Sky Sports understands Brighton could be ready to offer Jay Bothroyd the opportunity to play first-team football.
The forward joined QPR last summer on a free transfer from Cardiff but could manage just two Premier League goals for the club.
The 30-year-old England international finds himself surplus to requirements at Loftus Road following a remarkable spending spree.
And Bothroyd may welcome the opportunity to be the target-man for Gus Poyet's ambitious side.
The left-footed striker has pedigree at Championship level having scored 18 goals for Cardiff in the 2010-11 season.
