Liverpool transfer news, Remy medical today, conflicting views over Lovren

Loic Remy

A selection of the latest transfer stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning.

Loic Remy is expected to undergo a medical today in Boston ahead of his £8.5 million move from Queens Park Rangers according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Liverpool team is currently on tour in the USA and Remy will link up with the squad immediately after all the formalities have taken place, and could even be available for selection as early as Sunday for their clash with Olympiacos in Chicago.

Fabio Borini's move to Sunderland is now in serious doubt according to the report. The clubs agreed a £14 million fee on Friday but the Italian appears to want to stay at Anfield and fight for his place in the side.

His agent Marco De Marchi is quoted, saying: “He should not be judged on his first year. He was out for six months with various injuries and during the past year he took a step back by going to Sunderland and he has had an extraordinary season.

“His future? Now, after the loan, Liverpool have not told me anything. I think he will stay, he is convinced that he will play.”

The Reds are also keen to wrap up deals for Divock Origi from Lille and Southampton's Dejan Lovren this week, with both deals reportedly close.

With regards to Lovren, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has told Sky Sports News there have been no bids for the Croatian defender.

He said: “If that does not change, he will continue to play at Southampton.

“We know there is a lot of interest in our players, I think that is normal. But we have to wait, we work on the team.”

The Daily Mirror has yet another report on Liverpool's spending spree this summer, and more mentions of a marquee signing. They are claiming a deal for Lovren could be done in the next 24 hours.

But there are more mentions of top class midfielders in the form of Arturo Vidal or Paul Pogba from Juventus, along with Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund, with Brendan Rodgers said to be prepared to pay in excess of £30 million for at least one of the players.
