Newcastle United striker Loic Remy has made it clear that he has no intention of staying at St James' Park next season, paving the way for a move to Arsenal by telling France Football that he wants to join one of Europe's biggest teams this summer.

Remy has attracted attention of the Gunners thanks to a strong first full season in the Premier League on loan at Newcastle United, scoring 13 times in 23 appearances.

The 27-year-old is still owned by Queens Park Rangers and is widely reported to have a release clause of £8m, leaving Newcastle with a fierce battle to secure the French international on a permanent basis once his loan deal expires.

As uncertainty continues to reign with regards to Remy's future the forward has attempted to clarify the situation, declaring that his primary target remains to land a move to one of Europe's big five teams on a long-term basis next term.

He revealed: “I’ll play for one of Europe’s big five [next season], or a very big club at least."

Arsenal and any other potential suitors may want to get a deal wrapped up before this summer's World Cup finals, with Remy a strong candidate to feature for France in football's biggest showpiece event.

While a release clause protects Remy's price a strong performance for France at the tournament will no doubt ramp up interest, as Europe's wealthiest clubs eye up quality additions during the close season.
