Someone Should Buy this Player

Forget about Carlos Tevez, Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez, Fabio Coentrao, Ashley Young or even Gareth Bale, some of the players who will top the headlines when the much-awaited summer transfer window opens. There is one particular player who a club worth its salt should, actually, must buy, when the seemingly busy transfer window opens.

I have watched countless videos of equally countless players on YouTube. From Cristiano Ronaldo to Luis Suarez to Eden Hazard to Ryan Babel to Royston Drenthe to Cristiano Ronaldo versus Lionel Messi versus Ronaldinho to even– regrettably – Christian Poulsen and lately, Sylvain Marveaux.

All these players (minus Poulsen – of course) plus many others have the skill and flair that define a modern footballer. But of all the video compilations I have watched, none of them compares to one whiz kid I happened to stumble on when doing my usual strolls on YouTube.

Am not a football talent scout all right. But I can tell when a player is good, really good. And this one is beyond good. His name is Adel Taarabt. Born on 24 May 1989, in Zeghangane, Morocco, the soon-to-be 22-year-old was named the Football League Player of the Year as he helped his team Queens Park Rangers secure promotion into the top flight of English Football for the first time in 15 years.

The attacking midfielder top-scored for QPR this season with 19 goals, playing a key role for the West Londoners as they clinched promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Lazio, Newcastle and Liverpool are interested. For some selfish reason, I hope, pray and wish that King Kenny snaps up this wonderboy. Without further ado, have a look at this young lad's exceptional talent. Leave your comments if you also believe he’s worth investing on:
