Stamford Bridge outfit chase Moroccan international.
Chelsea are expected to join the chase this summer for QPR forward Adel Taarabt.
The 21-year-old Morocco international, who has two years left on his contract, looks set to leave Loftus Road in the summer even if Rangers win promotion to the Premier League and would command an asking price of around £8million.

Given that former Tottenham youngster Adel Taarabt had to step down a division to keep his career on track it would be quite some turn around if the 21 year old found himself at Stamford Bridge. The talented playmaker has been a huge success at Loftus Road and is a big part of the reason that the West London side looks likely to be heading to the Premier League.
Carlo Ancelotti has been looking at signings that help the long term growth of the club and help reverse the ageing nature of the Blues squad and a move for Taarabt may handily cover both bases. Since his move to QPR, after a season long loan last term, the former Lens man has not looked back.
So far this season the attacking midfielder has netted 15 times and is also the Championship’s leading assist maker with another 15 and he could well be a useful addition to Chelsea’s squad. However will Taarabt look to leave QPR after helping the club back into the top tier? Clearly the urge to join the Premier League champions would be hard to turn down but would he get regular first team football at Stamford Bridge?
There has been constant speculation that Chelsea may look to offload some of the more senior players with the likes of Florent Malouda, Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba and Paulo Ferreira all linked with exits from the club.
