French international strike star Loic Remy has his heart set on a £10m move to Arsenal and will turn down the advances of any other side to complete that deal this summer, according to The Mirror.

Remy is available in a cut-price deal thanks to a release clause in his contract with Queens Park Rangers and there are plenty of interested suitors, thanks to a 14-goal season on loan at Newcastle United.

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have been mulling over the merits of making an approach for Remy but the 27-year-old is desperate to play for Arsene Wenger next season, leading the Gunners boss to believe he is in pole position to seal his first summer signing after the World Cup.

First and foremost the versatile forward's attention is focused on delivering the goods for France at this summer's South American showpiece, if he gets the opportunity to play.

Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud partnered Remy in attack during France's most recent friendly against Paraguay, a partnership Gunners fans could well see at the Emirates next season.

Wenger has previously turned down the chance to sign Remy, as recently as last summer thanks to off-field indiscretions, but has been convinced by his efforts for Newcastle that the pacy hotshot is a squad player worth gambling on.

Liverpool's recent £4.5m move for Rickie Lambert has also seen Reds boss Brendan Rodgers cool his interest in another proven Premier League commodity, with the ball now very much in Wenger's court if he wants to secure Arsenal's first major summer signing.

Arsenal fans are expecting at the very least four top additions to their squad during the close season, with a new forward very high on that list of priorities to take the pressure off Giroud.

Wenger has a reported £100m transfer warchest to spend wisely before next season arrives, but Remy would represent a prudent and sensible purchase on his list of transfer targets and also a deal that can be completed very quickly.
