Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has given his opinion on Liverpool's botched attempt to sign QPR striker Loic Remy. Liverpool were set to sign Remy for £8 million but cancelled the deal after discovering issues during the strict medical.
Given Remy is a proven Premier League goalscorer, Carragher feels Liverpool's outlook on the matter is a mistake.
“It’s gutting for everyone," Carragher told The Anfield Wrap.
“I was thinking when the deal fell through that it’s not very often Liverpool get a great player for a good price.
“It’s not something that's Liverpool’s forte really, getting value for money in the transfer market. So to get a player with goals in the Premier League, who looked like he could play with Sturridge and can do a job out wide, would have been great.
“He looked the perfect type… and now it’s left Liverpool in a difficult situation.”
