Loic Remy Transfer Off After Striker Fails Medical

New, comments

Loic Remy had widely been expected to join Liverpool during their US tour, but the deal is up in flames after the striker reportedly failed a medical.

It was widely accepted that Liverpool would be adding at least two or three more players to their ranks during their US tour, and with medicals completed for Divock Origi, Loic Remy, and Dejan Lovren taking place in the past week, it seemed only a matter of time before the club announced completed deals for each. Now it looks as though only two of the three will be taking place--assuming nothing goes wrong in the cases of Origi or Lovren--with Liverpool walking away from the Loic Remy deal after the striker could not pass a medical in Boston.

That leaves the club without a player that had presented good value for money and the promise of goals in the absence of Luis Suarez, and it means they'll now have to look elsewhere for someone to provide support for Daniel Sturridge. It also means fewer concerns about player (mis)conduct and the image a Liverpool player is supposed to uphold, though, which has been a major point of contention and debate in the past few weeks.

Worthwhile discussion, but all for naught now, as Loic Remy will not be a Liverpool player now or, one would assume, at any point in the future.
