Liverpool are set to beat Arsenal and Tottenham to the signing of QPR striker Loic Remy.Reports yesterday suggested that Liverpool were the frontrunners after Arsenal and Tottenham withdrew their interest.
Both Arsenal and Liverpool were willing to pay Remy's £8m release clause but it seems personal terms have proved more of an issue.
Indeed, it was claimed that Remy's £80,000-a-week wage demands had curtailed his chances of joining either London club.
But after QPR boss Harry Redknapp confirmed that Remy had his heart set on Champions League football next term, Liverpool were left as the French international's preferred destination.
He said: "I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere."
"We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he's really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year.
"If he goes to the right team, he's capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season."
And reports in Italy suggest that Remy is now set to be unveiled as the Reds fifth summer signing on Tuesday.
It is thought that Remy will sign a five-year deal at Anfield and will earn £60,000-a-week.
