QPR striker Loic Remy is waiting to fly out to LA to join Liverpool's preseason tour.

The Daily Mail says Remy is set to fly out to America to become Liverpool's fifth signing of an increasingly busy summer.

Liverpool's £8.5million bid for the France international was accepted by Queens Park Rangers over the weekend and Remy will complete the formalities of a medical when he links up with Brendan Rodgers' squad in Boston, having already agreed personal terms.

Remy will give Liverpool more striking options following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
