Wenger wants in form Frenchman.
Arsenal is the main target for highly talented Loic Remy 22-year-old Nice striker
Arsenal have been linked with another skillful French player.
It has been reported through French daily newspaper – L’Equipe that the Nice striker would favour a move from Ligue 1 to the Premier League club Arsenal.
The north London club will have to fight off stiff Premier League interest from both Everton and Sunderland who enquired about the young French forward in the summer.
Although Remy said it would be hard to make a transition to a new team in the middle of the season as well as respecting and honouring his Nice contract, Arsenal would be hard to turn down.
The young forward already has a close connection with Arsenal and also speaks to some of the French senior players regularly.
“I often speak with Abu (Diaby) and Bacary (Sagna),” revealed Remy. “They say that once you’re there, you want to spend your whole career there … ”
With this talented French star making the headlines for his club and also recently earned his first international cap in the summer.

22 year old Loic Remy has seen his career take a big jump forwards in recent months and proved that moving away from the ultra successful Lyon side of the last few years in search of a regular starting spot has paid off. His move to Nice has proved productive on the goal scoring front and he has netted seven times this season already and in June received his first full French cap and it is no surprise that all and sundry are now reportedly chasing the well build speedy front man.
Arsene Wenger may well see in Remy another attacking option that he could mould to fit his Arsenal squad. Although a very accomplished finisher Loic is also very handy when playing out wide where his pace and power can be devastatingly effective.
Nice have reportedly slapped a £12m price tag on their prized asset but that may not scare away the north London side who may make a move for the up and coming talent.
