QPR eye Moses, Diakite and Onouha as new boss Hughes makes his mark

QPR are launching bids to sign Wigan's Victor Moses and Nancy midfielder Samba Diakit.

Discussions regarding Moses took place on Tuesday. The Nigeria international has been one of the few bright spots for Roberto Martinez's strugglers this season.

However, talks over an improved contract for the 21-year-old have hit the buffers casting doubt over his long-term future and Hughes is keen to take advantage by signing the talented forward this month.

Diakite is a defensive midfielder who has been monitored by Arsenal, Udinese and Marseille.

The Mali international is part of his country's African Nations squad but is set to fly in to London for talks ahead of a 3.5million deal which will possibly be a loan at first.

Udinese were ready to offer 4m for the 23-year-old who was born and raised in France yet chose to play for Mali and QPR hope there are no work permit issues similar to that encountered with Brazilian striker Henrique.

Hughes expects Nedum Onuoha's move from Manchester City to be finalised after he agreed personal terms after the clubs agreed a 2.75m fee plus add-ons.

He also maintains an interest in Tottenham's Steven Pienaar although Tottenham have asked for 6m.
