Adel Taarabt has revealed it would be an ‘honour’ to play for AC Milan and their new manager, Clarence Seedorf.
It is reported the Moroccan attacking midfielder reportedly arrived in Italy ahead of a potential loan move to the Rossonieri. Taarabt would be the second Premier League signing of new manager Clarence Seedorf after he also lured veteran midfielder, Michael Essien, to San Siro.
The 24-year-old spent his first half of the season on loan at Fulham, but only started in seven games. The Morrocan international, who is still on contract with Queens Park Rangers, is expected to be unveiled as a Milan player before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
“I am honoured to be able to play in the best club in the world,” Taarabt told Gazetta dello Sport.
“Clarence Seedorf and I talked and we are both happy.”
"I'm a striker and I also like to play behind the strikers. I do not know Balotelli personally, but I know who he is and I am pleased to be able to play with him," he added.
Taarabt is reported to be at his medical in Milan today and has been see wearing an AC Milan scarf. He will join the Rossonieri based on the advice of former QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore.
"I know him well," Briatore said.
"He was the one who led my QPR towards the Premier League. He's phenomenal.
“Milan have made a great signing, but he's a talented player who needs looking after."
