Arsenal manager identifies £6m summer striker target – board prefer Ivorian option

Published 7 Comments

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger faces a summer battle with the board over which striker to sign this summer.

The Daily Star claims Wenger is keen to bring Loic Remy to the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, and wants ‘the green light’ from the board to make a move.

However, the paper goes on to claim that the Gunners hierarchy want to bring Wilfried Bony to north London instead, with the Ivorian continuing to score goals for fun in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Indeed, £7million-rated Bony has scored 31 league goals this season, with only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of him in Europe’s major divisions.

Remy, meanwhile, made an instant impact after arriving at QPR, but was unable to keep them in the Premier League as Harry Redknapp’s side fell to relegation at Reading last weekend.

And, with a £6million relegation release clause in his contract at Loftus Road, the Frenchman will be another cheap option for the Arsenal boss.

Whether Wenger gets his way remains to be seen, but either player would add a much needed additional threat in attack for the Gunners, who have Olivier Giroud as their only senior central striker currently on the books.
