Arsenal face competition from Bayern Munich to sign Remy

Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy.

The Daily Mirror suggest the Frenchman, who is currently enjoying a season-long loan spell at Newcastle, is a £15million target for Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich.

News of Bayern Munich’s interest in Remy will come as a major blow to Arsenal as they were hoping to entice the 27-year-old to the Emirates Stadium with minimum fuss.

However the lure of the Allianz Arena and working under the magnificent Guardiola could seriously rival Arsenal’s bid to sign the former Marseille man at the end of the season.

Remy is attracting widespread interest due to his outstanding goalscoring record for Newcastle over the course of the current campaign.

The France international has scored 13 goals in 25 Premier League games for a side which has struggled to pick up results in the second half of the season.

Wenger had identified Remy as the man to challenge Olivier Giroud for the lone striker role at Arsenal after being notified of QPR’s willingness to sell the Newcastle loanee in the summer.

The Arsenal boss may now have to enter a bidding war with Guardiola to win the battle to sign Remy or hope the forward chooses to join several of his compatriots in north London.
