Italian giants show interest in player who is very much surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.
Reports are claiming that Tottenham’s Adel Taarabt was watched by Juventus and Barcelona scouts on Tuesday night.
The Moroccan ace was inspirational in loan side QPR’s 2-0 win over Plymouth, which moved boss Neil Warnock to later claim that he was the right manager to get the best out of his mercurial talent.
Taarabt is in the last 18 months of his White Hart Lane contract and looks set to be moved on by Spurs manager Harry Redknapp who grew frustrated with him last season. (Eat Sleep Sport)
20 year old Moroccan Adel Taarabt had such an astounding start to his White Hart Lane career that no one could have predicted that by early 2010 he would find himself farmed out on a season long loan to a Championship outfit with seemingly no chance of a way back into the Tottenham first team picture, but nonetheless that is where we are.
Having burst onto the scene with two great cameo appearances against West Ham and Chelsea Adel suffered as the north London side stuttered from one manager to another and Harry Redknapp effectively ended any hope of the attacker making it at Spurs when he allowed him to start his second spell at Loftus Road, where he has been a big success.
It’s a little surprising to see Juventus are showing an interest in the youngster but perhaps they see something in Taarabt that Harry doesn’t. Either way I would imagine that Redknapp would take any decent offer that is made by the Serie A outfit or anyone else. The player himself appears very keen to end his White Hart Lane nightmare and perhaps he would flourish in Italy or else prove that the Tottenham boss was right to allow him to leave the club.
