Liverpool are reportedly preparing a bid to sign QPR striker Loic Remy according to the Daily Mail.

The 26 year old French international moved to QPR in an £8m deal in January but can be picked up for the same fee if the West London side, as expected, are relegated from the Premier League. Harry Redknapp’s side have almost no chance of beating the drop and an inevitable queue has started to form at Remy’s door.

The former Marseille man has proved a very capable striker in the English top tier, scoring five goals in nine appearances despite QPR’s woes.

The speedy striker finished as Marseille’s top scorer in each of his first team seasons at the club but new boss Elie Baup was happy to sell the forward and now Liverpool are apparently keen to land the in-form striker.

Brendan Rodgers may well be keen to supplement his strike-force even though Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have formed a good partnership. Any move for Remy may well lead to Italian Fabio Borini heading for an Anfield exit having failed to impress in an injury ravaged season.

Loic Remy will demand a salary in the region of £90k and this is thought to be one potential stumbling block to a move to the Merseyside club whilst Arsenal are also said to be interested in the QPR marksman.
