Arsenal closing in on French World Cup star

Arsenal are ready to press ahead with their summer move for QPR’s Loic Remy, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The forward has emerged as the Gunners’ top target in recent months on the back of an impressive campaign on loan at Newcastle, yet progress towards a deal has been slow.

Remy was pictured at the Emirates Stadium at the end of last season, yet since then reports have emerged that bitter rivals Tottenham are also in the battle.

However it is now understood that Arsenal’s interest is once again serious and that confidence of getting Remy in before the new campaign is high.

The 27-year-old is known to have an £8m release clause in his contract at QPR, who are resigned to the fact that they will be unable to persuade him to return to Loftus Road to boost their own Premier League ambitions.

Remy himself is thought to see Arsenal as his best option, with Spurs unable to offer him Champions League football.

The versatile attacker netted an impressive 14 goals for Newcastle last term, making 24 starts for the Magpies.
