Arsenal may target Taarabt if they fail to land Palace star – report

Arsenal could target Adel Taarabt if they fail to prise Wilfried Zaha away from Crystal Palace, according to the Daily Mirror.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is said to be keen to sign two forwards when the transfer window opens in January.

It is claimed Arsenal will bid £7m for Zaha but are also interested in former Tottenham man Taarabt, who signed a long-term contract at QPR during the summer.

Meanwhile, the FA are confident they will announce the result of their probe into the Mark Clattenburg race row by Monday lunchtime, The Sun say.

The governing body will apparently complete their interviews in the next 48 hours.

They are said to be determined to proceed with a decision despite the ongoing Metropolitan Police inquiry into an allegation that Clattenburg racially insulted Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel.

And the Daily Mail suggest John Terry’s omission for Wednesday’s Champions League game against Skakhtar Donetsk is ‘the beginning of the end’ for him at Chelsea.
