Adel Taarabt's agent said on Tuesday that AC Milan has agreed on a 4 million euro (LE38.5 million) fee with Queens Park Rangers to turn the player's loan deal into a permanent one.
The Moroccan striker signed a six-month loan deal with Milan last January, with an option to make it permanent.
According to the player's agent, Milan will use their option to sign him on a permanent basis, as the 24-year-old has impressed the Italian side, scoring two goals in seven appearances.
"Milan will take up their option and there is already a deal between the two clubs to sign him at the end of the season for a reasonable, symbolic price," Vincenzo Morabito told fantagazzetta.com.
"It won’t be any more than 3 or 4 milllion euros ... It would mean something extraordinary if that didn’t happen."
"I am absolutely satisfied with his performance so far, but then I had no doubts. Adel has settled straight in at Milan and is showing what he can do. He is one of the few positives in the Rossoneri’s campaign," he added.
