QPR boss says Chelsea, Arsenal target Taarabt could return to France

QPR manager Neil Warnock has revealed that star midfielder Adel Taarabt could quite possibly head back to France to continue his career.

The R’s skipper and Morocco international has recently been linked with London clubs Chelsea and Arsenal but Warnock says if he was to leave Loftus Road it would more than likely be to France so he can be closer to his family.

“He is missing his family in Marseille," Warnock told the London Evening Standard. "If we get a big offer from a club in France that obviously gives him a chance to be closer to them. That would be a big pull.

"PSG have made an enquiry and they obviously offer him the chance to be nearer to home, although there is a Spanish club being mentioned as well.

"As far as his talk of wanting to go to Chelsea or Arsenal, I know he has a lot of friends at Arsenal.

"Flavio Briatore [QPR's co-owner] is dealing with the negotiations. He is keeping me informed of the situation and at this precise moment he won't be leaving because no one has met the asking price."
