Loftus Road star set for Ligue 1 switch?
Skysports.com understands QPR are close to agreeing a fee for the sale of Adel Taarabt after Paris St Germain increased their bid to £15million.
The star playmaker, whose 19 goals last season helped Rangersto the Championship title and Premier League promotion, has been heavily linked with a move to the Ligue 1 giants.
The French side were thought to have previously tabled a £13.5m offer for the 22-year-old Morocco international, which the London club turned down.
But it appears after upping that bid to £15m PSG are closing in on their man.
The former Tottenham midfielder has also been linked to Chelsea and Arsenal, but Warnock has made no secret of the fact he is keen to return to France, where he previously played with boyhood club Lens and where his family resides.

Throughout the summer QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt has been linked with a move away from Loftus Road and Super Hoops boss Neil Warnock seems resigned to losing the 22 year old and a move to PSG will look even more attractive now that The Qatar Foundation have taken over at Parc des Princes and with former Inter Milan boss Leonardo at the helm it seems the Parisian side may well challenge for the Ligue 1 title and Champions League qualification.
Taarabt had a remarkable season last term, netting 19 goals and 16 assists to help QPR to the Championship title but seems keen to leave the West London club this summer.
There had been reports that a number of Premier League sides are also keen on the Moroccan international but the former Tottenham man seems to be keen on a move back to France where he previously represented Lens.
If QPR lose a player of Taarabt’s undoubted quality then they may struggle to retain their status in the English top tier.
