Loic Remy has been told to drop his wage demands to secure a dream £8million move to Liverpool.

Liverpool are in pole position to sign Remy after Tottenham pulled out of the race and Arsenal cooled their interest.

The Reds have spoken to QPR and the France World Cup striker has an £8million escape clause in his contract at Loftus Road for Champions League clubs.

However Liverpool have been put off by Remy's personal terms and it is understood he is demanding between £80-90,000-a-week.

Liverpool are reluctant to pay this amount for a player who will be back up to Daniel Sturridge and are content to wait.
