Liverpool beat West Ham to Loic Remy

West Ham looked like hot favourites to sign the prolific Nice striker Loic Remy, but it now seems that Liverpool have hijacked the deal.

Remy’s agent, Frederic Guerra, said earlier: “Yes, Liverpool are interested in Loic and Loic is interested in Liverpool,”

“There has also been interest from West Ham and Tottenham and it is now up to Nice. Loic has always said he is keen to play in England and Liverpool are a massive club.”

He added: “I believe if Loic comes to England he will be a massive success. He is like Thierry Henry, but I believe if he comes to England he could be even better than Henry. He is a sensational player, he is very strong, very quick and two-footed. He is the complete player and Liverpool would love him.”

Remy confirmed the move himself today when he said in a local paper in Nice: “Liverpool is a legendary club,”

“I am very excited by the thought of playing there. It has a magnificent stadium and a fantastic public.”

And to cap it off, the Nice manager Eric Roy, admitted that Remy would not be blocked from accepting the deal. He said: “I absolutely rely on him but we have resigned ourselves to his leaving,”

“We had a verbal agreement that he would spend two seasons at Nice so it was always likely he would leave if an offer came along that matched what the club expected.”

So that looks like a done deal then………
