Arsenal planning summer swoop for Remy from QPR

We know that Arsene Wenger doesn’t mind a few French players in his Arsenal team, and there could soon be one more. Apparently the Gunners boss is seriously thinking about signing the 26-year old French international if QPR are relegated, which seems increasingly likely.

According to the Sunday People, Wenger was considering making his move for the Marseille striker in January, but concerns over his fitness persuaded him not to push the transfer through. Harry Redknapp was desperate for firepower, though, and took the chance on Remy, and he has been vindicated with four Premier league goals in six games from the striker.

There is a release clause in Remy’s contract with QPR which means he will be available for just £6 million if they are relegated, so Wenger will be keeping a close eye on Remy and his fitness until the end of the season, but Arsenal fans are hoping for a player with a bigger and better reputation.

Having been linked with strikers of the calibre of David Villa from Barcelona, Stevan Jovetic and Robert Lewandowski, will Gooners feel they are being let down if it is another Ligue 1 striker who comes in to boost the Arsenal attack?
