Liverpool are considering a shock move in signing Arsenal striker target Loic Remy, according to

The Reds allowed their star striker Luis Suarez join Barcelona after both clubs agreed to reach an agreement over the transfer of the Uruguayan international on Friday for a fee thought to be about £75m.

The Reds used the former Ajax man and Daniel Sturridge to lead the Merseyside club's attacking division last season. Brendan Rodgers is in the market in search for a striker and he wants to use the transfer funds from Suarez's sale to bolster Liverpool's strike force for the next season.

The Northern Irishman has set his sights on signing the Queens Park Rangers' striker. The France international has long been linked with a move to the Emirates, despite interest from Arsenal's north London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.

The 27-year-old spent the last season on loan at Newcastle United and had an impressive spell at the Tyneside club, scoring 14 goals in the league. It is very clear the Frenchman is not keen on returning to St James' Park on a permanent transfer this summer.

Remy has expressed his desire to feature in the Champions League next season and QPR manager Harry Redknapp has accepted defeat in keeping the striker at Loftus Road.

Liverpool return to Europe's elite club competition and the process of strengthening the squad has already started at Anfield. The Reds already signed Rickie Lambert from Southampton and the former Swansea boss is looking to bring in another striker in the ongoing transfer window as Suarez's replacement.

Remy has already featured in the Premier League and his experience of playing top flight English football could prove vital for Liverpool, if he decides to make a switch to Anfield.

Rodgers is aware that he will face competition from Arsenal in capturing Remy this summer. Should Liverpool fail to land the QPR striker, they could shift their focus on signing Real Madrid star Karim Benzema in a £40m deal.
