Liverpool has told Arsenal striker target Loic Remy that they are more than willing to pay his £8 million buyout clause with QPR, but have let the Frenchman know that they are not prepared to pay the current wage he is asking for according to the Daily Mirror, and this being the case it is hard to imagine Arsenal doing so also given their strict wage policy at the Emirates.

In fact it could be the fact that the Frenchman is demanding somewhere between £80,000 and £90,000 per-week that has caused Arsenal to cool their interest.

Remy scored 14 goals while on loan at Newcastle last season and along with Swansea’s Wilfried Bony was being looked at as a player that could come in and replace Daniel Sturridge if need be, but gives Swansea’s £19 million valuation of Bony and Remy’s wage demands we here at Soccer Transfers expect to see the Reds turn their attention to a less expensive option.
