Arsenal to pounce on Loic Remy if QPR are relegated

The Express reports that Arsenal are planning a cut-price summer swoop for striker Loic Remy if QPR fail to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Manager Harry Redknapp signed Remy for £8m from Marseille in January, and the France international has scored three goals in six games.

His £75,000-a-week contract includes an escape clause which would allow him to leave if they go down, which the 26-year-old would be likely to do in such circumstances.

That means he would be available for about £4m and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who has made enquiries for the striker before, is heading the queue as he looks to rebuild his side.

The Gunners on-loan forwards Marouane Chamakh, Nicklas Bendtner and Ju-Young Park are all expected to be sold in the summer, along with outcast wide-man Andrei Arshavin.

With Olivier Giroud the only out-and-out striker in the squad, Wenger wants to add to his centre-forward options.

Theo Walcott is tipped for a move inside from the wing in the longer-term, but Arsenal are keen on adding more firepower to their attack for next season anyway.
