2) Loic Remy (Queens Park Rangers, £8.5m)
A deal that is widely reported to be close to completion, Liverpool are the strong favourites to beat off competition for the signing of Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy. The French international has shown himself to be a reliable and consistent goalscorer in the Premier League, impressing for both QPR in 2012/13, and for loan club Newcastle United in the 2013/14 season. A player who would no doubt benefit from better service at a bigger club, Remy could certainly help Liverpool cope with the loss of Suarez’s goals upfront, and provide them with the finishing touch in front of goal to fire the club to the title. Potentially one of the bargains of the summer, Remy will only cost £8.5m due to a release clause in his contract at Loftus Road.
