Arsenal have received a boost in the pursuit of transfer target Loic Remy, as his current club believe his form may end up making him too expensive to put together a permanent deal for him.

Remy has scored 12 Premier League goals this season for Newcastle, where is on loan from his parent club QPR, though Arsenal have recently been credited with an interest in him.

The Gunners have a shortage of top-quality options in the centre-forward role, where Olivier Giroud has been the only real option all season, despite youngster Yaya Sanogo getting two starts recently after recovering from injury.

Newcastle would have been hoping Remy's form this season could pave the way for a permanent transfer from QPR, but Toon manager Alan Pardew has now warned that playing so well could take the French striker out of their grasp.

"He is going to be hot property and will get a lot of headlines. His goals could make it harder to buy him. Perhaps I will leave him out of the next 11 games!" he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

Remy was the difference on Sunday as Newcastle overcame Aston Villa at St James' Park thanks to a goal from the 27-year-old in the 93rd minute.
