Adel Taarabt: Claims to be attracting interest, but says he would like to stay at Loftus Road
Adel Taarabt is looking to open talks regarding a contract extension at Queens Park Rangers, with it his desire to take in a prolonged stay at Loftus Road.
The Morocco international appeared destined to be on his way out of the club last summer, as talk of big-money moves elsewhere dominated the transfer window.
Ambitious French outfit Paris St Germain were reported to be keen, with offers believed to have been put on the table.
No deal was struck, though, and Taarabt spent the 2011/12 campaign battling for Premier League survival with QPR.
He struggled to produce the kind of form he displayed in helping QPR back into the top-flight, with Neil Warnock and Mark Hughes overlooking him at times.
It was suggested that he may look to move on this summer, with there no shortage of interest in his services.
Taarabt admits he has been targeted by a number of sides, with only 12 months left to run on his current contract, but insists he would be happy to agree fresh terms with his current employers.
"I want to stay at QPR," the 23-year-old playmaker said in the Daily Mirror.
"I have received offers from other Premier League clubs, but my deal is signed until June 2013 and I want to increase the contract.
"My agent has a document from the club about their long-term project, and it's very interesting to me."
