Queens Park Rangers striker and Tottenham target Loic Remy has his heart set on a move to Spurs' bitter rivals Arsenal, according to the Express. 

The French international forward, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle, is unlikely to play again for parent club QPR despite their promotion to the Premier League. 

Remy impressed in his stint at St. James Park last term, scoring 14 goals in 27 appearances, and has now attracted the interest of some of the league's heavyweights.

North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal are both chasing the former Marseille man, with the 27-year-old preferring a move to the Emirates as the Gunners are able to offer Champions League football.

The Frenchman will be representing his country at the upcoming World Cup in Brazil this month and is rumoured to have a £10 million buyout clause in his contract, making him an affordable target as a proven goalscorer.

Tottenham are looking to strengthen up front after Roberto Soldado failed to impress in his debut season at White Hart Lane, with former Arsenal man Emmanuel Adebayor providing their main threat in front of goal.

However, the Europa League side look set to lose out to bitter local rivals Arsenal, who are looking for some extra firepower to accompany Remy's countryman Olivier Giroud.

If Wenger's side do manage to secure the services of Remy, they will be hoping he can keep up his impressive scoring record in the Premier League, with the striker averaging a goal every other game in the competition having scored 20 times in 40 appearances.
