Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is reportedly edging towards joining Liverpool in the ongoing summer transfer window.
The French international spent the last season on-loan at Newcastle United. He had an impressive season with the Tyneside club, scoring 14 goals from 26 league appearances. Remy's form has seen him attract interest from the top clubs in England.
Arsenal and their north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, along with Liverpool, are keen on landing the 27-year-old striker. According to the French newspaper Le10Sport, Remy is closing in on joining Brendan Rodgers's side this summer.
The Gunners and Spurs are interested in bringing Remy to London. However, it is unlikely the Frenchman would join the White Hart Lane club as he is looking to play for the club that is featuring in the Champions League next season.
Liverpool saw their star striker Luis Suarez join Barcelona earlier this month. Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in a striker as the former Swansea boss is aware that it would be difficult for him to find a direct replacement for the Uruguayan international. He has now set his sights on Remy.
The Mirror reports the Merseyside club have made a final approach for Remy to bring him to Anfield. QPR have confirmed the Reds are in talks with the west London club as they look to land the striker this summer.
Rodgers was interested in adding Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony to Liverpool's squad. However, the Ivory Coast international's £19m release clause has forced the Reds boss to look elsewhere.
Remy's release clause for a top four club is £8.5m and Rodgers is convinced the World Cup striker could fit into his plans at Liverpool.
Meanwhile, the QPR manager has reiterated that Remy wants to play in the Champions League. The former Spurs boss believes the striker is capable of scoring over 15 goals if he joins the right Premier League team.
"I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere," Redknapp told talkSPORT.
"We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he's really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year. If he goes to the right team, he's capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season."
