Milan close to signing Championship star on permanent deal

QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt wants to make his move to AC Milan permanent, reports

The 24-year-old was sent on loan to the Serie A side back in January, where has scored two goals from seven league appearances. And the Moroccan, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Fulham, as confirmed his agent is in talks with  the Rosseneri: “My agent is already talking to Milan, as I am very happy here,” said Taarabt.

“I have played in important games, I really like Italy and I want to stay with Milan. It was a negative period for Milan after the Champions League exit, but with the draw at Lazio everything changed. Europa League qualification is an objective above all for the fans, but we must take it one game at a time.”

Taarabt has been sent away from Loftus Road since QPR were relegated from the Premier League. The Hoops are currently third in the Championship table. But regardless of whether Rangers get promoted back to England’s top flight, the midfielder has set his sights on a permanent stay at the San Siro.

Milan could have to spend €7million to sign the Moroccan, who lit up Loftus Road with his trickery, but failed to win over many fans with his seemingly lazy attitude without the ball.
