Queens Park Rangers are relegated from the Premier League after securing 25 points in their 35 games, but it is the services of their young and energetic French winger Loic Remi that’s trending the transfer talks.
At present Liverpool and Tottenham are the two clubs leading the race to sign a player fondly addressed as ‘the new Thierry Henry.’
Arsenal are the other club likely to sign the 26- year- old forward who relegated QPR brought to the Premier League for a club record fee of £10 million, from Olympic Marseilles.
Remy who had a relegation release clause in his contract is presently valued at a cut price of £6.5 million.
A scorer of goals, quick and can make great runs. His movement is excellent. He’s got the potential to be a really outstanding striker. Remy has 5 goals to his credit in 11 Premier League matches since moving to QPR in the New Year.
At the moment Liverpool are ahead of the other two potential buyer in the race to sign the player as Brendan Rodgers is good admirer of Remy’s versatility (he can also play along the flanks.) Remy’s £75,000- a- week wages is also within the club’s reach, especially given the cut- price transfer fee.
Tottenham are also in the race to sign the France international who QPR’s chief executive Tony Fernandes, brought to the Premier League to help ease the woes of an impending relegation for the Rangers , in January.
Asked following QPR’s relegation if the Premier League is home for him, Remy replied: “I feel like it is, in every way. There’s more pressure and there’s more contact, though there is more space, too.
“They play deep here and I like that. It’s the perfect league for me.”
