Queens Park Rangers are eyeing a loan move for Iceland winger Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, the Sun reports (Friday edition, page 57).

Bodvarsson started all five of his country's Euro 2016 matches, scoring in their final group game against Austria and providing an assist in their shock last-16 win against England.

And that appears to have alerted R's boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who is in need of more wide options after seeing Matt Phillips sold to West Brom and Junior Holiett depart at the end of his contract.

Bodvarsson scored twice and made three assists for German side Kaiserslautern last season, having joined from Viking Stavanger in January.

Pleasingly, the 24-year-old can also play up front and stands at an imposing 6 ft 3 ins tall.

Despite raking in close to £10 million through the sales of Phillips and Leroy Fer and shedding a number of high-earners on free transfers, Hasselbaink has operated economically so far.

And the Dutchman has looked overseas once already in what is his first pre-season at Loftus Road, acquiring Legia Warsaw midfielder Ariel Boysiuk for an undisclosed fee.
