QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin believes that Adel Taarabt will not be leaving West London in the January transfer window.

The Moroccan midfielder's performances in recent weeks have led to reports that Arsenal are interested in bringing the attacking midfielder to the Emirates.

"Adel is a very important player for us," Faurlin told the Fulham Chronicle.

"It would be a huge blow for us if he leaves, but I don't think he will.

"Everybody needs to be pulling in the same direction, and if that happens everything else will be taken care of. Adel loves it at QPR."
