Arsenal hold talks with QPR striker Loic Remy over potential summer move

Remy

French forward Loic Remy could be the subject of a summer bid from Arsenal, according to reports.

The Queens Park Rangers striker spent last season on loan at Newcastle where he scored thirteen goals in 25 league appearances for the Magpies.

Reports suggest that the France international’s contract contains a release clause of £8 million – and an Arsenal bid is in the offing.

Arsene Wenger’s side are in the market for an experienced striker to complement Olivier Giroud upfront and have already identified several other targets including Bayern Munich’s Mario Mandzukic.

Remy set the transfer rumour mill into overload after he was invited into Bacary Sagna’s box at Emirates Stadium for the Gunners’ match against West Brom earlier in the season.

27-year-old Remy is set to represent France at the Brazil World Cup this summer and has held talks with several other Premier League clubs including Liverpool.

    Sure Arsenal need striker if they want to win more trophy next season, but to me loic remy isnt the right striker Arsenal need. Arsena need striker like, luis suarez, diago costa, benzema. Not loic remy. Will not change anything. I remain grateful to all arsenal players, and arsene wenger. Gunners for life

    Remy would be a bargain at 8 million. He has pace, can play out wide if required and he is used to scoring goals in the BPL. Hope we re-sign Fabregas(CM), Griezmann(LW), Aurier(RB), Schiederlin(DM), Schar(CB), Morata(CF), Marshall(GK).
    Balance the books by selling Podolski(10m), Vermaelen(12m) and Arteta(8m).

    Worth the bet, understand that his release clause is only 8m.
    He already scored 16 goals with Newcastle, just imagine the number of goals he can score with the support of Ozil and Ramsey. Should be Henry v2.0

    I cant say Remy would be a bad buy. He was at the thick of things when Newcastle was playing well in the 1st half of the season. But I think if we get Remy, we should also look at getting a striker who is around 20-22 years old in the mould of Morata or some young player and along with them make good use of the remaining transfer kitty to strengthen the DM/RB and other areas it should be great.
    I personally think we will get more goals this season. We missed walcott in the 2nd half and I am sure he will join the 20+ goals next season if he stays fit along with Giroud. We need someone to complement Giroud and Remy should be a decent buy

    Loic Remy is a good striker yeah and I think that Benzema is too expensive not worth 30 m£+. I would go for Bony or Mandzukic instead of Remy or Benzema.
