QPR midfielder, Adel Taarabt, could be on his way to Villa Park after it emerged that the Birmingham-based club are set t make a bid.
The £10m-rated playmaker was close to making a switch to Ligue 1 side, Paris Saint-Germain, earlier in the summer, however opted to stay in the Premier League.
Rangers have since stated that their star midfielder is not for sale, but Alex McCleish seems keen to test their resolve to hold on to the Moroccan.
The 22 year-old failed to make an impression at Tottenham between 2007 and 2010, where he didn’t feature in one match for Spurs.
However, since a breakout season at Championship-winning QPR, the 22 year-old has earned rave reviews, and could opt to join a bigger club.
