Bayern Munich join Premier League battle for Newcastle ace

Bayern Munich are the latest side to have entered the battle for Newcastle’s on-loan striker Loic Remy, according to reports from The Mirror.

The French hit-man is currently enjoying a season-long spell at St James’ Park from QPR, but is expected to make a permanent move in the coming months even if the Super Hoops win promotion back to the top tier.

Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham and Newcastle themselves are rumoured to be in the hunt for his signature, but now Bayern are also in the running.

The Bundesliga champions are keen to tie up a £15m swoop as soon as possible as they plot to snap up a replacement for the unsettled Mario Mandzukic.

The Croatian is rumoured to be looking to leave the Allianz Arena with Robert Lewandowski due to arrive on a free transfer ahead of 2014/15.

Remy would likely play a bench role at the club, but he has already admitted that a Champions League side would be his preferred destination.

Arsenal look to be his most likely Premier League suitors, with the Gunners having been linked with the versatile forward for some time.
