The Reds have just enjoyed one of their most successful Premier League campaigns ever, with Brendan Rodgers’s outfit finishing the campaign in second place behind eventual champions Manchester City.
And that runners-up berth means that Liverpool have also now managed to qualify for Europe’s premier club competition next season too for the first time five years, however, that will bring an extra burden on Rodgers’s playing resources.
However, the Northern Irishman has already made it clear that he intends to be purchasing experienced players who can go straight into the club’s starting lineup next season, with attack believed to be one of his main priorities, when the summer transfer window does finally reopen for business.
Rodgers is clearly happy with his two first-choice strikers in the shape of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, however, he wants back up for that prolific pair, with Remy said to now be his number one target.
The experienced France international has just finished a highly successful season-long loan spell with Newcastle United, where Remy managed to find the back of the net on 14 occasions in total in just his 26 Premier League matches in the north east.
And with the 27-year-old set to be offloaded by the west London club this summer, despite Remy being contracted to Loftus Road until 2017, Rodgers is now hopeful of being able to conclude a £10m deal for the player before the start of this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
