The club from the French capital spent heavily in the summer and are now looking to QPR’s playmaker Taarabt to further strengthen their squad.
The club are lining up a bid of around £20 million for the Moroccan international, a fee they believe the West London club will find hard to resist.
In the summer QPR rejected a bid of around £15 million, however PSG now hope that a bid of around £14 million with incentives of up to around £6 million will be too good to refuse for a player that has failed to perform up to expectations thus far this season.
As well as PSG, Italian club Napoli are allegedly weighing up a bid for the player, however they are unlikely to be able to match PSG’s spending power.
PSG, now under ownership by Qatar Investment Authority, are looking to re-emerge as a force in both French and European football and alongside Taarabt the club are looking to sign David Beckham from LA Galaxy.
It remains to be seen whether Taarabt himself wants to leave the club, with the player stating that it is entirely the clubs decision, ‘I am prepared for any event in January but the decision depends on QPR.’
