Queens Park Rangers will meet with Everton officials today to try to secure a £3.5million deal to sign Nikica Jelavic. At the same time, West Ham United are also very interested in signing the Croatian striker, but the Rs have the advantage of playing Everton today, which will make it easier for club officials to meet in private to try to finalize a deal.
Jelavic has made nine appearances for Everton so far this season, but hasn’t been able to get on the scoresheet. With the form of Romelu Lukaku, it looks even less likely that Jelavic will get much playing time, so a move to QPR or West Ham United looks likely for the striker to get regular first team football.
