Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and his team have already finalised personal terms and do not expect there to be any problems with the medical meaning Remy should be unveiled as a Red within the next 36 hours.

The 27-year-old scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League games on-loan for Newcastle last season and has five goals in 24 caps for France.
Remy’s move is the first of three deals expected to be made by Liverpool in the coming days.
With Luis Suarez being sold to Barcelona and the added workload of Champions League football next season, the Reds are in need of reinforcements and Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi are on the verge of joining Remy at Anfield.
Rodgers has been busy this summer already after securing Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can and Rickie Lambert.
With Remy included to the four previous signings this transfer window, Liverpool have already spent around £65m and are likely to add to that sum soon.
