Championship sides QPR and Wolves have agreed a fee of €1.8million for the 24-year-old, but the player is thought to prefer a move to the Premier League, and the Clarets could come up trumps if they move quickly.

Ngbakoto has been with Metz since 2007, and has represented France at Under 17 and Under 18 level, previously attracting interest from Spurs and Chelsea, as well as Barcelona.

He can also play as a central striker.
