However, Redknapp insists that a loan deal is not on the agenda, highlighting the Championship side's desire to recoup close to the £8 million they paid Marseille for him midway through last season.
"I don’t think he [Remy] will go on loan," he told The Independent.
"I can’t see any sense in it. I don’t know why we’d pay £8 million and then loan him out.
"If he was to go, someone will have to pay for him. He has a buy-out clause, and we want our money back."
Remy has a release clause following QPR's relegation from the Premier League, and the former Tottenham boss - who bolstered his forward line with the signing of Charlie Austin on Thursday - is adamant that a fee must be paid if the 26-year-old is to leave the club.
