There’s a report in the Metro today, that Arsenal have contacted Loic Remy’s agent Frederic Guerra, with a view to signing the French striker in the summer.
Loic Remy – in French colors
Arsenal need another out-and-out striker to support Olivier Giroud in the goal-scoring duties at the Gunners, and Loic has shown he can score goals in the Premier League, with 11 goals for Newcastle in only 22 appearances, and 6 goals for QPR is 14 appearances.
Newcastle shot themselves in the foot last month, of any chance of having Loic Remy sign permanently for the club, when we sold Yohan Cabaye to PSG and let everybody know that Newcastle United’s ambitions are limited at best in the Premier League.
In fact, those ambitions seem to finish in the top half of the league every season – how boring can you get? 🙁
Loic is an excellent player, and will get Champions League football at Arsenal, who have been a top four club in England every one of the 17 seasons French manager Arsene Wenger has been in charge of the famous London club.
And some Arsenal supporters still complain about the manager?
Pardew had this to say in January about Remy:
‘The plan was always that he would be on loan for the year and we had a deal with QPR that that would be the case.” ‘We would like to do it permanently but there is a long way until that happens.”
‘It is not quite as simple as meeting his release clause, as the player and his agents need to make sure it is right for the player and we have to honor that.’
But that statement was before Newcastle surprisingly sold Cabaye last month, and if Loic had any doubts about Newcastle’s ambitions, he will not have them now – and the Tyneside club has no chance of signing the 27 year-old Frenchman this summer.
That’s unfortunate – but there’s just no way he will sign for Newcastle when top clubs like Arsenal interested in him.
