We would be very surprised if Loic Remy remains at QPR for next season, but any move away from the London club will probably come late in the transfer window, and with Alexandre Lacazette saying he wants to stay at Lyon at least for next season, it would appear our two striker targets at the moment are Loic Remy and Joel Campbell of Arsenal.
Loic Remy – could be used in swap deal
Loic’s move to Liverpool seemed to be cut and dried, but he failed his medical in Boston a couple of weeks ago, and there was news yesterday that Harry Redknapp could use Remy in part exchange to get some wanted players to QPR.
That also tells us that Remy may have already told QPR he wants to move away from the north London club this summer.
There was some news yesterday on the CaughtOffside web-site that Andros Townsend is now a QPR target, and the 23 year-old winger was a Newcastle target, before the transfer fee quoted for him was ridiculously high, for a player who still has to prove himself in the Premier League.
Two London clubs – Tottenham and Chelsea are said to be interested in taking Remy, but it’s difficult to know if there’s much truth in these reports.
And it seems things have stalled at the moment at Newcastle on the transfer front, and if Newcastle are to make more signings this summer, then it will be late in the window, and of course a lot of deals are made in the last few days August, and that could also be true this summer for Newcastle.
If Newcastle do sign Loic Remy, it will most likely be because there’s no better deal available for him, and it’s a good question whether we should sign players like Remy – who has been itching to get to a bigger club (than Newcastle) all summer.
And of the two strikers we are now linked with – Joel Campbell is probably our number one target now.
