According to unconfirmed reports coming from Sky Sports Radio QPR striker Loic Remy has agreed personal terms with Arsenal for a proposed transfer to the North London giants.
The long term Arsenal target recently reiterated his desire to join a club playing Champions League football for the forthcoming season. The Frenchman, who is owned by QPR, spent last season on loan at Newcastle and scored an impressive 14 goals in 24 appearances, he also chipped in with three assists and two man of the match performances.
The Frenchman who has been selected in the 23 man France squad will be on the plane to Brazil this summer to compete with compatriot and current Arsenal target man Olivier Giroud and there is the possibility that they could be lining up along side each other come the start of the new season. He will likely line up only third choice behind Benzema and Giroud at the finals in Brazil although his deadly finishing capabilities would be welcomed by the majority of the Arsenal faithful.
It is rumoured that QPR would only require £12m in exchange for the 27 year old’s services and this represents a very achievable and Arsene Wenger esque bargain purchase if the deal was to go thorough. It is expected that any possible deal would not go through prior to the World Cup although it is good to hear that Arsene Wenger is learning from past mistakes and attempting to move early this summer in order to avoid a last minute trolly dash on deadline day.
It is currently unclear how reliable the information presented on Sky Sports Radio is but the line has been picked up by various media outlets which could lend some weight to the story.
Worth keeping an eye on how this one pans out.
