Jol has insisted that Taarabt's talent outweighs any potential pitfalls to the deal, with the Dutchman excited to be reunited with a player he first brought to England in 2007 at Tottenham Hotspur.
He told reporters following Fulham's 1-1 draw with Real Betis: "We agreed everything with the club so the only thing we have to do is a medical. If that is sound and good, he will join us. The medical will be tomorrow (Tuesday).
"I like his creativity and, of course, sometimes it comes off when he scores a lot of goals and I think he was involved in 40 goals [during the 2010-11 Championship promotion season]. It is like Dimitar Berbatov, sometimes these fantastic talents will be blamed but I hope to find a way to gel him in together with the boys we've got. I think he can do a hell of a job for us because is a tremendous player on the ball.
"I have known him now for a long time. When I was at Hamburg, I wanted him but thought the money Daniel Levy asked for was too much. Then I went to Ajax and I thought it was too much for a player that never played. Then I was too late after that because he went to QPR, where he did ever so well. Remember the fact he was an over £10m player 12 months ago, so I think you have to take them when they are bad and hopefully he will show his potential here."
The 24-year-old made 29 appearances for QPR last season in all competitions, scoring five goals.
