According to Italian source CalcioMercato Liverpool have taken an interest in Marseille striker Loic Remy who has struggled to force his way into the starting line-up at the Stade Velodrome this term.

The Marseille forward may be ready to make his move to the Premier League having seemingly been linked with prospective suitors from the English top tier for a few seasons now.

The 25 year old has enjoyed two successful seasons at the Stade Velodrome since his move from Nice, netting 37 goals from 83 appearances. The Daily Mail stated in August that Chelsea were closing in on the French international following a £15m bid but it seems that deal didn’t come to fruition.

The Ligue 1 side may well be ready to consider offers for Remy after he became frozen out of new boss Elie Baup’s side. Thus far the speedy striker has had to settle for a place coming on off the bench and has not started a single Ligue 1 match this term as Marseille have marched on to six wins from seven and are now sitting pretty at the top of the table.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers could well do with striking reinforcements given that Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini are the Merseyside club’s only recognised senior forwards in his squad at present.
