Liverpool are on the verge of completing a £12million move for Nice striker Loic Remy, according to reports this Friday lunchtime.
As we reported this morning, Remy has reportedly been the target of new Reds boss Roy Hodgson, who is currently with the Liverpool squad at a pre-season training camp in Switzerland.
Some reports now suggest Remy is ready to undergo a medical with Liverpool and put pen to paper on a deal at Anfield.
Remy’s agent told Sky Sports, “Yes, Liverpool are interested in Loic and Loic is interested in Liverpool. There has also been interest from West Ham and Tottenham and it is now up to Nice. Loic has always said he is keen to play in England and Liverpool are a massive club.
“I believe if Loic comes to England he will be a massive success. He is like Thierry Henry, but I believe if he comes to England he could be even better than Henry. He is a sensational player, he is very strong, very quick and two-footed. He is the complete player and Liverpool would love him.”
Nice coach, Eric Roy, told press on Remy, “I absolutely rely on him but we have resigned ourselves to his leaving.
“We had a verbal agreement that he would spend two seasons at Nice so it was always likely he would leave if an offer came along that matched what the club expected.”
More as we get it. Why not discuss Loic Remy in the forums with other fans.
