£10m Arsenal striker target reportedly favours Gunners move

Loic Remy

Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is reportedly desperate to join Arsenal this summer.

According to a report published by The Mirror, Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is desperate to join the Gunners this summer.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new striker, and the Frenchman has been linked with a number of stars since the January transfer window.

Loic Remy and Spanish U21 international Alvaro Morata were the two players that headed the list, and despite being linked to the Real Madrid starlet once again this summer, it appears Morata is set to stay in the Spanish capital for at least one more season.

A lack of a quality striker to challenge Olivier Giroud was amongst the reasons why Arsenal tailed off badly in the second half of last season, and Wenger will be sure not to start the coming season without having added to that area this summer.

Remy, 27, is an obvious option and his power, pace and excellent finishing ability would fit in well at the Emirates stadium.

His quality is renowned, and the 20 Premier League goals, for QPR and Newcastle United combined, he has scored since moving to England in January 2013 prove he has what it takes to succeed at the top level.

The French international has a reported release clause of £10million, and with Queens Park Rangers happy to sell him to get him off their incredibly high wage bill, it appears Arsene Wenger is the only person standing in the way of Arsenal concluding his transfer.
