Late in the first half of Liverpool's match at Preston--which currently sits at 1-0 to the hosts, with Emre Can coming off on twenty minutes after picking up a calf strain--the Liverpool Echo reported that the club have agreed a fee with QPR for the transfer of striker Loic Remy, who'd been the subject of increased speculation in the past two days. The fee is, as expected, right around £8m, representing a significant drop-off from Wilfried Bony, who'd reportedly been the primary target in the immediate post-Suarez period.
This isn't one about which there's likely to be anything resembling consensus; purely from a playing perspective, Loic Remy is a talented forward, and one who will get his fair share of goals as long as he stays fit and sees enough playing time. What comes with him aside from the football is cause for concern, however, especially having just parted ways with Suarez.
