The Reds are apparently willing to meet the France international’s buy-out clause, but are not prepared to break the bank when it comes to wages.

Liverpool would have to pay £8m to get him on board, and are said to be in pole position to land the 27-year-old after reports suggested that both Arsenal and Tottenham had dropped out of the race to land his signature.

However, Brendan Rodgers is said to have been put off by Remy’s personal terms and it is understood he is demanding between £80-90,000-a-week.

Rodgers is reluctant to shell out so much on a weekly basis for a player that will mostly be playing back up to current star striker Daniel Sturridge.

Remy, 27, who scored 14 goals on loan at Newcastle last season, is one of several options Brendan Rodgers is considering as he decides how to spend his £75million windfall from Luis Suarez’s sale to Barcelona.
