Taarabt eyes permanent Milan move

The 24-year-old has scored twice in the seven league matches he has played since he joined the Rosseneri on loan in January and says he is happy in Italy.

Adel Taarabt says he wants to make his loan move to AC Milan permanent and said his agent is already in talks over a deal.

The Moroccan is currently on loan at the San Siro outfit from QPR and could reportedly make a switch to the Italian capital for 7 million euros at the end of the season.

Following Milan's 3-0 win against Chievo on Saturday, Taarabt said the wheels are already in motion over a move.

"My agent is already talking to Milan, as I am very happy here," he is quoted as telling Mediaset. "I have played in important games, I really like Italy and I want to stay with Milan.

"It was a negative period for Milan after the Champions League exit, but with the draw at Lazio everything changed. Europa League qualification is an objective above all for the fans, but we must take it one game at a time."
