Loic Remy fails Liverpool medical

Published 1 Comments

Loic Remy’s £8.5 million move from Queens Park Rangers to Liverpool has dramatically collapsed after the France international failed a routine medical.

Liverpool have so far declined to comment, but in 2010 Remy failed a medical with Marseille after a potential heart problem was detected during his examination.

Blow for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believed he had sealed a deal for the 27-year-old, who scored 14 Premier League goals for loan club Newcastle United last season, after Arsenal and Tottenham dropped out of the race.

Rodgers is currently in the process of rebuilding his squad following the £75 million sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, and had identified Remy as the perfect summer signing to fill the huge void left by the prolific Uruguay international along with fellow new boys Rickie Lambert, Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi, who is on the brink of sealing a move from Lille.

News of Remy’s failed medical comes two days after Liverpool’s £25 million summer signing Adam Lallana was ruled out of action for six weeks with a knee injury.

What next for Remy?

Remy, despite failing his medical, is unlikely to stay with QPR - but will another club be prepared to take a gamble following news of his underlying health risk?

Arsenal and Tottenham both recently pulled out of the race to sign the French forward, but Newcastle may be keen to secure his services after an impressive loan spell at St James’ Park last season.

Remy’s dream of playing next season’s Champions League, however, now hang by a thread.
