Sky Sports revealed on Saturday that QPR may be willing to let the Morocco international leave on loan this summer.

They are understood to be reluctant on sanctioning a permanent deal, but could be persuaded to let Taarabt spend the 2013/14 campaign away from Loftus Road.

No formal approach for his services has been made as yet, but interest is expected to mount over the coming weeks.

A move to France has been mooted, with Marseille reported to be contemplating a move.

Taarabt hopes the Ligue 1 outfit will enter negotiations, with the 24-year-old claiming to have supported the club in his younger days.

He told Le Parisien: "The club of my heart? OM. I have not had a direct contact, but my friend Joey Barton has told everyone at the club about me.

"If OM want me, I'm going. My sisters still live in Marseille. This is the first club I supported."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
