According to Sky Sports QPR has accepted a bid of £8.5 million for French international striker Loic Remy.

The 27-year-old is believed to have a release clause built into his contract that allows him to meet with clubs that are competing in the Champions League providing they were to meet the agreed fee.

QPR owner 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.”

Arsenal was also linked heavily to Remy given their French connections, and the fact he was seen watching a game at the Emirates late last season.

There is still the question of wages hanging over the deal with Liverpool saying just the other day that Remy might have to lower his expectations of £90,000 per-week if he wanted to move to Anfield.

If the news is correct and that Remy becomes the Reds fifth summer signing it is an excellent move by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers in finding a cheap alternative to Luis Suarez who the Reds sold to Barcelona for £75 million.
