Liverpool in pole position to sign striker

LIVERPOOL are in pole position to sign Loic Remy from QPR, after Tottenham and Arsenal pulled out - it has been reported today.

The Reds are willing to meet the escape clause in French striker's QPR contract, but do not want to break the bank when it comes to wages

Loic Remy has been told to drop his wage demands to secure a dream £8million move to Liverpool.

Liverpool are in pole position to sign Remy after Tottenham pulled out of the race and Arsenal cooled their interest.

The Reds have spoken to QPR and the France World Cup striker has an £8million 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.

Liverpool are reluctant to pay this amount for a player who will be back up to Daniel Sturridge and are content to wait.

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.

Rodgers would like another striker because Belgian teenager Divock Origi will return to Lille on loan for next season when he completes his £9.8million switch.

Liverpool have also looked at Swansea's Wilfried Bony, but the Welsh club want at least £19million for the Ivorian international.
