AC Milan’s official television station has confirmed the Italian giants are in 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.
