Loic Remy: On his way to Liverpool for talks

Loic Remy: On his way to Liverpool for talks

Remy spent last season on loan at Newcastle, scoring 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances, but looks unlikely to be part of the R's squad on their return to the top flight.

It is understood the France international has a release clause in his contract which allows him to speak to clubs in the Champions League if they meet the agreed fee, and he has now been given permission to talk to Liverpool.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes wrote on social media: "This season is all about players who want to play for us. Some will move to bigger clubs most will stay some will come."

Remy, 27, would be the Reds' fifth signing of the summer as Brendan Rodgers bolsters his squad for the extra commitments in Europe while coping with the loss of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

Rodgers has already signed Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic this summer.

Sky sources also understand that former Chelsea star Salomon Kalou is keen on a move to Anfield but his current club Lille are unlikely to let the 28-year-old leave if Belgium international Divock Origi - yet another striker on Liverpool's radar - leaves the club in this transfer window.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
