Loic Remy

Arsenal will only turn to Newcastle United’s on-loan striker if they fail to land other targets ... if you believe the rumours in North London,

Remy has told his QPR bosses that he intends to leave the club at the end of the season as he looks for a club with a bigger stature than QPR or Newcastle United.

Although Arsenal remain a viable destination, a report relayed by Frichajes.net indicates that they will only turn to Remy if they fail to land other targets.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic in recent weeks, while they are also expected to go back in for Schalke’s Julian Draxler.

Mandzukic is widely expected to leave Bayern this summer with the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund imminent.

Draxler was subject of a winter bid from the Gunners, although they were reluctant to meet the £37 million asking price.

Remy is available for £12 million, and when asked about acquiring Remy, Wenger played it safe, saying, “He is a very good striker. But at the moment we focus on the end of the season, not strikers.”

The non-answer answer only added to the speculation that Remy might be donning the red shirt of the Gunners next season.

Newcastle would love to be able to keep him but he’s a free agent this summer and he wants to play in the Champions League next season.
