Anfield director of football hopes to reunite with Moroccan international.
Liverpool are reportedly readying a bid for QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt as Kenny Dalglish looks to bring in youthful additions to his Anfield squad this summer. The Moroccan international had an excellent season at Loftus Road last term helping Neil Warnock’s side to the Championship title and is now the subject of great interest from a number of clubs both in the Premier League and from the continent.
The 22 year old former Lens man is a player that Liverpool’s director of football Damien Comolli knows well having brought the precocious talent to Tottenham during his stint at White Hart Lane. The French talent spotter now hopes to lure the playmaker to Merseyside.
QPR boss Warnock has stated his concern that the West London side will not be able to keep hold of such a talented individual and with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and a number of La Liga sides said to be interested the Super Hoops may struggle to keep Taarabt at the club.
Taarabt had two loan spells at QPR whilst at Tottenham and was signed on a permanent basis last summer for a fee of around £2.5m and it is believed that Liverpool are willing to offer three times that amount as an opening bid.
Liverpool’s new owners are willing to make substantial moves in the transfer market this summer as they look to take the club back into the top four and are looking to bring in players with great potential and Taarabt may well be tempted by a move to the club.
On Friday Taarabt sensationally stated his intention to quit international football after falling out with Moroccan coach Eric Gerets, this development would make the QPR man even more of an attractive asset as this would mean he would not take part in the African Nations Cup Next January and February.
Last season Taarabt notched up 16 assists and 19 goals and was named Football League Player of the Year.
