Loic Remy's move to Liverpool has been delayed because of administrative problems, according to local reports, but he will likely confirm a deal with the club on Monday.
Remy was due to seal a move with the Merseyside club after they came to an agreement with QPR, but now it appears that Monday will be the day he can finally put on a red shirt after problems with the paperwork concerning the move.
And the Mirror claim that with everything else in order, including an agreement of wages totalling £80,000 per week and a four year deal, Remy is simply waiting for his paperwork to be processed before the signing can become official.
The Reds are currently on a spending spree after offloading Luis Suarez to Barcelona for a fee believed to be around £75m. They have already spend £57m bringing in new talent this summer so far but with Suarez having contributed the vast majority of goals in their last campaign – where they came to within a win of the Premier League title – the striking force will no doubt continue to grow in the coming weeks in his absence.
Remy had a successful season on loan at Newcastle while QPR were in the Championship but the Frenchman has made it clear on a number of occasions that even if Rangers made the top flight, he would look to make a move elsewhere in the summer.
The Toon had been hopeful of signing the 27 year old but Alan Pardew was honest about the club's tight purse strings and Liverpool proved to be a much more suitable choice for the striker.
Should the paperwork process correctly he will become Brendan Rodgers' sixth signing in this transfer window. Fans are eagerly awaiting next season to see if the manager can adapt to life without the prolific Suarez, who was the club's top scorer last season despite spending six games on the sidelines at the beginning of the campaign.
