QPR man Remy wants Arsenal summer transfer

In January, when Arsenal fans were pulling their hair out about the deafening silence from the Emirates, the Gunners were linked with every man and his dog, it seemed. A large number of the rumours concerned strikers, as Arsenal were dominating games but missing plenty of chances and both Giroud and Podolski were a little slow to adapt to the Premier League.

Loic Remy was one of the players who regularly popped up in these rumours, but Arsene Wenger kept his powder dry, only signing Nacho Monreal from Malaga on the last day because of an injury to Kieran Gibbs. When QPR then signed 26-year old Remy, there was more frustration from Gooners, especially when he adapted quickly to the Premier League and started banging the goals in.

The French international looked good against us yesterday, but he would rather have been playing in red and white, according to the Mirror and is hoping that Wenger will sign him in the summer. The paper reports that he has made it clear to friends, whatever that means, that his club of choice is the Gunners.

Wenger is known to be an admirer of the French forward, but maybe had concerns about him in the English Premier League. Five goals in 11 games, including an absolute stunner, have shown he has what it takes and he will be available for just £6 million thanks to a relegation escape clause.

That seems like a bargain for Remy, but is he the quality that Arsenal need to push us on to success. I am not so sure. I think he would be an excellent squad player, especially for that money, but I would like Wenger to aim higher. What do you think Gooners?

    would be a good squad player, but shouldn’t be a starting XI player for us and I can’t see him wanting to sit on the bench

    Benteke. Villa. Audemyang and bony are all better options personally I think bony is the one an he will shine light on gervinho too it’s a double whammy, but any of these plus jovetic will be great

    Not as good as Giroud. There’s a reason that Giroud gets picked for France and Remy doesn’t. Its not even like Remy has set the world on fire either. He scored one goal in France this season and 4 in England. No thanks.

    Would be a handy replacement for Arshavin I reckon at that price. With the quality of Arsenal’s passing he could achieve a bit more than at his previous clubs plus he has a lil epl experience now. I hope for a better quality signing as well but knowing Arsene, he will sign someone that isnt on our radar.

    he would be good squad player but we already have too many of those. we need someone we can rely on just like rvp to get us goals. if bayern do buy lewandowski i think if push we could get Gomez. also think Dzeko would be a good choice ( not sure about his wages though), i know many want to see jovetic but i dont know if wenger will spend 30 mil on him. also with the problem lescott is having in city, don’t you think he could strengthen our team when we loose squid and djourou? every team needs atleast 4 cd’s.

    Giroud and Podolski are better. I reckon we should just give Miyaichi, Joel Campbell, Aneke, Gnabry, Akpom or Eisfeld a go as they are all young and used to the Arsenal style, aswell as being full of potential, unlike Remy

    Well,from yesterday’s match I think Loic Remy will be a hit if he comes to Arsenal because I saw a man who is strong and ruthless in attack. QPR midfielders were nowhere to be found and yet he was all over the pitch trying to work something out. He is clinical . We need that guy but we need Jovetic too and Gervinho can please go. Let no one think that a player’s price is how good he is. This Remy could be better than Cavani and falcao… I still remember how gunners are asking why we didn’t buy Michu… He only cost swansea 2M … So its not about the price and paperrazzi hype. When you’re good, you’re good.

    Why I don’t want us to sign Remy. He has done very well in his short period in the premier league, some people are saying he is the new Henry. He is not he is 26 and Henry was about 22 when he joined Arsenal and started performing at around 24. But he would do well for us although any realistic fan knows he is not World Class and will never be. If we are a club want to be winning the Premier League and Champions League regularly we need World Class players. My preferred option is David Villa a better finisher.

    If we were smart as a club we could capture some good quality signings for cheap.

    Michael Essien – Free
    David Villa – 12 million
    Micah Richards 8 – million
    Arjen Robben – 12-15 million
    Fabregas – 20
    Jovetic – 25
    Adler/Cesar – 3-5 million

    The benefit of buying a proven solid DM like Essien is he is mature, experienced, hungry for games and has recently done well for Real Madrird.

    Arjen Robben although many accept his attitude is not the greatest but he is a top class talent that can’t be disputed. He has brilliant close ball control and a deadly left for as Barcelona and Manchester United can testify in the Champions League. Big performer ! He’s on his way out of Bayern as Guardiola takes over and Isco is believed to take his place, a fee of 12 million has been offered by Galatasaray but Robben quickly dismissed those claims but if Arsenal were to come in and offer a new exciting project i’m sure the Dutch International would relish another opportunity in the Premier League as he has previously professed. He is better than Gervinho.

    Reports going around in Spain David Villa has agreed a 12 million pre-contract agreement to join us in the summer. I don’t know how true this is, although it is evident the Spaniard has been getting little game time and he has been taking English lessons.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen Jovetic play but he is not an out and out striker and therefore can’t play upfront alone in a 4-5-1. Plus if your going to put David Villa in the squad why not have him upfront and alongside Jovetic that could work very well. Or have them interlink with Podolski or Walcott as our three forwards.

    I still pick jovetic over him. For those of you who says jovetic isn’t an out and out striker. He doesn’t need to. We need a player who can involved in build up play. And playing as a false nine. Because we have giroud for a central striker when we need a plan b. With jovetic i think Walcott will thrive in his advance right position. Or podolski in advance left. Although i don’t think we should use both wingers at the same time.

    this guy can be better than the giroud in many aspects if he join arsenal.did you see the shot that he made at arsenal goal? it was a beautiful shot that was curved to the post not direct shot to the goalkeeper.this show he is an intelligent play who is always thinking before kicking the ball.with the coaching from wenger the guy can be come a star.i do not think he can waste chances the way giroud have done this season.let the giroud hand over the t-shirt to Remy.

    He’s had a lot of injury problems over the years and I would risk it. If Wenger does go for another big, powerful striker, I would prefer Benteke, who is a very similar player, but he’s younger and I think he can create more of his own chances than Remy. Remy is just the cheap option which Wenger always considers, but I really hope he resists the tempatiation

    Great business.

    Podolski is not right for us maybe this guy will be.
