Arsenal are closing in on a deal to bring QPR striker Loic Remy to the Emirates, according to The Daily Mail.

The report has suggested that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is growing increasingly confident of landing the forward in the transfer window as he looks to bolster his front line for the 2014/15 campaign. Remy starred in the Premier League last term, as he struck 14 league goals on loan for Newcastle United. 

And, despite QPR's promotion to England's elite division, it appears that the striker will move on before the beginning of the campaign. 

Transfer push 

Reports have also indicated that the French international, who is currently involved in the Brazil World Cup, is ready to push through a summer move to north London. It appears that he's desperate to play Champions League football next season, and has made signing for the Gunners a priority. 

Newcastle United had been keen for their star striker from last season to stay on at the club for the long term, but their lack of European football has put them behind Arsenal in the race for the player's signature. 

Remy will now be hoping to complete a switch to the Emirates in the near future, with the player having a reported £8 million release fee in his contract with QPR.

Arsenal options 

The potential signing of Remy will come as a major boost for Arsenal fans, with the club in desperate need of reinforcements in the attacking area. Remy's international teammate, Olivier Giroud, was the club's No.1 striker last term, with Yaya Sanogo his only real back-up. 

Nicklas Bendtner, meanwhile, has left the Emirates following another disappointing season with the club. Remy, then, will hope to compete with Giroud for a place in the first team next season. 

Only Remy? 

Remy's potential signing may not be the only striker arriving at the Emirates this summer, with reports indicating that Wenger wants to bring another forward to the club. 

The likes of Alvaro Morata, Mario Mandzukic and controversial striker Mario Balotelli have all been linked with a move to the north London outfit in recent time. It remains to be seen, however, as to which players the Gunners boss targets in the near future. It certainly looks set to be a busy summer at the club, as they target future success.
