Milan’s official television station confirmed negotiations with QPR and Fulham to swap Cristian Zaccardo with Adel Taarabt.
The news was announced on Milan Channel this afternoon, though a deal is not yet complete.
Taarabt had been linked with a move to the Rossoneri last year, but was not taken any further for the Moroccan international.
According to Sport Mediaset, Zaccardo would join Fulham in a straight exchange of loans for Taarabt, even though he is already on loan from QPR.
Taarabt is a 24-year-old who can play in any of the supporting roles required for Coach Clarence Seedorf’s 4-2-3-1 system.
Zaccardo is a 32-year-old centre-back who has made eight appearances in all competition for Milan this season, but has been a bit-part player since arriving from Parma in January 2013.
