Liverpool are closing in on their fifth summer signing, with widespread reports claiming Loic Remy has flown to Boston to complete a medical ahead of his move to Anfield.
The Reds agreed a fee of £8.5million for the the Queens Park Rangers striker, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle, with reports suggesting a move could be completed by Thursday.
Remy caught the eye following his arrival at Loftus Road for the second half of the 2012-13 season, however his goals could not keep Harry Redknapp’s side in the Premier League.
He spent last season on loan at Newcastle United, and proved himself capable of scoring consistently at Premier League level, firing 14 goals in a season that was disrupted by niggling injuries and a three match suspension.
His record of 14 goals in 26 appearances appears to have caught the eye of Brendan Rodgers, who has activated a release clause in his contract that states Remy can join a Champions League club for a fee of £8.5million.
The France international is now set to join the Reds on their pre season tour of the United States, however the boss refused to comment on possible new arrivals at his press conference in Boston yesterday.
“I shall not talk about speculation on any player until they have signed,” he said.
“I will talk about them when they are signed and have agreed to come in.”
