Arsenal Transfer News: Are Gunners Interested in Loic Remy?

Dan TalintyreSenior Analyst IIJanuary 11, 2013

Arsenal have reportedly joined the chase for Marseille striker Loïc Rémy, as reports have surfaced about a possible move over the winter transfer window.

The French international was believed to be the subject of interest from both Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers earlier in the transfer window. Now it seems that the North London club have also kept up their interest in the 26-year-old, according to the latest report from The Independent.

Arsenal have joined the race to sign Loïc Rémy from Marseille in a deal that could cost them £10 million.

Arsène Wenger has identified the 26-year-old striker as the forward his side needs to add quality and goals to their attempt to catch Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea and finish in the Premier League top four.

Sources in France tonight insisted strong interest from Arsenal makes them favourites to land the France international.

Rémy, who grew up an Arsenal fan, has not ruled out the possibility of staying with Marseilles for the rest of the season but the interest from the north London club is sure to have turned his head.
