Football Direct News is reporting that French International striker Loic Remy, who is on loan at Newcastle for the season, has held another meeting with Arsenal.
Loic Remy – another meeting with Arsenal reported
It’s being reported that this is a final meeting to simply decide on the final details of the move, and it’;s been reported for a while now that Arsenal is Remy’s first choice of club, when he will move on from QPR in the summer.
Remy is said to have first met with Arsenal last month, and the Gunners let Remy and his agent know of their plans and ambitions for next season, and we assume Remy was impressed.
Loic has said he wants to join a top European club when his loan spell is up at Newcastle, and he’s been in great form for us with 13 goals in 26 appearances for the Magpies.
It’s been a case of lost opportunities for Newcastle with Remy, as were after the striker back in 2008, before he moved from St Etienne to Marseilles the following year.
And then sixteen months ago Newcastle thought they had signed the striker from Marseilles, but he changed his mind and joined QPR, who were bottom of the league at the time.
QPR stayed bottom and they were relegated last May, which is why he then came on loan to Newcastle United last August, but Loic wants to join a bigger club than Newcastle – and Arsenal are certainly that.
But there has been news that Bayern Munich, who were sensationally beaten 4-0 and basically out-played (yes out-played) by a resurgent Real Madrid side last night in Munich, are now said to be interested in signing Remy.
Remy has already thanked Newcastle and their fans for supporting him this season, after a rape charge hung over his head from last May, but he was completely cleared of that earlier this year.
Now if we can only get Loic to score a hat-trick against Cardiff City this Saturday, to break that six game losing streak. 😀
