Liverpool eye Taarabt-Cole swap deal

Liverpool are planning a move for QPR star Adel Taarabt, and are willing to offer Joe Cole in a cash-plus-player exchange deal, according to reports in the Metro.

Taarabt, 21, has been a major factor in the promotion chase for Neil Warnock’s side, since his £700,000 move from Tottenham, and has 19 goals in 44 league appearances this season, helping QPR to the Championship title.

His performances have attracted interest from Premier League clubs, and Reds manager Kenny Dalglish is thought to be looking for another player similar to Ashley Young, with a view to developing the player for the long-term, and the Moroccon international fits these criteria.

Liverpool are also keen to offload last seasons Summer signing Joe Cole, who has failed to establish himself at the club. Cole is thought to favour a move to London, however an arrangement involving Liverpool paying a share of the players’ wages is likely to be necessary due to his current £90,000 weekly earnings.
