Some interesting news regarding the future of Loic Remy this morning with the Independent reporting that Arsenal have made a late move to sign the striker.

The report suggests boss Arsene Wenger has identified the 26-year-old as the striker he needs to overhaul Tottenham and Chelsea in the Premier League table and is ready to make his move in a deal that could be worth in the region of £10 million.

The newspaper claims the Marseille hitman has attracted interest from the likes of Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle, Schalke and Inter Milan during this transfer window but the Gunners are now considered as favourites after throwing their hat into the ring.

According to the Independent, Marseille are prepared to sell Remy this month and suggest it’s now a two-way fight between Arsenal and Newcastle for the French international after Harry Redknapp was unable to lure the striker to QPR after flying to France last weekend to try and secure a deal.

Remy is understood to be willing to remain with Marseille for the rest of the season but the news of Arsenal’s interest may change things, with the striker believed to be a boyhood Gooner.

This is an interesting piece of news if true. With Marouane Chamakh loaned to West Ham for the rest of the season I think we could certainly do with bringing in another striker this month, but is Remy the best option?

He’s scored 39 goals in his 95 appearances for Marseille since making the move from Nice in 2010, which is a decent return, but it’s not jaw-dropping. He’s struggled with injury this season and has only made 8 league appearances so far and has failed to find the net, so he’s hardly in red-hot form either.

But I wouldn’t be too unhappy if Remy was to make the move to north London this month. He’d give us another option up top and can play on the wing’s if needed. Let’s see how this develops in the coming days.

What do Arsenal fans think? Would you like to see Remy come to the club? Get involved in the comments section below.

    I think we( Arsenal fans) still missed the likes of T. henry, Pires, Viera, Wiltord. Let’s try this Remy and see

    Should stop messing with these second rate strikers (I include Giroud, although he does try) + spend good money on proven pedigree….David Villa

    I do not think Arsenal know what they actually want. We hear different story every day regarding this player or that without real substance and we are now almost half away towards the end of the transfer window and nothing has happened so far and not likely to happen. So, Arsenal fans have to accept the notion that no more players this time around.

    We(Aresenal) have about 70 players, 5% were good while d rest were useless. Why dont we think of disposing some and inject capables one? Remy is an injury player that’s all.

    The manager should try and sign one defender, one mid-fielder, and one in-form striker to make the team squad to be more stronger than it is presently. Because we have a lot of tough match ahead.besides, the signing must take place urgently for the tranquile of the club

    It’s a good news to hear about loic remy,but he is not a king striker that deserve to be our bullet.D.villa,A.lopez and lucas biglia that wil make a diffrence.

    Why is this man not thinking about bringing in a defensive midfielder that will be covering the back four? Or does he not know that our back four are often exposed bcos of lack of cover?

    I dont think Mr Wenger will stil go to france and bring another striker for u, bcos we have try like two/three striker their is failure to arsenal. Give us like Lopes, Cavani, Michu.

    Head to head someone point to the replacements for Titi,Ljunberg,Pires,viera etc
    I’ll give Remy a chance because he is not a flashy striker just like BA I hope he delivers and bring competition for Giroud and THeo

    ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB MR WENGER
    Never mentions to anyone before hand who they are going to buy or speculate , wenger just does it he certernly does not listen to the fans ,more importantly arsenal have big games coming up and need to get nine points to stay in touch for what wenger wants anyway and that is the fourth place position we need to beat man city chelsea and man utd who we have coming up shortly , 9 points out of three or will it be less lets see , come on wenger sorry i mean the arsenal
