Arsenal to snap up long-term target

It might be that Loic Remy will get a QPR escape route easier than he might have thought if the R’s are relegated, with The Mirror reporting that Arsenal are ready to pounce.

The Gunners were believed be interested prior to his move to Loftus Road however were not convinced by his injury record, however it seems Rangers have allayed many of their fears surrounding the player and they are now ready to trigger a relegation release clause.

It might have been a risky tactic to not take a gamble and stand by as the player joined their London rivals, however it could now prove to be a master stroke.

Remy who famously had his head turned by QPR by the temptations of basement football when he was on the verge of signing for Newcastle, has scored three goals since his arrival from France and it seems that Arsene Wenger has seen enough evidence to suggest that the player could cut it.

Signing players from relegated sides often doesn’t work, however you can’t exactly put much blame at Remy’s door for QPR’s inpending relegation and lets not forget he is not exactly your typical relegated footballer given the vast interest in him not so long ago.

Bwin premiership odds suggest the forward could be on the move this summer if the R’s fail to retain their Premiership status.

    There are plenty of Arsenal type players to be had in the coming transfer window. I besiege Wenger to stay out of the bargain basement shopping for which he is now well known -(check all the dead wood we are lending out all over the world…all bargain basement buys) – not your typical arsenal player. Let Newcastle sign him. We have the money lets go out there and sign some of the real Mccoys! By the way Arshravin was not a bargain basement buy and I retain my view that wenger should have persisted with the ruski and he would have given us much go forward momentum with skill – as opposed to speed only he would have added technique and cunning – unlike the overrated Walcott and the less than useful Gervhino
