QPR boss Michael Beale is Wolverhampton Wanderers’ first choice to replace Bruno Lage.
The 42-year-old has impressed in his first managerial job and Wolves are believed to be making a move now, they say.
They hope Beale, who was Steven Gerrard’s assistant at Aston Villa before joining QPR in the summer, is in place for Sunday’s Leicester visit.
Beale is yet to take control of QPR for Wednesday night’s Cardiff visit. Rangers are sixth in the Sky Bet Championship, a point behind the top two.
Former boss Nuno Espirito Santo was a surprise candidate but Wolves progressed uninterested, while talks were also held with ex-coach Rob Edwards and former Lyon boss Peter Bosz.
Under-18s coach Steve Davis has been caretaker since Lage was sacked earlier this month. Wolves lost 2-1 at Crystal Palace on Tuesday to sit 17th in the Premier League.
