Arsenal and Liverpool have been given a boost in their attempts to sign Loic Remy as QPR manager Harry Redknapp revealed the Frenchman isn't likely to stay with the newly promoted outfit., according to the Daily Express.
Remy has had a stellar season on-loan at Newcastle United and has bagged an impressive 14 Premier League goals in his first full campaign in the top flight.
The French star's exploits have alerted Champions League clubs who are looking to boost their squads.
Both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers are keen to sign-up the 27-year-old.
The Gunners have been the club linked for the longest and rumours of a move intensified after he was spotted in the Emirates Stadium crowd towards the end of the season.
Now Queens Park Rangers - who were promoted back to the Premier League on Saturday after a year-long absence - have named their price after becoming resigned to losing the man they signed around 18 months ago.
The west London club have revealed it would take a £8 million bid to trigger a release clause in the former Marseille man's contract - similar to the fee that led to him first arriving in England.
The R's manager Redknapp isn't expecting to manage Remy at Loftus Road this year.
"I don't see (Loic) Remy wanting to come back and play," said the former Tottenham Hotspur boss.
"He's talking about playing Champions League somewhere.
"I wouldn't know what he'll do, but I think he's got a buy-out clause which is at a reasonable level."
Liverpool have become late-runners in the chase to sign Remy after they narrowly missed out on a first Premier League title.
The Reds will be looking for reinforcements to cover lethal strike duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge as they prepare for a return to Europe's flagship competition. Fabio Borini - who spent this season on-loan at Newcastle's rivals Sunderland this season - is also expected to return to Anfield.
