Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal for Loic Remy. The Gunners are moving closer to completing a deal that could see the player move to London for as little at £8 million, reports The Metro.
A deal between QPR and the Gunners is said to be nearing completion, although the Frenchman is yet to agree personal terms at the Emirates.
According to reports, Arsenal face competition to secure his signature from Newcastle, but they may have the advantage in that they are playing in The Champions League and will be challenging for other honours next season.
It seems certain that Loic Remy will leave QPR this summer. The clinical finisher joined from Marseille in 2013, having previously played for clubs including Lyon and Lens.
The 27 year old striker was then loaned to Newcastle for the 2013/14 season where he scored 14 goals in just 26 league appearances.
The signing of Remy might well signal the end of Arsenal’s transfer dealing for the summer. However, if all goes to plan they could well have completed a number of excellent signings that would certainly allow them to compete for The Premier League title along with other trophies.
Although the North London side managed to end their trophy drought by beating Hull in The FA Cup final, they still had a disappointing end to their league campaign. After leading the competition for much of the season they tailed off towards the end of the season.
Many pundits pointed to their lack of a dedicated defensive midfielder and a world class striker. A lack of pace up front was also pinpointed as a major flaw.
However, with the club on the verge of signing winger Alexis Sanchez and right back Mathieu Debuchy along with reports of a possible move for Lars Bender, it could mean that Loic Remy would provide the final piece of the jigsaw if all the other deals go through.
