Liverpool face battle to sign French striker
Liverpool are thought to be closing in on QPR’s wantaway striker Loic Remy but, according to the Daily Mirror, are first insisting that the Frenchman lowers his wage demands.
Remy, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle United, has no intention of staying with the newly promoted club this campaign, as he looks to secure himself Champions League football.
The Reds have spoken to QPR, and the France World Cup striker has an £8m escape clause in his contract at Loftus Road for Champions League clubs. However, Liverpool have been put off by Remy’s personal terms, and it is understood he is demanding between £80-90,000-a-week.
