Liverpool call 8.5million transfer of Loic Remy off as concerns over Remy’s medical

Loic RemyLoic’s Remy 8.5million move to Liverpool from Queens Park Rangers has collapsed.

Remy was expected to be announced as Liverpool’s fifth summer signing but the Reds have pulled out of the deal at the last minute.

Liverpool FC have refused to comment on the situation but it is believed that there was a problem with Remy’s medical.

Remy, who scored 14 goals while on loan at Newcastle last season, had flew to Boston to partake in a routine medical after Liverpool triggered a release clause in Remy’s contract.

Personal terms were all agreed and he was set to be given the iconic number 7 shirt, left vacant by the departure of Luis Suarez.

Anfield sources put the delay in announcing the signing due to a minor paperwork issue, but it appears that Liverpool were seeking a second opinion on his medical.

On the back of that advice they decided not to proceed with the deal.

Reports indicate that the deal will not be resurrected and manager Brendan Rodgers will look to other striking targets.

Transfer News: Red clinch signings of Remy, Origi and Javier Manquillo..and plan further spending

RemyLiverpool look set to wrap up deals for QPR striker Loic Remy, Lille’s highly rated young striker Divock Origi and Atletico Madrid’s upcoming full-back Javier Manquillo.

Loic Remy has passed a medical in Boston on Wednesday and has agreed personal terms on a 4 year contract.

Remy is seen as a real bargain buy as he cost Liverpool just 8.5million to sign from QPR, having scored 14 goals during a loan spell at Newcastle.

Divock Origi is seen as a future star after impressing for Belgium at the World Cup, starting ahead of Chelsea striker Lukaku. Origi will cost Liverpool 10million and they could potentially loan him back to Lille for a season.

Liverpool are also close to wrapping up a deal for Aletico Madrid’s left-back Javier Manquillo, with this deal being a 2-year loan period with an option to buy for 5million at the end of the loan spell.

Liverpool have already signed 4 players this summer, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert from Southampton, rising star Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen and talented winger Lazar Markovic from Benfica for a combined 60million, potentially increasing to 80million if the Reds wrap up the triple deal.

Liverpool are not set to stop there either though with Liverpool targeting Southampton defender Dejan Lovren, with a potential 20million deal getting closer to completion.

Liverpool are also in the market for a left-back with the Reds still not giving up on Seville full-back Alberto Moreno, but are willing to move onto other targets in this position.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also in the market for a ‘world-class’ midfielder and has targeted Juventus midfielder Vidal, and are also targeting Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund who could be available for 30million.

Liverpool agree 8.5million fee for QPR striker Loic Remy

Loic RemyLiverpool have agreed a 8.5million fee to sign French striker Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers.

Arsenal and Tottenham were both heavily linked with the striker during the transfer window, but it appears that Liverpool have won the race to sign the 27-year-old.

Liverpool wanted Remy to lower his wage demands from 80,000-a-week to 60,000-a-week, and it appears that Remy is willing to do just that to move to Liverpool.

With Liverpool agreeing a fee with Sunderland to sell Fabio Borini to them this represents very good business from Liverpool.

Remy scored 14 goals in 24 appearances the Premier League last season while on loan at Newcastle United, and for 8.5million represents a great piece of business for Liverpool.

Liverpool reignite interest in Newcastle playermaker Hatem Ben Arfa

Liverpool have reportedly reignited their interest in Newcastle playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa and have approached Newcastle over a summer move for Ben Arfa, according to reports.

The Reds hold a long interest in Ben Arfa and reportedly made a bid for the French international in January which was hastily dismissed by manager Alan Pardew.

Brendan Rodgers is now looking for players that can have a direct effect on the first team. Ben Arfa can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder and is quick, skilful and strong when injury free.

Ben Arfa made 19 league appearances last season, although only 6 of them were starts due to injury, but still managed to score 4 goals and 2 assists.

Newcastle want a fee of between 12-15million if they sell him but Liverpool are unwilling to match that fee with concerns over Ben Arfa’s injury’s.
