QPR striker Loic Remy appears to be on his way to Liverpool after the two clubs agreed an £8.5m transfer fee for his services.
Remy is now heading to Merseyside for talks over a five-year-deal with the Reds after Tottenham and Arsenal reportedly pulled out of the race for the player's signature.
The France international has been tipped for a move away from Loftus Road for some time, after spending all of last season on loan at Newcastle where he scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances.
A permanent switch to the north-east was never on the cards after he made it clear that he wants to play for a club that can offer him Champions League football, which Liverpool can.
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is convinced Remy could be a bargain replacement for Luis Suarez after triggering a release clause in his Rangers' contract and he will now hope to complete negotiations quickly.
