QPR are desperate to find a new destination for Adel Taarabt.

The midfielder spent last season on-loan at AC Milan, but terms could not be struck over a fee for an outright deal.

Taarabt remains hopeful of returning to Italy, but the Milan track has dried up.

Tuttosport says Inter Milan have also been contacted about taking Taarabt off QPR's hands, but the response was negative.

The midfielder was not in QPR's squad for defeat at Tottenham yesterday.
