The 27-year-old, who joined Latics last summer from Barnsley for £2.5million, took his tally for the season to nine with a brace against Hull City last week.

And it's thought the bid from QPR is in the region of that amount, according to sources in the north west.

Moore was the subject of an unsuccessful bid of around £2million in January from Cardiff, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Bluebirds come back in with renewed interest.

Preston North End, too, have been strongly linked with Moore, although their manager Alex Neil played down suggestions of an imminent bid over the weekend.

"It's speculation, we get linked to players all the time," Neil said.

"I think that's just naturally because we're getting closer to the transfer window.

"This isn't a conversation that we've had for the last couple of months, but the window opens in 11 days.

"Wigan are in administration, so his agent will be doing what his agent should be doing."
