Long-term Arsenal target Loic Remy has come out and said he wants to join the club this summer, but do we need him? The 23 year-old French striker is valued at about £11m, has scored 13 goals in 31 games this season and has been linked with both Arsenal and Lyon in recent years. But it’s the Gunner’s who Remy wants to join as he’s been a life-long Gooner and has even spoken to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry about life in London.

“Arsenal are the club I want to join. I won’t deny they are my priority. Arsenal are a young, ambitious side and I love to watch them play,” he recently told RMC.

“It is the ideal place for me. I spoke with Thierry [Henry] about them and asked him lots of questions about life there.

“That is because I have been an Arsenal fan since I was little. I was not disappointed with what he told me.”

Remy has broken into the French squad recently and may force his way into their World Cup squad. With Wenger being a known admirer, Remy an Arsenal fan, he’s young, wont break the bank, and is French so looks like a perfect potential new recruit….but do we actually need him?

A deal to bring striker Marouane Chamakh on a free is all but confirmed, and with Van Persie, Vela, Bendtner, Eduardo, Arshavin, and Walcott all potential striking options already on the Arsenal books, where would Remy fit in? I am all for buying players who care about the club and dream of playing for us, it makes a nice change, but not just for the sake of it. So if Remy does come we would need to sell someone, most likely Eduardo. That’s the only way i can see this one happening.

What do Arsenal fans think of a potential move for Remy? Please leave your comments below…

    MIGHT BE THE NEXT HENRY – WE NEED ALL THE FIREPOWER WE CAN GET. ARSENAL HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE WORLDS BEST STRIKING OPTIONS; WRIGHT, BERGKAMP, ANELKA, KANU, HENRY, SUKER, RVP.
    THIS WOULD BE A GOOD BUY AS RVP SHOULD BE USED SPARINGLY NEXT SEASON AS WE NEED HIM THROUGHOUT!

      VAN PERSIE IS OUR BEST PLAYER. VELA WILL BE A GOOD PLAYER AND WILL BE ABLE TO COMBINE WITH RVP & CHAMAKH {VELA IS STILL YOUNG}. BENDTNER SHPULD BE BENCHED, SELL EDUARDO, ROSICKY, SILVESTRE,EBOUE , DENILSON. BRING IN VD WIEL, DRENTHE, AFFELLAY, REMY. A GOOD GOALIE SHOULD BE HIS TOP PRIORITY ALSO.

      DJOUROU WILL BE GOOD DEFENDER TO PARTNER VERMAELEN NEXT SEASON

      ————-BUFFON———
      –SAGNA—–DJOUROU—–VERMAELEN—CLICHY

      —————DRENTHE——SONG——
      ———————–CESC————–
      ——NASRI——CHAMAKH———RVP

      DEPTH: ARSHRAVIN, REMY, AFFELAY, WALCOTT, TRAORE, VD WIEL, GALLAS, WALCOTT, BEDNTER, DIABY, MANNONE

    Looks like Arshavin is on his way out so could be a good move to get Remy in. Theo and Vela are just not up to it so will be used from the bench so this could be just what we need.

    How the hell do we have enough strikers, Vela, Walcott and Arshavin do not play upfront. We will have only 2 good options in Van Persie and Chamakh and therefore we need better back up. I believe Bendtner can improve but he’s not quite there yet and as for Eduardo I think we should give him a chance to play next season. Wenger might revert back to 4-4-2 allowing Eduardo to get some support because he cant play on his own upfront he aint that type of player. And as for Arshavin, he can fuck off to Barcelona he is lazy moaning big mouthed Russion knob. Get Joe Hart/Buffon/Frey, Subotic, Sissoko, Flamini, Chamakh and Angel Di Maria! This guy is some player trust me and he’s got pace and is left footed, would bee perfect for our team!!

    I read a great blog about how much players of arsenal spent this season on pitch. Gallas and RVP haven’t played enough games so these are position we need to strengthen. If you believe in vela or bentner you have a problem. They can’t give us title. people, WAKE UP. Chamakh is one good player but if last season repeats, rvp gets injured, we won’t have good attack. We will welcome any new attacking option and we will welcome old formation. This is how I imagine arsenal next season:

    ? (joe hart, or frey)
    sagna vermaelen (new one) clichy

    nasri song fabregas arshavin

    chamakh van persie

    Bench: Almunia, Gallas, new frontman…

    I still think about left footed midfield. I believe we could push arshavin on right instead of nasri and bring one leftfooted player on left to run through side and deliver quality crosses. It could be Di Maria but it is just my dream, he is too expensive. Vela, eduardo, van persie cannot do this job so this signing would be ideal.
