Should Arsenal just pay Remy the £80k he wants?

There was a bit of head scratching among the Arsenal fans last week, after we had built ourselves up to expect a possible three new signings to celebrate on the say that the new Arsenal kits by PUMA were officially unveiled. The one we got, Alexis Sanchez, was a top class piece of transfer action, but I still wondered what was stopping the Gunners from announcing Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy alongside the Chile international.

Is Campbell the reason Arsenal are delaying Remy transfer?

It seemed at the start of the week that Loic Remy would have been announced as a new Arsenal player by now, along with his team mate at Newcastle last season Mathieu Debuchy. However, only the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona has been officially confirmed by the Gunners, so what is the hold-up?

Various reports are now appearing in papers like The Mirror and Metro about the likes of Newcastle, Liverpool and our north London rivals Tottenham, making enquiries to QPR about the French striker. Surely, if Arsenal had all but completed the transfer of Remy, then these other clubs would not be wasting their time, suggesting to me that Arsene Wenger has not made up his mind to bring the 27-year old to the Emirates, at least not yet.

Loic Remy also expected to sign for Arsenal in next few days

All Arsenal fans are expecting a bumper payout tomorrow (forever to be known as PUMA Day for the forseeable future!) as it has been confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is ready to be unveiled, plus the news that Martin Debuchy has passed his medical at the Emirates.

According to the Mirror, QPR’s prolific striker Loic Remy is expected to be the Third Man as they have reported that Arsenal are currently in talks with their neighbours to seal the deal for the French international.

Come on Arsenal…don’t let Spurs sign Remy!!

Loic Remy has not exactly hidden the fact that he would like to be an Arsenal player. He came to watch the Gunners play at the Emirates stadium towards the end of last season (honestly, guv, just to watch) and has spoken about how his role model was Thierry Henry.

Add to that the fact that he says he wants to be playing in the Champions League and his QPR boss Harry Redknapp admitted that there was a fairly small release clause in his contract, and most Arsenal fans are wondering why Arsene Wenger has not already signed the French striker up. Remy may get another chance to showcase his skills for France against Nigeria today, which might just tip the balance for him.

The long wait, by the player himself anyway, for a dream transfer to Arsenal could soon be over for the QPR striker Loic Remy. There are reports in the media that the Gunners are getting closer to making an official move for the pacy and prolific front man, but there are still one or two issues to resolve apparently.

It seems that the France international has done enough during his year-and-a-half in the Premier League to convince Arsene Wenger that he has got the quality to play for Arsenal. His goals to games ratio, while playing for two struggling sides in Newcastle and QPR, is certainly impressive, while his all round game shows the skill and pace that would have been welcome for us last season.

Latest transfer rumour suggests Arsenal and Remy have agreed terms

This could turn out to be an amazing day for Arsenal, with rumours and speculation pointing Arsenal fans to believe that Arsene Wenger really is back in business as the master of transfers. It is no more than we deserve really, after the exquisite torture that we have had to suffer for many a year.

We have already brought you two great bits of news, if they turn out to be true, about the return of Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona and the arrival of Serge Aurier from Toulouse (that has got to be the worst name ever for a sports team). But we are not done yet. Third time is the charm so they say.

We know the price now so should Arsenal snap up £8m Remy?

Now that his parent club have finished their season, Arsenal target Loic Remy should have a better idea of where he is going to be playing his football next season. And even though QPR managed to secure promotion back into the Premier League with a dramatic late winner against Derby County, his manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that there is very little he can do to hold on to the Frenchman.

Arsenal already negotiating Remy transfer with Liverpool lurking

Did you really believe Arsene Wenger’s claim that he knew nothing about Loic Remy watching from the Emirates stadium stands as Arsenal beat West Brom in their final Premier League home game of the season? Methinks he did protest too much.

The Gunners have been linked with the French striker for some time now, although I think that Wenger was a bit concerned that he might struggle to adapt to the rigours and physicality of the Premier League. But in half a season with parent club QPR, followed by a slightly injury disrupted year with Newcastle United, Remy has established himself as a quality BPL front man and so it seems that the Arsenal boss is now ready to sign him up.

So Mr. Wenger, why was Loic Remy at the Arsenal game?

According to Arsene Wenger, it was a complete coincidence that Loic Remy was at the Emirates stadium to watch Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion today, honest guv. The Frenchman was asked about the QPR, Newcastle and France striker today, with the media latching on to his presence as a possible sign that Arsenal would be signing him this summer.

Wenger was reported by Sky Sports as saying, “Honestly I have just been informed that Loic Remy was here, I didn’t know. So don’t see any sign of us signing Loic Remy in that. I hope he has paid for his ticket! No [I didn’t invite him], that’s why I tell you I have not invited him.”

Why Remy is still on Arsenal transfer list?

Sometimes in football, especially when it is transfer business, what is not said can be just as important as what is said. The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is an acknowledged master of deception, deflection and misdirection when it comes to his own transfer dealings, which is why many papers like Metro have taken his recent words to mean that Loic Remy is still a Gunners target.

Wenger said, “He is a very good striker. But at the moment we focus on the end of the season, not strikers.”

Arsenal take 1st step towards HUGE summer of signings

Arsenal fans are understandably confused and angry about why Arsene Wenger has done so little in the last two transfer windows, especially after the recent financial figures showed the Club doing really well and having lots of money in the bank.

Apart from smashing the Arsenal transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil on the summer deadline day, Wenger has spent less money than you would expect from a struggling lower division side, but it does look as if this year will be the last one that causes us to vent our frustrations as our rivals spend money and we do nothing.

Remy shows again why Arsenal are keen and Pardew concerned

The speculation about Arsenal and the striker situation is not going to go away anytime soon. Even if the young French striker Yaya Sanogo and Olivier Giroud score 10 goals each before the end of the season, Arsene Wenger is expected to strengthen his striking options in the summer.

One player who is regularly linked with a move to the Emirates, Loic Remy, did his chances no harm at the weekend. The 27-year old’s well taken late winner put him on 12 goals from 22 Premier League games and his almost single-handedly keeping his team in the running for a Europa League place.
