Chamakh reveals that he believes his fellow Moroccan, Taarabt, will be a huge star for Premier League-bound Championship top dogs Queens Park Rangers next season.
"He's a really good mate. We see each other every day!" said Chamakh.
"He's also an incredibly talented player for his age. Queens Park Rangers was a wise choice, because it gave him both playing time and serenity.
"He's their captain and faces up to the task. If he carries on like he is, he can become a star."
