Harry Redknapp has revealed that Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is more likely to join Arsenal, rather than their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Remy returned to Loftus Road this summer following a loan move to Newcastle United last season after the R’s relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.
The striker scored an impressive 14 goals in 26 games for Newcastle, with his form rewarding him with a place in Didier Deschamps’ World Cup squad this summer as they reached the Quarter Finals in Brazil.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Redknapp revelead; “I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere.”
“We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he’s really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year.
“If he goes to the right team, he’s capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season.”
Arsenal beat Spurs to the race for 4th place last season, although it could’ve been a different story for the Gunners after they were top of the table in February, but their form dropped along with their league position.
Arsene Wenger has already added Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez to his front line, so a move to the Emirates for Remy may see his first team chances limited, so it would depend if Remy prefers regular football with Spurs or appearing for Arsenal in a cameo role with the chance of playing in next seasons Champions League.
