Arsenal target Loic Remy spotted in the Emirates crowd

Arsenal have been given a boost in their attempts to sign Loic Remy, after the striker was in attendance for the club's 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Gunners have been linked with QPR's striker for a while now, with the Championship club facing a difficult play-off to return to the top flight.

Newcastle United have temporarily hosted the 27-year-old's services this season after a loan from the West London outfit, but they aren't thought to be in the race to tie-up a permanent deal. 

Despite his stint in the crowd, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims he didn't invite the tatget. 

"I have just been informed Loic Remy was here. I honestly did not know,' he said following his side's win over the relegation threatened Baggies, "I hope he paid for his ticket."

Wenger will surely be looking to land a striker this summer after missing out on a whole host of targets last season, as Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez all could not be tempted into a move to North London.

The Gunners' relative lack of goals in comparison to main Premier League title contenders Liverpool and Manchester City is partly the reason why they are spectators, rather than contestants in the race. 

French striker Olivier Giroud is the only man to hit double figures in league action, but even he has faced criticism at some points.

Remy - another French international - has impressed on-loan with the Magpies this campaign. He has fired Alan Pardew's side to a top-10 finish with 14 strikes.

Harry Redknapp's Rs shelled out a club record £8 million last season, but the former Marseille man was unable to prevent the club from slipping to relegation and his reported £70,000 per-week wages were too steep for a second-tier club.

Remy will be hoping to shine at the World Cup this summer by adding to his four international goals.
