Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police on suspicion of rape.

Remy, along with his cousin and another friend, is currently in custody in relation to an incident that occurred on 6 May in the west London area.

"Officers from Sapphire are investigating an allegation of rape which happened on 6 May in the west London area," read a statement released by the Metropolitan Police.

"The allegation was passed on to the MPS by Kent Police on 8 May after the 34-year-old female victim reported it to them on the previous day, 7 May. The victim alleges she was raped by the three men.

"On the morning of Wednesday, 15 May three men, [A] aged 26; [B] aged 23; [C] 22yrs, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape - they remain in custody at a west London police station."

The striker, signed from Marseille in January, has scored six goals in 12 appearances for the west Londoners and is seen as one of their most valuable commodities as QPR look to streamline their squad following their relegation to the Championship. 

Any potential sale of the player must now be in doubt due to the serious nature of the allegations he is facing.

Remy was one of the few shining lights in QPR's season but these allegations now cast a cloud over his immediate to long-term future.

The 26-year-old, who spent three years at Marseille after joining the club from Nice in 2010, is also a France international.

He made his international debut in 2009, and has gone on to score four goals in 18 appearances for Les Blues.
