Should Arsenal make an approach for Loic Remy? 0

Posted on August 16, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Chelsea striker Loic Remy has been largely ignored by clubs this summer despite being made available for transfer, but interest is finally growing in his signature. The French international has fallen down the pecking order in his short time at Stamford Bridge and is being linked with a host of clubs in the Premier League and Europe.

Arsenal tried to sign Loic Remy back in the summer of 2014, but he snubbed the Gunners to join Chelsea, going on to win the Premier League title that season. But he’s since been frozen out and is weighing up his options at a time where his stock hasn’t been much lower. Olympique Lyonnais and Crystal Palace are two sides having been linked with Remy, but should Arsenal enquire?

Would Arsenal stand a chance of signing Chelsea’s Loic Remy in January? 0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted he would like to make at least one signing in the January transfer window, believed to be FC Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny, but the Londoners could also do with bolstering their attack with some pace and power to give them another option going forward. Chelsea striker Loic Remy could be on the market due to a lack of game time this season, but is there any possibility of the two London clubs doing business again.

Arsenal host Premier League leaders Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal are the form team of the Premier League having won eight straight games and moving into second-place in the table behind their Sunday opponents.

However, Jose Mourinho’s team are still ten points ahead of the Gunners and a win in north London would move them one-step closer to securing the title this season, as they would need just one more victory to win the league.

Premier League leaders Chelsea face serious selection worries ahead of Sunday’s high-profile clash with Arsenal at the Emirates, where the Blues can all but secure the league trophy, according to the Daily Mirror.

It was veteran Didier Drogba who started games against QPR and Manchester United in the absence of Diego Costa and Loic Remy, but the Ivorian has now moved to reveal that is battling an ankle problem.

The 37-year-old completed full ninety minutes against Manchester United at the weekend, but he was then forced to miss a charity match through an ankle injury, which makes him doubtful for the Arsenal game.

Should Arsenal make last-ditch bid for Remy? 2

While Chelsea are reportedly close to signing Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy after triggering his £8M release clause, should Arsenal make a last-minute bid to sign him?

Liverpool were on the cusp of procuring his signature earlier this summer, but pulled out of the deal, with reports from the Liverpool camp suggesting he failed a medical.

Gunners striker Olivier Giroud is out of action until the New Year, and his stand-in, Alexis Sanchez, is new to the Premier League and will take time to find his feet. However, manager Arsene Wenger appears keen to entrust him with the scoring duties and to rely on his squad for attacking options.

Are Arsenal better off without controversial duo? 0

Arsenal has been heavily linked with two controversial strikers this summer in Loic Remy and Mario Balotelli. It looks like the Gunners have decided against signing either, as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed they are not in the market for another forward.

Medical

France international Loic Remy had been linked with the Gunners for a long time, but is now reportedly heading to the join the Liverpool squad on tour in the USA and have a medical ahead of completing a £8.5million move from QPR.

Should Arsenal be competing for Loic Remy? 6

According to reports on Sky Sports, Liverpool has agreed a fee of around £8.5million for QPR and France striker Loic Remy. The former-Marseille striker was previously heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.

Value

For that sort of fee the striker seems right up Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s street and the fact that he is also French normally appeals to the Gunners boss. It is surprising that the Gunners have not yet made a move.

Goals

Loic Remy has to be considered a consistent Premier League goalscorer. While on-loan at Newcastle the striker scored 14 Premier League goals and also got three assists in 26 appearances for the Magpies.

Do Arsenal really need Loic Remy now? 4

Posted on July 12, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

With Alexis Sanchez’s arrival to the Emirates, and Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski as attacking options for the Gunners next season, is Loic Remy really needed?

Manager Arsene Wenger said this summer that he was looking at a forward type play who can play as a wide partner for Giroud, but also one who could take the scoring burden off his shoulders. Many thought former player Carlos Vela would be the man to do exactly that, but Arsenal allowed Real Sociedad to buy out the Mexican’s release clause placed on him by Wenger following his move to Spain.

Is French striker heading Arsenal’s way? 0

According to the Independent, Arsenal is set to renew their interest in QPR’s French striker Loic Remy, who is believed to be valued at around £8million. Remy is now back in England after Les Blues World Cup quarter-final exit at the hands of Germany.

Understudy

Remy spent much of the World Cup on the substitute bench, playing understudy to Arsenal’s current first choice striker Olivier Giroud. The 27-year-old striker made just two appearances in Brazil, totalling 28 minutes.

If Remy moved to Arsenal this summer then he may very well be playing a similar sort of role for the Gunners next season, although he would provide much needed assistance to his compatriot Giroud.

Are Gunners right to agree sale of Vela rights? 0

Posted on June 23, 2014 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to sell their rights to Mexican striker Carlos Vela for £8.8million and allow La Liga club Real Sociedad to keep the versatile forward. Vela had been linked with a return to north London, with a £3.5million buy-back clause in his Sociedad contract.

The Gunners could also receive £400,000 if Vela’s Spanish side reach the Champions League and £200,000 if Sociedad make it to the Europa League.
