Emirates star wants to join Loftus Road friends and kick start career in England.
Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock is hopeful of bringing £12million-rated Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh to Loftus Road this summer.
The 27-year-old has had a mixed first season in English football, following a successful start he has struggled to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.
The Moroccan international has scored seven goals in 26 league games but has seen his status fall behind Robin van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner in the Gunners’ pecking order.
Sources from inside QPR say both sides are keen on the deal with boss Warnock keen to add firepower to his squad and Chamakh happy to join up with international team-mate Adel Taarabt.
The two friends are often seen out together in London and would love to link up on the pitch as well as off it.
Warnock believes Chamakh would be a great addition as he aims to keep QPR in the Premier League.
Rangers secured top flight status for the first time in 15 years last Saturday but celebrations could be delayed until after the Football Association’s verdict on the Alejandro Faurlin case.
The club is being investigated over allegations of irregularities into his transfer in 2009 from Argentinian club Instituto de Cordoba, which could lead to a points deduction.
