Arsenal having completed the signing of Alexis Sanchez are still in the transfer market for yet another striker, with the club in talks with a number of striker targets.
The gunners are in talks with the management of Loic Remy having already agreed to meet the buy-out clause of the player, which is believed to be in the region of £10 million. However reports have it that the talks have yet again hit a snag, as Arsenal are not prepared to match the wages which Remy receives at Queens Park Rangers.
The French forward earns in the region of £80,000-per-week at his present club and Arsenal have stated clearly that he is to take a pay-cut to enable him complete his move to the Emirates.
With QPR ready to offload the player to lighten their wage burden and the player ready to leave in search of champions league experience, Arsenal have all the advantage to themselves.
But recent reports are now suggesting that the player may be willing to take the pay-cut to join the growing French contingent at the Emirates while fulfilling his long desire to participate in Europe’s most prestigious competition – The Champions league. As Wenger continues his quest for a formidable team, capable of shotting for glory in all front next season.
Remy who has not hidden his love for ex-Arsenal star – Thierry Henry and has equally looked up to the legend as a role model – will be looking to walk in the shoes of the ex-French International should he make the switch over to the Emirates. Although at 27-year-old, it might be looking a bit late but Remy has the believe that he will improve on his 14 goals and 3 assists which he delivered last season while on loan at Newcastle.
