Redknapp: French striker to choose Arsenal over Tottenham

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that star striker Loic Remy is desperate for Champions League football.

The France striker will return to Loftus Road next week after his post-World Cup holiday and is set to have numerous offers on the table.

Remy enjoyed a strong loan spell at Newcastle last season and Redknapp knows it will be tough for him to hang on to the 27-year-old who is wanted by the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle on a permanent deal.

Redknapp did admit that Remy is keen on Champions League football and so would prefer a switch to Arsenal over the likes of Tottenham or Newcastle.

“I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he’s really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year.

“If he goes to the right team, he’s capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season.”
