Championship duo Queens Park Rangers and Fulham are stepping up their interest in Ostersunds striker Saman Ghoddos, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

The two English clubs are expected to watch Ghoddos in action in Thursday's Europa League clash with Athletic Bilbao as they weigh up moves for the free-scoring forward.

Ghoddos has scored four goals in eight Europa League games so far this season, helping Ostersunds progress through from the qualifying rounds to the group stages.

Ghoddos has also caught the eye in the Swedish Allsvenskan this season this season with 15 goals and nine assists in 29 games in all competitions for Ostersunds.

Clubs from all Europe have been alerted to Ghoddos' prolific form and Ostersunds managed to reject several offers for the player during the summer transfer window.

QPR have held a long-term interest in Ghoddos and they saw a bid rejected for the 24-year-old turned down in the summer.

Ian Holloway's men have continued to keep tabs on Ghoddos and they are ready to rekindle their interest in the Iran star when the transfer window opens in January.

Fulham are ready to rival QPR for Ghoddos with Slavisa Jokanovic determined to bolster their attacking options at Craven Cottage after a disappointing start to the season.
