Lazio are stepping up their interest in QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has received glowing reports on the Morocco international, who won this season's Championship Player of the Year.

Taarabt has been linked with Borussia Dortmund this week and the player, himself, claims interest from Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Lotito is putting together a deal to tempt QPR into selling their star man this summer.
