We have been harping on about this deal for some time now.
Many Arsenal fans want to see Arsene Wenger spending a lions share of the transfer kitty on a top striker this summer.
But we believe that Arsenal need more than just one new forward in the close season and QPR’s front man Loic Remy totally fits the bill as an excellent new squad member at a bargain price.
Reports today suggest that the Arsenal target is absolutely desperate for a move to The Emirates this summer. Remi scored 14 goals in 27 games for Newcastle last season and was one of the standout performers in the team. The Telegraph states:
Loic Remy is desperate for Arsenal to firm up their interest in him and sign the striker this summer.
Tottenham are also chasing Remy, but the Frenchman wants to play in the Champions League and Arsenal is his preferred destination.
Remy represents an easy deal to do for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger because there is a £10million buy-out clause in his Queens Park Rangers contract.
It is an easy deal indeed. Remy is quick, precise and athletic. There is very little for Arsenal not to like about this guy.
He definitely offers something different to Olivier Giroud in terms of dynamism and pace. And his signing would still leave Wenger free to splurge on another big name.
We can’t understand what would be holding up the deal if Arsenal really do want to do it.
With the World Cup just around the corner anything can happen in the next few weeks so, for Arsenal’s sake, the deal really needs to get done as soon as possible.

Arsenal fans: good business?
