Sky Sports revealed on Friday that the 25-year-old frontman has spent time training with each club, and caught the eye at Loftus Road and at Elland Road.
Habibou is eager to test himself in England, and at the highest possible level.
The African ace is keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to where he might end up, but concedes that a deal could soon be put in place.
No move is expected to be made during the January transfer window, but a pre-contract agreement is likely to be put in place.
"I am talking with a club in England but nothing is decided yet," said Habibou.
"I am still open to discussion.
"I would love to play in England and my first choice is to move to England."
