south if a deal is to be completed between the two Sky Bet Championship sides.
QPR are aiming for a promotion push this season and Chris Ramsey is keen to bolster his squad as the season moves into full swing. However, Hull City are also aiming to be promoted straight back to the Premier League and are likely to be reluctant to sell any of their star players.
The 27-year-old has made 130 appearances for Hull City and has been a key player for the side both in the Championship and the Premier League – he is a player of real quality and will be a great acquisition for any Championship side looking towards the upper-end of the table.
However, the R’s are looking to gain the services of Elmohamady, whilst it has been suggested that the player is open to a move to Loftus Road.
There are significant questions being raised about the deal being hindered by work-permit issues, but if a permit is granted, Elmohamady is likely to be offered a long-term deal for the London side looking to jump straight back into the Premier League.
If QPR star Matt Phillips is granted a move to West Bromwich Albion, then a move for Elmohamady will become even more likely as Ramsey will be keen to fill the void left by the winger.
What remains clear is that interest is significant for the Egyptian and that a move could happen before 6pm today when the transfer window close.
