QPR set £8m Remy asking price
Queens Park Rangers have set an asking price of £8m on striker Loic Remy, who is a summer transfer target of both Arsenal and Liverpool, ESPN has reported.
The French striker joined QPR from Marseille in January 2013, but spent this season on loan at Newcastle United after the London club was relegated to the Championship. His goals helped the Tyneside club to a comfortable mid-table finish in the Premier League.
They have also attracted interest from Arsenal, who remain the favourites for his signature. The player was also present in the stands for the Gunners’ final home match of the season against West Bromwich Albion. Manager Arsene Wenger is looking to provide more competition to first-choice centre forward Olivier Giroud.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are aiming to add depth to their squad as they face up to the demands of playing Champions League football next season, with manager Brendan Rodgers thought to pursuing a host of other targets including Southampton captain Adam Lallana.
QPR secured an immediate return to the Premier League on Saturday by beating Derby County in the Championship play-off final, but their manager Harry Redknapp admits Remy is set to leave. He said: "I don't see [Loic] Remy wanting to come back and play. He's talking about playing Champions League somewhere.
"I wouldn't know what he'll do, but I think he's got a buy-out clause which is at a reasonable level. Not much more than we paid for him."
