Arsenal are readying an offer worth £12million in order to take Loic Remy to the Emirates this summer, according to the Metro.
The paper claims that the Gunners are prepared to firm up their interest in the Frenchman once he returns to QPR following his impressive loan spell at Newcastle United. It’s believed that the Tyneside club are desperate to retain him on a permanent deal, but the allure of Arsenal, and the likelihood of Champions League football, should be enough to force his decision in favour of the north Londoners.
The report claims that the £12million offer made by Arsenal is a take it or leave it type deal, and so QPR may be forced into answering quickly to confirm that they get the player off their wage bill. Remy, who has bagged 13 Premier League goals this year, is also a reported target for Manchester United and Liverpool, and so Arsene Wenger’s swift movements may have been made in order to ensure that he gets the striker he wants ahead of his team’s closest rivals.
The strikers position is most definitely in need of a revamp at the Emirates, with Olivier Giroud the only recognised frontman on their books.
