Arsenal given the green light to make a move for QPR striker Loic Remy
Arsenal have reportedly been given the green light to make an £8 million bid for French striker Loic Remy, who has been linked heavily with other clubs, according to the Express.
The French hitman is in hot demand after his brilliant season under Alan Pardew at Newcastle. The QPR striker was on loan at the Tyneside club for the 2013/14 season and his lethal form has attracted the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool, who are pursuing Remy.
Despite QPR’s promotion to the Premier League, Remy is keen to move to a bigger club and is already planning a move elsewhere this summer with a number of clubs keeping tabs on him.
Reports in France suggested that Tottenham Hotspur had been the first club to make contact with QPR over Remy, who has a £8m buy-out clause, but the French international is keeping his options open.
Remy stated recently that he is looking to impress at this summers World Cup.
He said: Remy said: “The World Cup is a showcase for me. Newcastle want to buy me. I do not know if I’ll stay there. I’m at a turning point in my career. It can push forward or stagnate.”
