Loic Remy

Kicking off this list is one of the Premier League’s fastest strikers – Newcastle loanee Loic Remy.

Since moving to England from Marseille in January 2013, the France international’s mix of netting prowess and blistering pace has seen him claim a prolific 20 goals in 40 Premier League appearances – including 16 in 24 for the Magpies this season.

The 27 year-old can operate as an out-and-out striker or on the wings, offering Arsene Wenger options in attack, and as well as having the legs to stretch play in the final third, has shown a knack for clinical one-touch finishes in the Premier League.

Furthermore, Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Remy is expected to leave Loftus Road this summer despite parent club QPR returning to the top flight, and the Guardian have mooted a release clause of just £10million.

Having more than proved his Premier League credentials over the last one-and-a-half seasons, suitors for the Frenchman aren’t in short supply. Newcastle want him permanently and Tottenham are also keen – but Arsenal’s Champions League status gives them a distinct advantage.
