Newcastle loanee ready to make Arsenal move

Loic Remy is ready to reject interest from Tottenham and Newcastle to seal a summer switch to Arsenal.

The France international is currently on a season long loan at St James’ Park from QPR, where he has been impressive.

13 goals in 23 Premier League games for the 27-year-old has led to speculation that the Magpies are ready to make his stay a permanent one, while Spurs are also rumoured to be looking at him.

But Arsenal have long been linked with Remy, and a source close to the player told the Sunday People that the striker will choose the Gunners:

“If Arsenal want him that’s where he will go. Where else would be big fan of Thierry Henry want to go?”

QPR value their man at around £15m, but it remains unclear as to whether or not Arsenal will be willing to meet such demands.

Tottenham on the other hand are understood to have the cash in place to tie up a deal, but a lack of Champions League football – which looks likely – next season at White Hart Lane could be decisive, while Newcastle are unlikely to fund such a spend on a single player.

Remy moved to England in January 2013 as a part of QPR’s mega spend as they looked to avoid relegation.

Despite impressing individually, the forward was unable to keep the Super Hoops up, and sealed a loan move back to the top tier when they slid into the Championship.
