PSG target £13.5m Taarabt

The Morocco international shone for Rangers last season as they

landed the Championship title in impressive style. Much of their

best work came through Taarabt, as he plundered 19 goals in 44

appearances. Having matured into one of the most exciting creative

talents in the second tier, QPR were looking forward to unleashing

the 22-year-old in the Premier League. They are under no illusions,

however, that the highly-rated midfielder is going to attract

attention this summer. Numerous clubs have already been linked with

big-money approaches, with Taarabt fuelling the fire by claiming

that Chelsea and Arsenal are among those to have expressed an

interest. It is, however, French giants PSG who have made the first

formal approach. The Ligue 1 outfit are now backed by wealthy

Qatari investors and are expected to spend big this summer. They

have identified Taarabt as a top target and are now waiting on

Rangers’ response.
