QPR striker Loic Remy has agreed a long term contract with Liverpool after accepting wages worth £80,000-a-week with the Anfield outfit, according to The Metro.
The report has suggested that, despite having held talks with Arsenal over a move to north London, the forward is now set to complete a five-year deal with Brendan Rodgers' side.
Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio appears to have been the first journalist to break the news regarding Remy's transfer to Liverpool, and it now remains to be seen as to when the player will finalise his move to Anfield. It's expected that a deal should go through by the early stages of next week, with a fee close to be being agreed for the £8 million rated star.
Liverpool fans will certainly be excited by the potential move, as the club gear up for a Champions League campaign under Rodgers next term. The Reds, of course, are on the lookout for a Luis Suarez replacement after the Uruguayan departed the club for Barcelona last week.
Remy will now join the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert in Liverpool's attack next season, as the Reds look to go one better in the Premier League after only managing to secure a runners up spot last term.
Liverpool's expected signing of Remy will, however, come as a major blow to a number of Premier League clubs, who were chasing his signature. Reports had previously indicated that Arsenal were in talks with the Frenchman, but failed to match his wage demands.
The Gunners' north London rivals Tottenham have also been credited with interest in the player in recent time, while it appears that Newcastle United wanted to take him back to St James' Park after his successful loan spell with the club in 2013/14.
Arsenal, Tottenham and Co. may now have to look elsewhere as the clubs look to improve on their attacking options for the new season.
