Chelsea Plan January Move to Sign QPR Attacker Adel Taarabt

Stamford Bridge side linked with interest in Loftus Road attacker who is very much style over substance.

Italian source CalcioMercato claim that Chelsea are interested in QPR flair player Adel Taarabt.

There is no denying the raw talent Moroccan international Taarabt possesses but as was all to evident on the weekend the 23 year old is in many ways a luxury player who so rarely delivers. The former Tottenham man is very much an example of style over substance.

For all the tricks and turns there is very little end product and as evidenced in QPR’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday, the QPR man gives the ball away far too frequently and is repeatedly guilty of over-egging the pudding with one to many twist or turn.

Factor in that Chelsea have a host of players of a similar style to Taarabt, but ten times more reliable and effective, and a move for the Loftus Road man just looks incredibly pointless.

Given that the Blues have the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar, why would they entertain the possibility of signing Adel Taarabt? This rumour can probably be consigned to the ‘Never going to happen’ pile.
