Arsenal fear repeat of Suarez mistakes in Loic Remy bid

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal bosses will make sure they study Loic Remy's QPR contract in fear of repeating the mistakes which lost them Luis Suarez, accoridng to the Sun.

The French international, who is on-loan at Newcastle United, is being targeted by the Champions League chasing Gunners who are looking to bolster their striking options for next season.

They attempted the same last season too, however, interest in the likes of Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain came to nothing.

A bid was also made for Luis Suarez and the North Londoners believed they had triggered a minimum release clause in the Uruguayan's Liverpool contract by offering £1 over the £40 million asking price. 

However they were wrong and Suarez has gone on to become the Premeir League's top scorer this season as the Reds chase a title that is now beyond Arsenal.

Understandably they are keen not to repeat the same mistakes this time around.

The player's agent has told the club that a clause in the 27-year-old's contract will allow them to pick up the former Marseille man for around £10 million.

Rather than take that as gospel, Arsenal are keen to confirm this through other avenues before making a botched bid again.

Championship outfit and fellow Londoners QPR will be looking to get the £8 million man off their wage bill as they face a play-off fight to return to the top flight.

Remy has impressed at St James' Park this year after bagging 14 Premier League goals.
