France striker Loic Remy has reportedly boarded a flight to Boston, USA in order to complete a medical ahead of his potential £8.5 million switch from Queens Park Rangers to Liverpool.
Earlier many reports indicated that the Reds had reached an agreement with the Hoops over the transfer of the France striker after triggering the release clause in his contract.
And now, as the Merseyside club are currently on a pre-season tour in the United States, where they will be facing Roma in their first fixture of the Guinness International Cup, Remy has reportedly been asked to join them so that he can complete his medical.
Although Remy was impressive during his loan spell at Newcastle United, netting 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances, newly-promoted side QPR are reportedly keen on offloading the 27-year-old striker due to his excessive wage demands.
Meanwhile, as Remy's move to Anfield looks imminent, Liverpool have offically announced the departure of their flop forward Iago Aspas on a season-long loan to Sevilla.
"Liverpool have confirmed Iago Aspas has joined Sevilla on a season-long loan deal. The striker will spend the 2014-15 campaign with the La Liga club after a deal was finalised," read a statement on the club's official website.
The 26-year-old striker, who made only a handful of appearances for the Reds last season following his £9 million switch from Celta Vigo last summer, has been deemed surplus to requirement following the arrivals of Rickie Lambert and Lazar Marković.
However, Aspas has no regrets to being loaned out by Liverpool after only one season, insisting he is happy to move on to a different challenge.
"All I want to do is play football and Sevilla have given me that opportunity, and now I hope to be able to pay them back on a big scale," said Aspas, who added by saying that the Spanish side "deserve to be in the Champions League," and he wishes to "spend many years in Seville."
Finally the striker revealed his difficultly at making an impact at Liverpool, saying that he could not adapt to the climate in England.
"It wasn't very difficult to make an improvement," he added. "Even though people say Galicians are used to seeing clouds in the sky and a similar climate to the one in Liverpool, once you return here you treasure Spain a lot more. I hope I can adapt and acclimatise to Sevilla as quickly as possible."
