Remy at Arsenal as rumours link Newcastle loanee with Gunners

Have your say

LOIC Remy has fuelled rumours he is set for a summer move to Arsenal - by turning up at the Emirates Stadium!

The on-loan Newcastle United forward watched the club’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion this afternoon.

Less than 24 hours earlier, the World-Cup-bound France international had scored on what seems certain to be his last home appearance for Newcastle.

The 27-year-old, on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers, struck his 14th goal of the campaign late in the club’s 3-0 win over Cardiff City at St James’s Park.

Remy scored from close range in the 88th minute after a shot from Cheik Tiote was deflected into his path.

Up to now, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been coy on his interest in Remy, who has not spoken to English journalists in recent months.

However, Remy said he was looking to join a “big European club” in an interview on French TV last month.

United manager Alan Pardew is keen to keep Remy at St James’s Park, but the club can’t offer Remy European football - or the kind of contract available to him at a Champions League side.

And Remy appeared to say his goodbyes as he lapped the field with his team-mates after the Cardiff game.
