Arsenal playmaker target Adel Taarabt is being linked with a move to Serie 'A' as reports claim Lazio are keen on the Moroccan international.

The mercurial QPR midfielder was heavily linked with a switch to the Emirates in the summer, and confessed his interest in a move to north London at the time.

"I had contact with Arsenal and Chelsea, but it is a little muddled [difficult]," he said during the transfer window.

It was the second time Arsene Wenger had been mooted as an admirer of the player, as two months earlier the player proclaimed that he wished he'd joined the Gunners instead of Spurs as a teenager.

"I would have had a better chance at Arsenal. It was a mistake [joining Spurs]. I would progress with Arsene Wenger because he is one of the best managers in the world," said the player in April.

"I like the way Arsenal play. If Arsenal come, of course, I'll be very happy."

However, a move to the Emirates never materialised, and Corriere dello Sport now claim Lazio are confident of getting their man for a fee in the region of £10 million.


PSG were also thought to be keen on the player during the transfer window, but Neil Warnock managed to keep his prized asset at Loftus Road.

It remains unclear if Arsenal will challenge the Italian outfit for the player's signature should a move be instigated when the transfer window reopens.
