According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, QPR have made a move to sign Juventus defender Hordur Magnusson on a permanent basis.

The R's are expecting a big summer as manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink gets to work in his summer transfer window with the club, and he'll be looking to mould his own squad having arrived from Burton Albion back in December 2015.

Now, it appears that one particular target has emerged for Hasselbaink, with centre back Hordur Magnusson believed to be on QPR's radar.

Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio reports that QPR have spoken to Juventus about a deal for the defender, with the intention of signing him to a permanent deal this summer.

Magnusson, 23, has been on the books at Juventus since joining from Fram in 2011, but has still yet to make a first-team appearance for the Italian giants, having been farmed out on loan to other Italian clubs Spezia and Cesena.

After two years on loan at Cesena, Magnusson is back at Juventus, but appears to have little future with the club - and the 6ft 3in centre back, who can also play at left back, could end up at Loftus Road if Hasselbaink gets hi wishes.

Magnusson will be on show at the European Championships in France this summer, as he is in the Iceland squad as they look to spring a surprise and get out of a tough group.

The QPR target will be facing Portugal, Hungary and Austria, and will be hoping to put himself in the shop window for a big summer move - but at the same time, QPR will be hoping that they can get a deal done quickly to avoid losing out on Magnusson.
