Arsenal are considering entering the race for Loic Remy's signature after positive talks with the player's representatives, according to the Metro.

Arsene Wenger is desperate to add to his striker options at the Emirates but failed to do so in the January transfer window. That has left the Gunners boss with just Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo to choose from.

Arsenal are keen to rectify the situation in the summer and see Remy as an ideal candidate.

The 27-year-old has had a fruitful spell at St James' Park this season, where he is currently on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers.

If the west London club fail to win promotion back to the Premier League Remy will have to be sold and Arsenal are keeping an eye on the situation. They are even reported to have made contact with Remy's representatives to open preliminary talks of a transfer.

Remy has so far scored 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Magpies and Alan Pardew is understandably keen to tie the French international to a permanent deal.

QPR are reported to be seeking around £9million for Remy in an attempt to recoup the £8m they paid to bring him from Marseille last January.
