The forward has played very little football this Premier League season and Rs fans have called for him to be involved more.
Taarabt has flattered to deceive when used, however, and his poor fitness has led boss Harry Redknapp to openly declare that he will be allowed to leave the west London club should a bid come in for him.

Meanwhile, QPR's new Head of Football Operations Les Ferdinand has given his views on the club's recent travails.
“As a player I have been there in that situation. I know it is tough to get out of but if everyone pulls together in the right direction you eventually get out of it.”
