Loic Remy transfer: QPR striker holds talks with Arsenal and Liverpool - reports
The Frenchman has been a long-term target for the Gunners
Friday 23 May 2014
Loic Remy has reportedly held talks with Arsenal and Liverpool over a transfer this summer.
The Queens Park Rangers striker, 27, impressed on loan at Newcastle United last season, scoring 14 goals in the Premier League for Alan Pardew's side.
According to the Daily Mail, a source close to the Frenchman has revealed that he has already started discussions with Arsenal and Liverpool.
Remy, who signed for QPR from Marseilles for £8m in January 2013, has been a long-term target for the Gunners, and was recently spotted at the Emirates Stadium watching the club's final home game of the season against West Bromwich Albion, which they won 1-0.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger joked after the match when he learnt of Remy's appearance: "Honestly, I've just been informed that Loic Remy was here and I didn't know," Wenger told reporters.
"So don't see any sign of us signing Remy [from that]. I hope he paid for his ticket!"
