Sources claims Arsenal are close to signing Remy

Recently, sources have claimed that Gunners are to lodge a 15m bid for Newcastle striker Loic Remy. But an interesting situation is developing as Harry Redknapp has warned Newcastle who is Remy’s parent club that Newcastle can lose the striker if they continue to dither about the situation. As yet there aren’t any official reports about Arsenal’s bid for Remy but the tides will turn in Arsenal’s favor as soon as they lodge in an official bid because Newcastle are currently slow to react.

Magpies are yet to agree a deal with QPR that would see Remy remain at St James’ Park beyond the end of the season, much to the surprise of Redknapp.

He said: “I don’t know what the deal is. You’d think they’d want to snap him up, wouldn’t you? If they don’t then someone else will. For what we got him for, he’s probably worth double that now. He’s scored goals in the Premier League again this year.”

Arsenal have been credited with an interest in Remy but with the 27-year-old set to remain with Newcastle until the end of the season, any deal would do little to alleviate the Gunners current shortage up front.
