Arsenal are the overwhelming favourites to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy after the France international was spotted at the Emirates Stadium for the Gunners' final game of the season against West Brom.

SkyBet have Arsenal priced at 4/6 to sign the 27-year-old before this summer's transfer window closes on September 2. Next on the list are Everton (6/1), Bayern Munich (12/1) and Tottenham (12/1).

Remy spent the season on loan with Newcastle United, scoring 14 Premier League goals in 26 appearances, but the Magpies are a distant fifth favourites to sign the talented striker at 14/1. Newcastle had hoped to secure Remy's services on a permanent basis, but it seems that he is determined to join a club competing in the Champions League.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking for a new striker to provide competition for Olivier Giroud, an international teammate of Remy, after allowing Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner to leave the club this summer. However, it's believed that the Gunners will need to pay around £15m for the ex-Marseille striker, who has also been strongly linked with Arsenal's bitter local rivals Tottenham.

Remy is reluctant to return to QPR, who he scored six goals in 14 appearances for during the 2012/13 campaign, even if they secure promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs this month.

Arsenal fans: would Remy be a good signing for the Gunners? Or should Wenger be aiming higher?
