Reports are out claiming that Arsenal are eyeing QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt.
The Mirror revealed that Taarabt is the shock name on Arsenal’s transfer hit-list for January.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants two forwards in the transfer window.
Arsenal will bid £7million for Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and the England Under-21 winger is their No.1 priority.
But they have checked out Taarabt, 23, who has a reputation as a skilful but frustrating wide player since his move to QPR from Arsenal’s local rivals Tottenham.
It is likely that Arsenal are looking at the Moroccan in case Zaha cannot be lured away from South London.
