Liverpool In Talks With Striker Loic Remy

loic-remyFrench striker Loic Remy has held talks with Liverpool and Arsenal over a summer move, a source close to the player told Press Association Sport last week.

Remy is contracted to Queens Park Rangers until 2017, but spent last season on loan at Newcastle, where he scored 14 goals from 26 league games. Remy has long been linked with a move to Arsenal but with a buyout clause of around £10 million, would be a bargain pickup for Liverpool.

As for Remy heading back to newly promoted QPR, Rangers manager Harry Redknapp discounted that option saying:

“I don’t see (Loic) Remy wanting to come back and play. He’s talking about playing Champions League somewhere,” Redknapp admitted.

“I wouldn’t know what he’ll do, but I think he’s got a buyout clause which is at a reasonable level. Not much more than we paid for him.”

Remy wants to play Champions League football next season, so they tell me. The chances of us keeping him are not great if he’s got a buy-out clause. He’s done well at Newcastle, and one or two other big clubs are trying to get him, so there’s every chance he will go,” QPR boss said.

“I chased him at Tottenham, and I knew he would do well. He’s a scorer, and with the right team pushing to get in the top four, he’s capable of getting 20 goals. If I say he’s worth £20m and his buy-out clause is £10m, or whatever, then it’s difficult.”

With Liverpool added at least six Champions League games to their schedule next season, Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a couple of experienced strikers who can take the load off Suarez and Sturridge.
