Arsenal line up Loic Remy as Bayern Munich target Draxler

French striker could be lured to the Emirates as another team joins fight for Julian Draxler

Loic Remy

WITH Olivier Giroud in the doghouse are the Gunners lining up a striker who can take the heat off their wandering centre-forward. The Daily Mail thinks so and believes that Arsenal are in pole position in the race to sign QPR's French forward, Loic Remy.

The striker, who is on a season-long loan at St James' Park having failed to keep his parent club in the Premier League next season, could turn his back on Tyneside at the end of the campaign, even though Alan Padew is desperate to keep the man who has scored 11 goals in 22 outings for the Magpies so far this term. The Mail reports that the prospect of Champions League football with the Gunners could be too tempting to pass up for the 27-year-old, and even claims that Arsenal have made contact with Remy’s representatives to start thrashing out a deal.
