Reds willing to wait for the Frenchman to budge…
QPR and French international striker Loic Remy has been asked by Liverpool to lower his wage requirements if he wants a move to Anfield, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 27-year old is demanding between £80,000 and £90,000 per week in wages to join a high profile club this summer, but Liverpool, much like Arsenal and Tottenham, are unwilling to give him what he wants.
Remy, who showed that he could be a regular goalscorer in the Premier League last season by netting 14 goals whilst on loan at Newcastle, has emerged as a target for Liverpool recently as they seek to bolster their forward line following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. However, reports suggest that Reds’ boss Brendan Rodgers only sees Remy as a backup to England international Daniel Sturridge, and thus does not want to meet his lofty wage demands.
While Tottenham seem to have dropped interest in Remy, Liverpool and Arsenal could still be interested in landing the Frenchman later in the transfer window, if he lowers his wage demands.
