Premiership giants vying for Remy
Radio Monte Carlo understands that four of England’s top clubs are considering a summer bid for QPR striker Loic Remy.
The Frenchman has impressed during the loan spell at Newcastle, but he is highly unlikely to remain at St James’ Park beyond the current season.
A return to Loftus Road does not seem on the cards either, even if QPR manage to win the promotion play-offs.
According to Radio Monte Carlo, the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool are currently in the race for his signature.
All four clubs will have their scouts present when the Magpies face Arsenal later today, and his suitors are expected to step up their interest in the coming weeks.
The Gunners have been made 1/4 favourites to win tonight’s clash, while Remy is available at 3/1 to score anytime.
