Arsenal FC will make a move for French International Loic Remy if QPR are relegated this season.
It has been on three months since the 26-year-old striker joined QPR from French side Marseille and already he is being linked with a move away from the club. The French striker has settled down well in Premier League and has already scored five goals in eight matches so far. However, unfortunately for Harry Redknapp and Remy it seems like it won’t enough for QPR to avoid relegation this season.
QPR are currently in the 19th spot in the league table and more crucially seven points behind the safety zone. With six matches remaining this season, during which they will face the likes of Everton, Arsenal and Liverpool, it seems highly unlikely that the Hoops will gather enough points to complete what will be a miraculous escape.
QPR’s relegation will mean that the London club might face a mass exit of big names from the Loftus road. Loic Remy, who joined QPR after rejecting a move to Newcastle United in the last minute, is said to have a relegation clause in his contract, which means the club will have to let him leave if they drop down to the Championship and according to latest reports, Arsenal are looking to take advantage of that clause in the summer.
Arsenal have scouted Remy since his Marseille days, but were skeptical about making a move for the striker due to the injuries that has plagued his career so far. But now that the Frenchman has performed well in the Premier League, since his arrival from Ligue 1, the Gunners are looking to make a move for the forward.
It is believed that QPR will demand £6million for the French international and it will be a bargain for Arsene Wenger. The Gunners are expected to spend heavily in the transfer market next summer and Arsenal have already been linked with a number of players. Reports from Italy suggests that the Gunners are already in negotiation for Fiorentina talisman Stevan Jovetic and Wenger will look to sign another striker with Chamakh likely to leave the club in the summer.
The summer transfer window promises to be a very exciting one for the Gooners.
