Liverpool have offered two players to Nice in an attempt to bring Loic Remy to Anfield.

The French starlet has been at the centre of a bidding war between the Reds and West Ham - with the Londoners currently believed to be in pole position for his signature - but the Daily Mirror reports that Roy Hodgson is willing to offer two of his fringe players as part of the deal in a last ditch attempt to sign the striker.

Moroccan winger Nabil El Zhar and Frenchman Damien Plessis are understood to be the men in question but, with each player valued at around £700,000, Liverpool will still have to go some way to match West Ham's bid of £13.5 million for the 23-year-old.

Hodgson has already increased his transfer kitty with the sale of full-back Emiliano Insua but, with reports suggesting that the Merseysiders are unable to afford to buy Remy outright, they may have to cash-in on Argentina captain Javier Mascherano before approaching Nice with a realistic offer.

However, this could all be in vain after Les Aigons general manager Patrick Governatori said that he was happy with the Hammers' latest bid.

"We received a new offer from West Ham which seems good and suits us," Governatori told French newspaper L'Equipe.

"If Liverpool want him, we need clear arrangements and commitments. West Ham are very keen. And we want to sort out that case before the end of the month."
