Newcastle urged to act fast in transfer tussle with Arsenal

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has urged Newcastle to move quickly or risk losing on-loan striker Loic Remy to the likes of Arsenal.

The French international is currently on a season-long deal at St James’ Park from Loftus Road, and has been attracting attention from some of the Premier League’s top sides thanks to his excellent displays.

Remy has hit 10 goals in 18 outings in the black and white shirt already this season, making him one of English football’s top marksmen.

Newcastle have already expressed a desire to make his loan move permanent at the end of the campaign, but the player himself has hinted that he is hoping to secure a switch to a Champions League side, further prompting talk of a transfer to Arsenal.

Redknapp – who was instrumental in bringing the ex-Marseille man to QPR – believes that Remy’s form means that the ‘Toon’ must push through an agreement soon or risk missing out on the forward:

“I don’t know what the deal is. You’d think they’d want to snap him up, wouldn’t you? If they don’t then someone else will,” hee is quoted by The Express.

“For what we got him for, he’s probably worth double that now. He’s scored goals in the Premier League again this year.”
