Arsenal consider £12m Remy summer swoop

Published Add your comment

Loic Remy has been deadly in front of goal for Newcastle United this season, attracting the attention of Europe's top clubs.

With Arsenal currently in the market for a new striker and Remy, who is currently on loan from Queens Park Rangers, this is a deal that could be made reality in the summer of 2014.

Arsene Wenger has been a longtime admirer of the French striker and has been consistently been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in the past.

Remy has played the majority of his football in Ligue 1, but recently moved to QPR last January with hope to keep the London club in the Premier League.

Since he was unable to help QPR stay in the top flight he moved to Newcastle in the summer in hope he could force his way into the French side for next summer's World Cup finals.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has refused to be drawn upon the possibility of making Remy's stay at St.James Park permanent, but has not ruled it out.

It is clear that Remy wishes to stay in the Premier League beyond this season and because of his unhappiness with QPR, it's unlikely he will want a return to the Championship side, even if they gain promotion back to the Premier League.

Arsenal clearly have many targets in their sights for the void in their striker department to be filled.

Arsenal will reportedly make a bid for Remy in the opening weeks of the summer transfer market, to prove that they are prepared to add quality in their search for silverware.

Remy could take the number 14 shirt in the summer as Theo Walcott's future remain, with the England forward linked with free-spending Monaco, because of the fierce competition he faces to cement a place in Wenger's side.
