Arsenal are close to completing a deal to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, according to The Metro

The French international, who featured at this summer's World Cup, has attracted interest from the Gunners for some time now, and it appears that the north London outfit are edging ever closer to bringing him to the Emirates.

Buy-out clause 

It appears that the Gunners can purchase the forward for as little as £8 million this summer, as he has a buy-out clause with Rangers. He will certainly prove great value for money for the Arsenal chief, as he's a proven Premier League scorer. 

Last term, on loan at Newcastle United, the Frenchman netted on 14 occasions in England's elite division. Despite a buyout clause being in place, a fee between QPR and Arsenal has yet to be completed, but it looks likely that the player will be heading to the Emirates in the near future. 

The Gunners will then have to agree personal terms with the 27-year-old, as they look to improve their forward line.

Aspirations

The forward will certainly be excited about a potential move to north London, with Champions League football on the horizon. The possibility of trophy success may also attract Remy to complete the switch. Remy will, however, be hoping to play on a regular basis, but first-team football may not be easy to come by at the Emirates next season. 

Competition 

The addition of Remy will be a major boost for Arsenal, with Yaya Sanogo currently only Olivier Giroud's main competitor for a first team spot in attack. Giroud, who is Remy's international teammate, may have to battle it out with the QPR man for a place in the starting XI in 2014/15. 

Along with Remy, many reports have suggested that Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez is also heading to the Emirates, in what would prove a marquee signing for Wenger. Gunners fans will certainly be excited by the prospect of Remy, Giroud and Sanchez leading their attacking line next term. 

Future 

It certainly looks set to be an exciting future at the Emirates, as the club embark upon a title challenge for next season. Wenger and Co. will be looking to prosper following their FA Cup success of last season. 

With additions imminent, Wenger's squad are starting to look like the real deal, and the club look set to be major competitors for league glory next season.
