The 27 year old who is currently on a season long loan at St James Park from QPR, has been impressive scoring 13 goals in 23 Premier League games this campaign.
Newcastle United are ready to make his stay a permanent one, while Spurs are also rumoured to be interested in him, but a source close to the attacker told the Mirror that he would prefer to move to the Emirates Stadium over a switch to Tim Sherwood’s side (understandably).
If Arsenal want him that’s where he will go.
Where else would be big fan of Thierry Henry want to go?
The French international will return back to Loftus Road at the end of the season, but it’s likely that he will be sold in the summer. Wenger has been a long time admirer of the pacy forward who could be available this summer for about £15 million.
Remy moved to England in last season’s winter window, but with QPR being relegated he made a summer loan move to Newcastle with the objective of staying in the Premier League. He has performed exceptionally for Alan Pardew in the first half of the campaign, but has lost his scoring touch in recent times mainly due to injury troubles.
He has superb acceleration and likes to make runs off the shoulders of defenders and his pace means he finds himself in a lot of one-on-one situations with the opposing goalkeeper. He’s not bad in the air too, as quite a few of the goals he scores are with his head from crosses from either wing. He can also be deployed out wide on either flank.
The Frenchman would be the kind of striker who would also suit Mesut Ozil, with Giroud often too stationary for the play-maker. Remy would make the runs behind the defence that helped the German become so successful at Real Madrid. He has all the required attributes to be a successful player at Emirates and will give Giroud a run for his money for a place in the starting eleven.
If we struggle to find a marquee striker in the summer, then we should sign him. He has been playing in the Premier League for the last year plus and will not need to adapt to the league. Remy will also find it hard to resist a move if Wenger is indeed interested.
