Paris St Germain are determined to lure Moroccan footballing genius Adel Taarabt away from QPR.
After splashing the cash on French starlets Nicholas Douche and Pierre Putain, the French club PSG see the unpredictable Taarabt as the final piece in their attacking jigsaw.
With Brazilian Leonardo having taken up his position as sporting director at the Parc des Princes, PSG have had a bid of £12 million for Taarabt accepted by QPR owner Bernie Ecclestone.
Two of Adel Taarabt's agents have flown from Fez to Paris to negotiate personal terms for the 22 year old midfielder.
But the French Ligue 1 team seem to have a serious rival for Taarabt's affections, with rumours circulating that Italian giants AC Milan are also courting the mercurial Moroccan.
AC Milan, whose President Silvio Berlusconi is a friend of QPR's Director of Football Flavio Briatore, have tabled a deal to secure Taarabt's services with the option to loan him back to QPR for the coming season.
"This would give Adel the chance to prove himself in the Premier League and gain valuable experience before joining AC Milan permanently" said Berlusconi.
The newly married QPR ace has tweeted that he is tempted by the Milan connection but has declared his love for London and is happily settled in Shepherd's Bush.
Adel Taarabt, who is still on holiday in Marseilles, has asked to be excused from the gruelling pre-season training regime with QPR in an attempt to 'sort out his future'.
But as Harry Redknapp, who has a 30% sell on clause on the sale of Taarabt, has stated "It's not over till the fat lady sings."
Now Taarabt has told followers on Twitter that he is involved in 'intense negotiations' with Arsene Wenger to replace Barcelona bound Cesc Fabregas as Arsenal skipper.
Long suffering QPR manager Neil Warnock is resigned to losing the brilliant but temperamental talisman:
"We don't know which lucky club Adel is going to choose" said a stoical Warnock "but we are sure he will be back here in January when they find out what he is really like."
