Taarabt ‘to delay decision’

Fiorentina are interested in signing Esteban Granero from QPR, Italian media have reported.

The Serie A club are said to be planning to make an offer for him when the transfer window opens next month.

Adel Taarabt will delay his decision whether to play in the Africa Cup of Nations, according to The Sun.

Taarabt may not play for Morocco in the tournament in order to help QPR in their battle against relegation, it has been suggested.

It has also been claimed recently that R’s midfielder Samba Diakite will snub Mali.

Liverpool are poised to buy Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and let former Blues star Joe Cole leave Anfield, the Daily Mirror reports.

It is claimed Cole, who is wanted by QPR boss Harry Redknapp, is set to move on as Liverpool are keen to sign Tom Ince from Blackpool as well as Sturridge.

Sturridge has been widely tipped to join the Merseyside club in a £12m deal when the transfer window opens next month.

The Mirror also say Chelsea scouts are to watch Corinthians star Paulinho in action against Egyption side Al-Ahly in the Club World Cup on Wednesday.
