QPR manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that French striker Loic Remy wants to leave the club in favour of playing Champions League football next season, reports The Daily Mail. 

The report has suggested that the striker has a number of admirers, with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham all reportedly interested in his services. And it appears that the Hoops boss is ready to let the forward depart the club in this transfer window.

Redknapp has insisted that, despite the player having a good contract at Loftus Road, it would surprise him if Remy stayed at the club for the up coming season. 

"I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere,' Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he’s really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year.

"If he goes to the right team, he’s capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season.

"If nothing comes along I'm sure he will be back here. He had a contract, a good contract, here."


Remy's wish for Champions League football may well put Spurs behind the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool in the race for his signature. The White Hart Lane outfit only managed to secure a Europa League spot for the 2014/15 season, while Arsenal and Liverpool were both able to finish inside the Premier League's top four last term.


Arsenal have been the favourites to land Remy for some time now, but reports have recently indicated that the Gunners have failed to match the player's personal terms. It remains to be seen as to whether Wenger's side will return with another offer to the Frenchman, as Wenger looks to improve his forward line.

The north London club have already secured the services of former Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, but only have Yaya Sanogo as back-up for Olivier Giroud as an out-and-out striker. 


Liverpool, on the other hand, could now swoop for Remy, who struck 14 league goals on loan at Newcastle United last season. The Reds appear to be on the lookout for a striker to replace Uruguayan hitman Luis Suarez, after the forward departed Anfield for Barcelona last week. 

Rodgers' side have already completed the signing of Rickie Lambert, but may look to increase their options further as they embark upon a Champions League challenge in 2014/15.
