The Npower Championship Player of the Year, Adel Taarabt has paved the way for a summer move to Liverpool after casting yet more doubt over his Queens Park Rangers future reports the Independent.
The Moroccan magician has become one of the hottest properties in Europe after almost single-handedly guiding the Loftus Road club to promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
With 19 goals and a number of match-winning performances throughout the season, Taarabt has been linked with a host of leading clubs all said to be vying for his signature.
Last week the Metro reported how Real Madrid were preparing to rival suitors Liverpool and Manchester United for the midfielder's signature, but Kenny Dalglish now looks to be heading the queue for the 21-year-old starlet.
Taarabt was linked with a move to the Red Devils before he joined QPR from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, and Sir Alex Ferguson has again been credited with an interest.
However, Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli – the man who first brought Taarabt to England in 2007 under his previous role at White Hart Lane, is also monitoring the situation.
And with the Reds seeking a creative spark in their midfield next season, a summer move to Anfield looks to be the most likely destination for Taarabt, with Liverpool and Comolli ready to pounce when the transfer window reopens in June.
When recently asked if QPR was a big enough club to fulfil his potential, Taarabt responded:
"I don't know, I did everything for the club this year. The manager told me 'it is up to you if you want to go, I won't stop you because you did everything for me, but I would be very happy if you stay for me'.
"So he gave me the choice – so I have the summer to think about it," concluded Taarabt.
With a rejuvenated Liverpool seemingly on the up under the stewardship of Dalglish, the Reds will be hoping that their club can provide the platform Taarabt craves to showcase his undoubted talent.
