iverpool manager Roy Hodgson has played down reports linking the Reds with a move for West Ham and Tottenham target Loic Remy. The 23-year-old, who has been likened to Thierry Henry, scored 16 goals for Nice last season and has broken into the France national team. West Ham had been leading the chase for Remy after making a couple of sizeable offers for the striker, but they were unable to agree a fee with Nice. However, Hodgson, has cooled stories linking the Reds with a move for the France international. Hodgson said: "He's a player who was mentioned to me by the scouting department and a player the club were following before I came. "He's a player I know very little about. If I am going to be interested in a player I am going to have to watch him playing, study him and make judgments which I have not been able to." Remy's agent, Frederic Guerra, was quoted on Friday morning that he had spoken with the Reds about a switch to Anfield. "Yes, Liverpool are interested in Loic and Loic is interested in Liverpool," Guerra told skysports.com. "There has also been interest from West Ham and Tottenham and it is now up to Nice. "Loic has always said he is keen to play in England and Liverpool are a massive club. "I believe if Loic comes to England he will be a massive success. "He is like Thierry Henry, but I believe if he comes to England he could be even better than Henry. "He is a sensational player, he is very strong, very quick and two-footed. He is the complete player and Liverpool would love him."
