Arsene Wenger refuses to rule out Loic Remy transfer

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has heightened speculation that Arsenal could bid for Loic Remy this summer, after praising the striker who is also being targeted by north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Sky Sports reports how the France international is being heavily linked with both London clubs when he returns to Queens Park Rangers upon the expiry of his season-long loan deal with Newcastle.

The Gunners boss revealed his admiration for the 27-year-old when asked specifically about rumours the player could arrive at the Emirates Stadium ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

"He is a good striker," commented Wenger. "But we are focused on the end of the season, not on strikers."

Wenger is known to be in the market for reinforcements in that department, as he looks to provide competition for Olivier Giroud in Arsenal's attack.

And, with 13 goals in just 22 starts for Alan Pardew's side this season, Remy would be a welcome addition to the squad.

Spurs are also monitoring his situation closely, as Tim Sherwood is keen to bring the QPR outcast to White Hart Lane.

However, having outlined his ambition to join a club playing in the Champions League, it would appear that Arsenal are favourites ahead of Tottenham to secure Remy's signature.
