Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers are closing in on the signing of Plymouth striker Jamie Mackie.
Plymouth are resigned to losing Mackie following their relegation from the Championship.
A number of clubs, including Sheffield United, Derby and Barnsley have all been credited with an interest in Mackie, but QPR are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by luring him to Loftus Road.
Rangers boss Neil Warnock is keen to bolster his squad for next season and he has made striking reinforcements one of his top priorities.
Mackie who scored eight goals last season for Plymouth, is keen to resolve his future and QPR are hopeful of securing his signature ahead of their Championship rivals.
